to take carpet up you have to remove the bottom half of the back seat

 

check underneath mate best way

 

just a quick question your front carpet isnt wet aswell it?

 

 

either you have adjusted your shoes out too far on that side or the drum has a serious lip (build up of rust)

on the edge of the drum on the inside

 

to adjust on cable lift the plastic trim and gaiter from arounf the handbrake lever and down the left hand side of the handbrake lever you will see a 10mm nut on a adjusting rod this is were you tension the handbrake up
