Title: hand brake cable removal
Post by: wazevan on September 02, 2019, 06:01:45 PM
Hi all, my hand brake cable has snapped.(metal end)I have managed to manual move the hand brake by taking plastic off and pressing the latch.Looked on line and the cable is available to purchase.Any tips on fitting apart from taking the whole unit out.
Cheers

Hello wazevan my friend, I donít know if this helps but my handbrake cable went about two thirds of the way down the car then thereís a little spring and it splits off in a v shaped direction to each of the rear wheels. The cable was easily visible from under the car. I will also see if I can find any guides for u on the internet
