Re: T31 ST FWD HANDBRAKE ADJUSTMENT 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.

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.

Re: My Troopy has a similar hand brake system, although being a much heavier car it often fails to hold the car still.
When Adjusting and after lifting the wheel, out of gear and tyre off, once the drum is located with the hole at the bottom (adjuster point) I then pull the handbrake up 4 notches - usually at this point there is little to no resistance from the brake shoes, I then adjust the wheel using a flat blade screwdriver so the shoes are on hard and you can no longer turn the brake drum..
Process is repeated for the other side.
On My Troopy this works until I do some sand and water driving :-)
