Recommended Posts

Handbrake cable snapped on my 300 tdi 90.

Bought a sh*tpart replacement.

Its the cable straight into the brake mechanism type,rather than the cable attatched to rod type.

I will be doing this on the road outside my house,so would like to know whats in store before pulling it apart.

Any useful tips greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Jerry.

P.S. tried a search of the tech archive,but it kept crashing on me.

Cable goes direct to drum, inner IIRC clips onto a lever on the shoes - similar to most cars. Clevis pin arrangement at handle end. You will need to remove the drum - see the post by Les H today on Int forum on LT230 rear oil seal replacement.
