Problems removing Clio II RH handbrake cable
My Clio II 2005 1.5 DCI (rear disc brakes) has just lost its RH handbrake cable (lug snapped off the end at the caliper).
I removed the heat shield above the exhaust and removed the remaining end of the cable from the splitter/equiliser, but I can not remove the hand brake cable entirely from the car as just behind the equiliser T, above the exhaust, the 2 hand brake cables go through holes in the under side of the car, the lug on the end of the cable will not pass through the hole and out the other end? So it's impossible to remove without cutting off (which I now have)
Am I supposed to knock the little tube out of the hole or something? Something has to change under there or I'll never be able to feed a new cable back through the hole.
