Angry Renault Scenic Break Cables

I've just had new pads and discs fitted to my Renault Megane Scenic Expression 1.6 so imagined that this would fix a problem I was having with my breaks & handbreak not working at one side properly although for some reason my rear break cable does not seem to be tightening when I am hitting my breaks, I had a friend have a look at it who called both the Renault helpline & the locar car spares shop who advised that because of the electric breaking mechanism to replace the break cables could cost up to 500 to fix as they will not sell these cables seperately, Please tell me this can't be true & the break cables can be sourced somewhere without buying a whole new mechanism, I would appreciate any help at all with this or if someone could even give me a link to where I can get the break cables would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Re: Renault Scenic Break Cables

If you have broken cables as you repeatedly state, then you need to replace them. I would get some proper brake cables if I was you.

I remember reading a thread about the same problem and someone did get cables made to suit. if you search the forum (its at the top)for posts about electronic handbrake or similar words you will after a lot of reading find out.
there are firms that make any cable length and fitting if you give them the broken one but the right post will help explain how to sort it out

Happy reading

Re: Renault Scenic Break Cables

I have just had a cable made by cablecraft in Dublin (email Tony or John on ). They need the old cable and turned mine around the day they recieved it - cost circa 75 (Euros 90) for replacement and shipping. Fitted it last week and everything is now fine.

ps. this was for the drivers side cable only for a Grand Scenic II
