this is more of an info for the prado owners.
i had this problem with handbrake, getting loose often. here is what i done.
adjust star wheel so its holds good in about 5-6 clicks on handle. drive slowly but fast enought to.. when you pull the handbrake see the marks on the road and notice which side is not holding or breaking. i had to re-adjust starwheels numerous times and driver side ended up with 4 clicks loose on starwheel and the other side 11 clicks loose. now they are breaking evenly at the same time and suprise the hanbrake handle are on 6 clicks up to lock the handbrakes fully. What happens, and many not realise is the cross cable are not pulling evenly at the same time. go under your car and get a helper to pull handbrake and see it for yourself, left side are breaking even before the other side start to move by the cable. Well it worked for me, may work for you.
Just a tought many of you may still suffer from bad handbrake with prado:)
