Hi there. I'm nw to audizine. I have a 1999.5 audi 1.8 quattro 5speed with a k04, drop in k&n and cat back 2.5inch custom exhaust. i replaced my rear rotors, pads and caliper. After i did the brakes i drove it and the pedal was a bit softer so i bleed it again and then it's good now. I took it to canadian tire and they drove it and said the brakes are good. the pedal also feels a bit tighter today. the problem i'm having is my hand brake. before it was about eight clicks and now it's more like fourteen clicks which is really high. they said it may take a few days for it to adjust. is this true? also they said if it doesn't adjust then i would have to open the hand brake cover inside the car and adjust the cables. any know of a link that shows where the screws are to take out the center hand brake cover? thank you.

I get to my hand brake adjustment from under the car.
