Modifying handbrake

Recommended Posts

Land Rover 110 1988 3.5 v8 :rolleyes: Odd question or maybe a lightbulb moment for some budding inventor :blink: . I have a problem being tall 6'3" to be precise :( with the Handbrake digging or restricting my limited comfort. Has there been any improvement with later models also is there a way of modifying my original setup for better comfort.

The Range Rove lever is black. The Discovery one blue.

All you have to do is drill two holes. Unless you have a large girth you should be fine.

Even the cable should fit.

Just follow the instructions on Colins site.

The poctures are of my Defender.

Hi All,

Is there any reason why you cannot move the Defender handbrake lever to that location?


The defender handbrake acts the oposite way to a conventional side mounted one. so if you mounted it horizontal you'd have to push it down to put the brake on. - not so great.
