2007 Renault Master handbrake adjustment?
 
My Adria Izola (on a 2007 Renault Master II base chassis) no longer holds on the handbrake when I put it up on levelling blocks. Does anyone know where the handbrake adjuster is, and how it is adjusted please?

Bump.

I would like to know the answer to this one as it did not get adjusted at the last service and I don't want to take it back there. It still holds but the travel is excessive.

I would suggest that you most likely have a problem with the rear brake adjusters being seized because your cable should not need adjustment.

If you adjust the cable prior to sorting out the self-adjusting mechanism then you could end up with the rear brakes either not working at all on the road or binding.

My advice is to let a local garage have a look first.

Thanks Wizzo - it was my first port of call - a Renault Trucks service base here in the North-East - but they just brushed it off and said that all Masters and Traffics were difficult to get through the MOT on parking brake (low efficiency) and that was the problem.

I think I will put it up on axle stands and check it out myself. Shame that the "professionals" couldn't sort it. :x

According to my garage, there isn't one.

It's one of those things that comes up regularly on the Renault Forums.

The brakes are self adjusting, but because they don't move a lot in service, they seize up, and then you have issues with getting at the calipers and pads.

When we had a Renault Master van, we didn't have that much trouble, but we were on the road every day and it did over 250k miles before we sold it.

Here it is in Quartiera, Portugal:

I'd suggest that if it is seized, then try and find an indy that handles these vehicles, I know we never had the tools to get the front discs off as they were inboard of the hubs, so a major strip down job.
