    Hi All,

    Wonder if someone can help me please. Where is the adjuster / tensioner for the handbrake on a 66 plate CR-V. On all my previous cars this has been under the middle compartment between the front seats behind the handbrake handle; but on this CR-V, there is no way to open the bottom of that compartment. I have searched everywhere, and can not find where the tensioner is.
    Or is there some other way of tightening up the handbrake on this model?

    More than likely to be an adjuster on the rear disc/hub unit. the cable adjuster, is just for adjusting a slack cable. Try taking the wheel off and looking for a little plug/hole. in there somewhere will be a star wheel to turn and adjust the park brake
