Wanting to keep the standard 12v plug end on the cabling though, and it should be plenty long enough to run through the handbrake tunnel :-)

Another thanks to the OP for this guide. I Picked up a used 1.6 N-tec dig-t this week and was slightly concerned at how much travel there was in the cable. Luckily i stumbled across this forum looking for some other info (tyre wear!) and found this thread. Couldn't have been a simpler fix.

Brilliant info thank you. Just tightened mine (2016 Pulsar). Arnold Clark wanted £118 to "investigate" excessive hand brake play and imbalanced rear axle braking during MOT. All pads/shoes/discs were evenly worn and I'm guessing all that was needing done was this tightening. I'll be going elsewhere for retest.

I'd forgotten all about the excessive handbrake travel. When my Pulsar was new I almost needed to get the rear passenger to pull it back! At the first service it was adjusted to the same level as any 'normal' car. How they could ever think the original setting was acceptable is beyond me.
