    Nice Roger, excellent write up, that will definitely help other Civic users. :GoodJob:

    6 - 10 clicks sounds way too much to me personally. I know I have set my car at 3 clicks.

    In my 5th Generation Accord Workshop manual, it stated the lever should lock between 6-11 notches.
    When I adjusted my 7th Generation handbrake, it locks at about 7-8 IIRC. Are your rear wheels rotating freely when the handbrake is released @Nighthawk?

    Yup, rotate absolutely fine, no dragging whatsoever.

    Great write up @RogerH69

    @Nighthawk I tried 3 clicks last time I adjusted my CL9 handbrake and it was too tight, so I settled for 6 clicks.

    @Nighthawk - I agree it sounds a little high, especially seeing as at 8 clicks, the handbrake still seems pretty high (and still knocks my armrest). I was just quoting what the Hayes manual said. I don't have the equipment to jack the rear up at the moment (only the standard car jack), so can't really check the optimal setting for my car. I'll see if the guys that did my rear discs and pads will adjust it for me for free, as they said they could adjust it for me if I wanted.
