Ok lads I failed the test 2nd time to night. After I failed the first time i replaced the two handbrake cables going to the caliper and i changed the pads and cleaned the discs.I seen before the test when i was tighten up the handbrake i rang out off thread so that might be it.I will rebuild the calpers again as i only did them last year and i will get a new cable from the hand brake to so all 3 cables will be new. is there anything i am missing lads?

This is from first test 



And this is from the 2nd test today





any ideas lads 

Thanks

You shouldn't need to tighten the cable at the handbrake!
Leave it loose and jack up the levers on the calipers till they bite against the pads then take up any slack that might be at the handbrake!

You should only do minor adjustments at the handbrake. adjust it at the rear hub/discs

Ok lads I was working on the glanza there. when i drive the car up the drive way 5kms and pull the handbrake the passenger side skids locks up but the drivers side still moves.when i jack up the rear wheels and have handbrake on full i cannt move both sides will that pass nct?

The more i tighten the handbrake cable in the car the worse the drivers wheel gets scratch scratch  

I had a look at the equaliser and it looks good and straight do i have to do adjustment to that?

adjusted the piston on the caliper by hand by moving the piston in with the lever for the handbrake cable with a flathead screwdriver is this right? The handbrake cables were disconnected at the time. 


lads any help please

your caliper might not be 100% might it could just be the handbake mechanism on it not right

you should bring it to a garage that has a brake tester before you bring it for an nct to be sure its 100% i know it might cost more but you will be sure going to the nct save having to bring it back to the nct again

ok lads i think i tightened the handbrake cable in the car to much. i will let it off a good bit and should be fine then as i was thinking the handbrake can only be max 5-7 clicks but i tested 5 cars at work + my accord and it is 10 clicks scratch

I test mine by putting a pry bar between the wheel studs and pull the handbrake one you cant budge with side there grand never failed me. If both are not locking up solid it will prob keep failing and imbalance.

Good stuff dude Smile

I'll leave it open though just in case people have similar trouble and need to know how to adjust it
