Re: How to adjust handbrakes on Accord Tourer Manual Transmission CN2's, CM1's and CM
This diagram will come in handy for anyone planning to replace the brake shoes on the Tourer. if anyone needs a DIY for the parking brake shoe just ask I will post it in a separate thread. These shoes will last in excess of 100K miles and even more.
Just to add to this thread Just adjusted the rear shoes on my tourer and like a numpty used a flat screw driver to remove the rubber bung (Image A) to get to the adjuster.. it push it into the cavity!!
off came the caliper > carrier then the >disc to remove the rubber bung!! let this be a reminder don't use a flat screw driver use a pointed claw and use in an outward manner. DON'T push in .
Oops, seems I missed this thread from the Guides migration because of the thread prefix.
There will be more like this bud I will keep an eye out and change em
Apologies for bumping an old thread, but you don't happen to have a guide to fitting new parking brake shoes do you? Thanks!
I'm not sure if anyone has done a Guide for this yet ? @Staff is this correct ?
No not yet its just but the WSM guide is a good starting point for someone to do it.
A good oppurtunity for someone to actually write a guide then.
If there's anything you need to know gimme a shout dude.
I just did mine
Fitting kit is definitely a worthwhile investment.

Pay attention to the orientation of the handbrake levers inside the drum, they are an awkward bitch to put back together.
Whilst apart, wind the adjuster all the way off-site clean and grease them, remember also to slack off the cables under your arm rest otherwise you may struggle to get the disc back over the shoes.
Otherwise, I'm guessing by your ef thread you've enough mechanical ability and common sense to just get stuck in
