My handbrake doesnt work and need to get it sorted as MOT time will be on me before i know it!
The car has discs at the rear, but im not sure whether the are dunlop or ATE.. So first off, how do i tell?
I have checked handbrake its self, replaced ratched and all seems ok.
Underneath, the main cable was hanging down and the (what i assume) adjusting mechanism wasnt screwed in to the bracket. Screwed this back in which made no difference.
Pulling the handbrake does give some movement on the cable and linkage, but there is litterally no resistance to it at all.
The next thing i am unsure about, is the 2 rods that come out of the linkage on the diff. These arent cables, they are like think metal rods (which i cant see listed on the internet anywhere).
One of them is a bit bent, but neither seem to have much affect on the brake!
Can anyone offer any pointers on what my problem is or where to start?
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance.
