Removing handbrake cables

Post by MikeyG » Wed Jul 24, 2019 12:15 am

Hi guys,

1994 2l, can't get the handbrake cables off the rear calipers. Turning the adjustment nut at the rear just spins, can I adjust something elsewhere? Was following this guide: http://probefaq.org/service/rear-pads.html

Any help greatly appreciated.

release the hand brake,take the cable clip off then push the the lever forward on the cable
to release the cable nipple and the cable can be pulled backwards out of the holder

If you are just trying to remove the cable from the calliper, then no

Where you were trying to adjust the cable (never known anyone adjust it there before) there is a U shaped metal clip. Remove the clip, pull the outer cable towards the front of the car slightly, then you can slide it out and then unhook it from the calliper
