    Hi,
    I couldn't adjust a parking brake by adjusting a lever only, so I bought and installed new "parking brake hardware kit" with new brake shoes. Hardware kit means with an adjuster inside a drum ( like in old classic cars) - still don't know why Volvo didn't have that option. So I adjusted brake shoes so that now they are almost touching drums. I was hoping to have now a real hand brakes! allowing me to stop real wheels at - say - 50 km/h - like in old classic cars. NO way! Unfortunately! Is there anybody who found a way to have a real hand brakes on S60?
    thanks
