pull up on the gear stick leather and itís surriund , there may be screws under the stereo area , there are two screws at the other end of the console under the cd door , from memory the middle now lifts up , there is a nut on the handbrake use a 10mm spanner to tighten it down , donít over do it or your handbrake will be on all the time , look for around 7 clicks on the handbrake to be fully on , hope that makes sense

ah right ok, thanks, I remember on my classic type r the adjustment was behind the rear brakes, small hole in back of brake carrier to insert screwdriver and flick the little cog up or down, foz sounds a bit easier.

the internal cable only tightens the lever, proper adjustment should be done at the rear hub (as you described) first..........
