E-brake connected prior to install of rear brake “W” spring?


Recommended Posts

Doing this on the bench - install of the “W” not the most troublesome task to date, but I did have the benefit of all the historic FAQ post to digest first.


It occurred to me after I was feeling pretty happy with myself, that I may not be able to get the e-brake lever out far enough once I’ve got it in the car to connect the cable end, given the tension now on the assembly.




Am I surmising correctly on this and need to install the “W” once I’ve got it all back in the car and once the e-brake cable is connected?

That's the only way I've done it, and I'm a regular pro ; ) now that I've done it like 8 times what with the stuck e-brake cable and all. LOL

I don't think you can do it your way, but I've never tried. Hopefully, I'll never go in there again!

Thanks Nick. I knew when I figured out how to get the spring on, that the night had gone too easily. [emoji1]


At least I know now it will come together on the car well enough once I’ve connected the e-brake cable to the lever.
