Handbrake Cables Knowledge

For the none techy mind, just to check, is it one front cable that leads to two rear cables? And if so , are the left and right cables the same and are they the same for 16v/24v.?

Cables are handed, but if you ( or you’re going to get someone ), to replace them make sure their the same manufacturer, or if there slightly different lengths, there a pig to adjust the hand brake “bit point”

Replace all 3 because the replacements have a larger size nipple to the originals, so you have to place all 3 parts. They ate a bit of a pain to do, and good luck with the heat shield.
