Brake cable routing


Recommended Posts

Do the handbrake cables route under the fuel tank or at the side? Does the long brake cable pass under the floor near to the short cable then pass over the gearbox and to the caliper? Any pictures much appreciated.

Here you go Fabian. Not easy to take the pics with the car on the ground in a dark garage but hope these help. Is your battery mounted in the boot as per the S2 or above the fuel tank?
