On my MK1 there's an adjustment on the cable underneath the car, roughly in the middle. It's an asy adjustment with 2 spanners and a bit of WD40! Mine needed quite a few turns to get a reasonable brake for MOT and passed no probs :D (apart from the tester saying the rear fogs didn't work when in fact he was turning the fronts on LOL).

Hi

Any chance you could forward the pictures onto me too - asadamin_uk@hotmail.com

A replaced the rear shoes some time ago, but think i may have put the adjusters on wrong way round.

Any help or advise would be appreciated.

Thanks
