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

Do your hand brakes use a drum at the center of the disc brakes
Or do they use the disc brakes???

I think it might be drum, but I've only just got it and haven't been under it as its not stopped raining for days.....

Was thinking is might be cable slack only....

Could be cable slack
Or could be your parking brakes need adjustment
Some are self adjusting ( some when the car is put into reverse)
Some the pads or shoe wears out

The first things to do is usually an inspection to determine the condition
