The page that had the instructions of how to do it is gone, does anyone have it anywhere else? the manual is way too frustrating, and I seem to have forgotten how to do it. All of the post onthe board refer to the page that is no longer there, so there isnt anything about it here either.

Here you go: I found a copy via the Internet Wayback Machine ("Gosh, Mr. Peabody!") and printed it to PDF.

But don't use feeler gauges!

If you use feeler gauges to set the clearance you'll end up with a handbrake lever that points at the sunroof and a brake pedal that goes half way to the floor before anything happens.

I adjust the brakes (outers first) with the wheels off the ground. Turn the wheel as you tighten the adjuster then when it starts to drag slightly, back off a tad until it runs free. The do the same with the inner (handbrake off obviously) then do the other side.

Nice solid brake pedal and about 3 or 4 clicks on the handbrake ratchet before the wheel locks.
