Corsa c 1.3cdti Handbrake
« on: 23 April 2018, 13:34:07 »

Anything I should know about replacing these things ?
Any clips needed ?

The thing is in a pretty shit condition and sticking on one side so a full strip down needed me thinks  :y
Also seams to be flapping around across the beam  :-\

Dead easy to be honest, the usual is cables that have been poorly looked after (note greased) and corrode into the nylon guides, a cable set is cheap enough and not hard to change.

Stripping the drums off and cleaning out is worthwhile, pop the dust cover out then its a large nut to remove the drum assembly (180Nm from memory).

When clean and installed properly, the auto adjusters actually work very well but, the handbrake cable does need some slack in it (when released) for it to function

And while your underneath it, change the stupid plastic linkage on the Gearbox with a upgraded Metal One (about 8 quid) to save yourself getting stranded with a Flappy Paddle Gear Stick one rainy night.  ;)

LMFAO  ;D ;D
Been there, done that a couple of years ago ::) ;D
Fixed by reseating the seals and emptying half a can of spray carpet glue around the seals  :y
A bit messy but it ain't ever going to leak and them bits will never rust either  :D

Works a treat too  :y ;D
