How is the handbrake adjusted on a XH ute? Do you have to take the rear discs off or can it be adjusted from the cable? Thanks for the help

Cable - same as EA/EB/ED.
If you've replaced rear pads, you'll need to reset the rear caliper pistons.

That works on the front calipers, but the rear ones on my ute had to be pushed/threaded back using a special tool/socket. Have a look in the Gregory's service book, it shows how to do it properly. The tool/socket is available from Repco or SuperCrap.
I would get a gregorys/haynes book first and go from there.
Good luck. :D
