Handbrake check (Every 12 000 miles (20 000 km) or 12 months)

Chock the front roadwheels and jack the rear wheels clear of the ground, supporting the vehicle with axlestands.

Check that with the handbrake released, the rear wheels are free to rotate and no brake УbindФ is evident. The handbrake lever travel should be between two and four clicks of the ratchet. If brake УbindФ or excessive lever travel is evident, check the handbrake cable routing and check the self-adjuster mechanism for wear or damage. Refer to Chapter 10 for full service information.
