Re: Grand Scenic manual handbrake conversion?
Converting scenic 2 s is more then possible.
Grand scenic less so. First would be lever mountings which are on scenics. Second as you say cables.
Good news is callipers will be ok.
Bolting a lever to the floor isn't difficult nor would a cable hole.
Making it look right with centre trim panel. Depends on what you want
Cables. Scenic uses separate cables from lever to each caliper
Many cars use a single cable to an axle mounted regulator which connects and equalises load for secondary cables
So a wander round a scrapyard with tape rule and an open mind could find a solution.
If you find a solution, please share.
I take it your black box is dead?
