Default 807 handbrake adjustment

hello

The handbrake on my 807 is really high and needs adjusting, is it automatic? or is this a job one can do yourself? ive heard a few people say its just a 10mm nut you loosen thread the cable through more then tighten, does this sound right?

Regards

Handbrake is weak on the 807's mainly because it uses the same size calipers as a Scenic hence the lack of bite. Our's improved once I fitted two new short cables (from Peugeot) only the long cable over to the nearside wheel of the original 3 was nylon lined, the two shorter ones were metal to metal.
In theory the handbrake should not need adjustment as the calipers self adjust for wear in the pads but you can tighten the adjuster on the first cable if you don't feel the handbrake start to engage by the third click.
