Brake cable adjusters
« on: 11, June, 2014 - 23:59:55 »
My C5 has new brake handles on it. I have got hold of a pair of originals with the built in handbrake. My problem is they didn't come with the adjusters to hold the cable in place, and I can't find M2 size ones in modern shops now.

Anyone have a pair of adjusters that fit, or know where I can pick a pair up?

Hi there that original handles do not have adjusters , the cable adjusters are at the other end of the cable . the front one is in the caliper and the back one is near the back wheel. I do have some adjusters just not sure of the size let me know where ou want them to go

Thanks Chas. OK - how do I get the cable to stay in the groove then at the lever end? Every time I use the handle, or turn right, the cable slides straight out of the slot - I've looked everywhere for stock photos of the handbrake lever to see if some fitting might be missing. Do you just crush the handlebar end to clasp the cable in it, maybe?

Hi there some cables are sold with the ends that fit into the small hole ..I think I have a couple If so I will post them to you but you will have to pull the inner cable out to put them on ...do not pull the outer out as it will be hard to put it back
