I have to yank on my emergency brake really hard for it to be effective. How do I adjust it so it works better? The handle was broke when I got the car, I put a new one on and it feels like I might break it again.

Thanks for any help!

The adjustment is by the rear axle, where the front cable intersects the rear cable. Also make sure the cable is lubed inside the sheath.

Yes, it's just a nut that runs up the threaded end of the cable. Make sure you don't tighten it too tight.
