Subject: Re: handbrake adjust (c900)


Ok, I think I've got everything figured out: When I replaced the rear pads in the first place, I think I failed to properly clean and lubricate the calipers. Due to my relative inexperience with brakes, I didn't clean and lubricate the areas on the calipers where the metal parts of the brake pads need to slide. Also, I didn't clean or lubricate the guide pins. And so I took everything apart again, and cleaned/lubed the critical areas. After this, I found the brakes to be much easier to adjust. In fact, I got the brakes AND parking brake working nicely without much trouble at all. Thanks everyone for your help. John
