Esprit handbrake cable

Recommended Posts

Any advice on fitting a new handbrake cable? Got the old one out but having real trouble getting the new cable past the panel at the end of the sill. Any wise words much appreciated!

It's a bit late to offer my advice which is to attach the new to the old, so pull the new in by pulling the old out. As hat's not an option, try using something a bit easier to manipulate  (electrical cable), get that through the route then attach the handbrake cable to that.

You could try to push through some electrical cable from the other side. Then joining this with the handbrake cable and then pulling it back through from the other side of the panel.

As Angus said,   attach electrical cable going onto the new handbrake cable 2 or 3 inches and use electrical tape all the way up the join about 4 inches,   should pull through ok  :thumbup:
