Anyone Fitted A New Parking Brake/handbrake Cable?


Recommended Posts


On my latest LS400, (its the first of the mk2's) a 1995-> car..

The parking brake wont release back up when you pull the lever on the dash.

I had the car up on mates ramps yesterday, and both in the footwell and under the car, the cable is curved where it joins both the pedal mechanism and the splitter/adjuster under the rear seats under the car

It simply looks like someone has fitted a new cable, but the wrong one. Either that the old one is seriously stretched, as even with all the adjustment taken, it seems too long.

Has anyone had any experience with these? is it a problem with the adjuster not taking the cable back in..?

Handbrake works, but not great..
