I've got two mondies, one with self adjusting (y reg) and the other has an adjuster (52 plate). THE ADJUSTER IS WHERE THE TWO REAR CABLES CONNECT TO THE ONE FRONT SINGLE CABLE. You have to drop the exhaust of it's rubbers so it hangs down then unscrew the heat shield above the center box and the adjuster is there (what I would do is to unscrew the heat shield by the center box first before dropping the exhaust, get a tourch and see if you can see the adjuster,if you carnt see the adjuster then dont bother going any further) as said if you carnt see the adjuster then it will be the self adjuster type, then you will require two new handbrake cables, this will solve your problem.

Try see'ing if you can get any more adjustment out of the adjuster as it has a long thread on it, if not then yes I would recommend new cables, they are easy to do just fiddly where they bend round the rear suspension arms, back the adjust right off aswell before fitting the new cables then adjust back up afterwards.
