It is strange some people have problems with these, while others seem fine for 200K + miles. :confused:

I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

Hi John
I think it stems from when the car is new and poor servicing many people think just adjust the handbreak at the handbreak end nut not the breake shoes by the knurled nut on each wheel thus keepign the 25mm on the thread, then the next person as the car needs to pull the handbreak even more to get the desired hold and so on. this mod should put a stop to that do you have some spare ones :confused: it's all here in this link below

Definitely a mod to keep in mind, should mine ever need doing. Well done for persisting, looks like it will sort quite a few people with the problem. :)

I'm certainly interested in this, just to show that it has got interest here. Maybe at a Nano-meet? 8-)

But sa-la-ve, what's that?
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.
