Parking Brake Handle Mounting Assembly .... Removeable ??


Recommended Posts

This is the parking brake handle mounting location between the seats ...... the driver's side tab needs some repair work.

 

Can this whole assembly be removed as a unit ??    Or is it permanently attached to the bodywork ??

 

Not the best of locations for a welding torch ......

I believe everything here is welded in! Agreed: not good!

There are a bunch of discussions of the handbrake repair topic on the forum -- especially as it is a longstanding problem area -- and I seem to recall that some owners may have made repairs without welding.

Good luck,

Steve

nuts.

 

The actual problem is the driver's-side flange hole is nicely elongated, which results in: 

1)  the handbrake handle itself no longer being centered fore-and-aft between the seats, it "leans" toward the driver's side.

2)  the pull on each brake cable is not equal, so there's unequal braking force on each rear wheel.

 

SO, for a fixit, I'm planning on installing a properly-positioned metal washer on the outside of the driver's side flange, then welding it in place.  The handbrake handle mounting pin will then bear on the washer to maintain proper position.

 

 

 

Cheers,
