There was no auto jumble at Auto Italia, which was a mild disappointment...

Ian

I think that's probably my biggest gripe about all the Auto Italia events, there are often very few commercial stands that actually sell anything useful (Brooklands probably has the best range).

A couple of years ago there was a small 'Italian market', then last year nothing, which was a step backwards in my opinion.   Didn't go this year as cost was a factor (25 to get my family in to a museum I've been to twice already and changes very little)

Not sure how busy it was - but hopefully the weather meant there was lots of nice stuff there.

Lin pulled up and applied the handbrake on her Dedra 2.0ie. It went clunck and the lever lost its control over things. Could it be the cable?

Peter... that sounds like the first line of a Barbara Cartland novel...  Grin

Starting at the lever, is the button sprung as normal and operating the ratchet on the lever?
Does the lever feel like it builds resistance as you pull it?
With the car rolling gently, pull on the lever... does the car brake at all (rear end sinking)?

Pulling the lever right up it does just hold the car. Cant say anymore until Wednesday as I have to take Barbara's dog for a walk. Will report back and btw, thanks in advance.

Surrealism is alive and well on this forum.  Peter - that is the most bizarre comment I have read on here in a long time.  You've really cheered me up.  LOL!!

Peter,
If you try to pull away with the handbrake on does it seems to hold more on one side? There are 2 cables  & if so it sounds like the cable to the other side isn't holding , but, it might be the handbrake side of the caliper so try the cables first.

Below are diagrams & photos of the rear brakes from the manual & parts list.

Thanks Brian you are right, one cable has gone awol. have now spoken to Neil at Pershore who reckons, for the price its best to change both, will keep you up to date. Glad I cheered our Chris up, he has looked a bit peaky lately.
