Handbrake cable has snapped
Hi all, the other day in my Alfa 156 1.8 TS i pulled up at home just putting on the handbrand and it snapped or something happened no force was applied just the normal press in and lift up manouver.
now i went to my local auto supplies shop and they said that this car has 3 handbrake cables.
when i try to put the handbrake on now there is no resistance at all it will easily go upwards right to the top but the handbrake light still comes on when i lift it above the resting position. (when the key in in the ignition im meaning)
my question to the guys who know these cars well is how will i tell which cable is to be changed my father has said he has a bit of time on his hands and will give it a try changing the cable. i dont want to go and purchase all 3 cables then find they are hard to fit and i only needed the first one.
has this happened to anyone else or could anyone shed some light on a solution i would be greatful.
