    No, how do you do that, is there a hole in the drum? Do you just insert a screwdriver? Which way to tighten?

          The adjustment on 120 & 150 is basically the same.
          The console is very different.
          Cable stretch will need to be adjusted out of the 150's at least once.
          But you need to make sure is right at the disc/drum first.

            I adjusted the handbrake on my 120 today. First picture FYI has the disk rotor removed so you can see where the cogged adjuster is on the bottom. You don't need to remove rotors or calipers to adjust the handbrake, only remove the rear wheels:

            Now reassembled with rotor and caliper on, both rear wheels raised on axle stands in neutral (handbrake lever off), rotate axle until hole is down and adjust wheel up with a screwdirver until you hear rubbing when rotating the rotor, then back off slightly. Repeat on both sides.

              A little tip to add to this post. The hub has an indented steel plate at the rear with a small section providing slightly more finger access - so turn the hub to get better access. Forget trying to undo (and redo) the 180 degree turn brake shoe pin holder (top hat), just lift the retainer tab out of the hole on the shoe and the shoe can be slid out as the retainer pin actually sits in an open slot. Reassembly can be done by putting the retainer (top hat) and springs on the pin and carefully holding them back whilst sliding the shoe back on and locating the tab back in the hole with a screwdriver. If you really want to do it the old fashioned hard way, then the metal bar thatís sits between the top of the shoes can be used to push the top hat back whilst a long nose set of pliers through one of the holes on the hub can be used to grip and turn the pin. Easy when you know how!
