A Quick Q & A
Of the Emergency Brake
From a recent Team3S List discussion... :
I just converted my '92 TT's rear brake calipers to
'94+ beefier ones.. everything is good except one side
effect --: my hand brakes are very loose now.. even
when tightened all the way.
A.>>>:I've got this one...:
Under your center console, there is yet another adjustment in the e-brake cable. A couple of turns here, and you will be set. Remove the center console, (the part with the hinged door). There is probably a total of 6 (or so) screws. Once you do this - you will see an adjustment for the e-brake. I had the same problem - they had no more adjustment at the brake, but inside the car, there was enough adjustment left to lock the rears entirely if I wanted to...
