    its being caused by the *******ing new cable being a load of ****e

    despite the clip not being broken it just pops off at the handle end, no wonder i cant get it to work

    ive devised a little mod that will sort it hopefully, just need daylight to do it so hopefully will get an hour after work tomorrow

    Did I sell you the cable? I’ve had no complaints from anyone else and I have one fitted to my own car.

    Could be from you m8, the clip is the issue, itís not broken but just doesnít grip the handle bracket,
    It holds the cable nicely and is fine when I pull but as soon as i release it instead of the inner returning the clip pings off and the whole lot moves
    Iím going to blob some strong glue on it later and I reckon thatíll sort it
