Default Expert E7 Handbrake adjustment

I replaced the rear discs and pads on my cab. Ever since i have done this, there is is now a lot of travel on my handbrake.

I went underneath to look for the adjuster but couldn't find it only a black plastic clip that comes from the handbrake lever with an unlock and lock sign.

Anyone got a guide or tips?

Look underneath the car under the handbrake, you will see as you have done the lock /unlock. this unlocks the outer handbrake cable. You turn it 1/4 turn if I remember. Once you've unlocked it, pull the outer cable rearwards to take up the slack then lock it again, Just make sure you leave tiny bit of slack, you don't want the brakes binding.
Job done

You also need to make sure the levers on the calipers are fully retracted and move freely or it wont self adjust.
