adjusting parking brake on Honda CRX

Just wanted to share with you all how easy it is to adjust the parking brake on CRX-ses.

Parking brake - no cover There is a small nut that is right under the pb lever console trim. It takes about 2 minutes to make your parking brakes adjusted properly.
Parking brake cover screws location. As you can see on the picture there are two small lids on the lever console. Front one covers the screws that hold the console trim and rear one covers the equalizer. All you need to do is open the rear lid and using 13 mm wrench adjust the parking brake. I opened it with my car key...
Adjustment directions. To give you an idea how tight it should be - parking brake should hold your car on the 10% hill on between 6 and 10 clicks of the parking brake.

You can do adjustments with lever console removed or in-place.
It always helps to remove small panels once in a while and clean them separately as well as surface under those panells.
