removing the centre console is the easy part,
handbrake is auto adjust, just doesn't work very well on any nitro, you need to make sure the handbrake shoes are adjusted correctly, and the linkage between the cables and the shoes are not siezed (where the cable passes into the rear brake houseing), then remove the centre console, clean and lube the auto adjuster on the brake lever, there is also a Airbag module under the centre console, so best to disconnect the vehicles battery Negative lead before any work is started,
