T31 ST FWD HANDBRAKE ADJUSTMENT


Hi.

I have a T31 MY11 ST 2.0 FWD with rear disc brakes and I need to know how to adjust the handbrake. At present it clicks up to 12 notches but I want it to click 8

I can adjust it through the small hole in the handbrake but Nissan inform me that it can only be adjusted a small margin this way and suggest adjusting it at the wheels but I do not how.

Kind Regards

pitpan

Stuart,
You will have both rear discs pads for "stopping" but also a brake drum in the centre with small brake shoes for your handbrake.
As stated in the suggested thread provided by Jalaski, cable slack can be taken up at the handbrake lever end.

As David correctly stated, the hand brake operates with a dedicated brake shoe that it totally independent of the brake pads.

Here are the adjustment instructions for the T31 X-Trail which are the same for all xtrail models (taken from the T31 Electronic Service Manual)

At the completion of the adjustment the handbrake needs to engage with a maximum of 7-8 notches.

Re:


When adjusting any hand brake,
Always START WITH THE WHEEL ADJUSTERS - on the drum
otherwise it is like buying trousers 3 sizes too big and expecting the draw string to make them fit.
Most of the time the cable doesn't need to be adjusted, unless replacing it which is common when adjusted by the cable.

I have worked as a mechanic for too many years
