    Get a Haynes manual. It'll show you how to do it step by step.

    Il try and find a guide online..

    Do i need anything to tighten it? Wire etc?

    The ease of doing this varies from car to car. With most cars you will have to adjust the handbrake from underneath the car which will mean using car ramps or axel stands. I think wickes were doing axel stands for £3 - there was a deal posted on here about a week ago...

    Usually involves adjusting a nut on a thread but the thread will be rusted and drop bits of dirt in your eye and you can usually only have enough room to turn the spanner a quarter of a turn......

    All you have to do.

    is take the ashtray assembly out and use a spanner to tighten the 10mm nut.
