    Hey there, I have a 2016 i40. The battery died and we needed to push the car out of the way. But we couldn’t because of the handbrake. With a dead battery, we couldn’t release the brake as the car couldn’t start. Anyone know how to manually release the hand brake?

    Hi, How do I tighten the ix20 handbrake? I changed all rear pads easily enough but cannot see how to adjust the handbrake / tighten it. It comes up quite high, well pretty much all the way, and is quite slack when down with no tension for a couple of inches on the way up. No videos anywhere...

    Handbrake has to be pulled right up to get it to work. Won't hold on a hill. Is there an easy way to adjust it as nothing happens until the 5th click? Pads look fine as do the disks and nothing is binding. Thanks all
