Hi. Can anyone tell me how I go about tightening the handbrake on my 04 vivaro? If I put it on as hard as I can the van still rolls if on a hill.
Thanks

Adjuster is under the back of the van near the spare wheel.

As Billy says you'll need to check the calipers in case they're sticking as they will seize for fun on these vans. The sprung levers on the back of them operate the handbrake and are especially prone to seizing.

However the cables do stretch over time and if the handbrake lever travel is really long and slack then it may indeed just need nipped up at the adjuster.
