Hi.

 Check the rear brakes first and make sure they are OK and adjusted. Adjusting the handbrake cable will not improve how good the brake work,s but just the amount the handbrake lever moves.

Best advice is to get hold of a Haynes manual to cover this procedure, and all the other problems that Daughter will be throwing at you!

Not sure of the manual number because you are right on a change over point at this model year, and you haven't specified whether it's petrol or diesel.

Pop down to Halfords, or your local car accessory shop, with the vehicle details and they will be able to help.

from what i can remember the ajustment for the handbrake is underneath the car behind the heat shields of the exhaust but do as what was posted before CHECK AND AJUST UP THE REAR BRAKES FIRST, ive worked on many clios and have had problems with the shoe ajusters siezed or not working properly.
