Thread: hand brake cable hangers

  1. #1

    hand brake cable hangers

    does anyone have a fitted picture of the wire hanger that the hand brake cable attaches to as it moves along the rear axle

    finally getting around to getting these fitted but cant see how they attach? - same as mk2 golf

    i can best describe these as small curtain hanger type?

    thanks

    Have a look on the photos on page one and you will see the white hangers mate.

    Cheers.

    all is well - is your parts hunt over!

    Its not the white hangars - these are metal coat hanger material (best way i can describe it) like y shape

    i cant up load pictures

    i had these quite a while now from the local vw dealer but never got them fitted

    drooping handbrake cables not a pretty sight - these may not be on a vr6?

    by the way that car is clean underneath - looks like a new car - shame to take it out in the rain to get dirty

    I know what you mean mate got Stealth to fit them on my VR6 , all I know is he had to rip the old ones out of the rear subframe, and they were a pain in the ass to get out and he had to use some serious pliers, they actually slot into the subframes, I think he had no issues putting the new ones in though.

    Part hunt has been fazed out at present. They fir at each end I believe you just need to find the housing for them .
