For Sale/Exchange.
I have the stainless steel handbrake modified compensator this will not stretch and is very reliable, it will give your car the handbrake it deserves.

This is a sale/exchange as i will need your old compensator back once you have fitted the stainless steel modified compensator, it would be very helpful if this could be finalised within a ten day period of you receiving the part.

The cost of this part and service is £23.70 including P&P i will also include a return slip and a label with my full name and address which you can use to return your old compensator back to me.

If you wish to obtain the Stainless Steel Modified Compensator for your car please send me a PM and i will forward the necessary details on to you, they are posted out either the same day or the next morning to you with a returns slip and a label with my address on, once received and fitted please return your old compensator back to me this is most appreciated.

Also new members who would like the stainless steel compensator I must ask that you have at least posted 50 times with good justified posts, ie tech questions and or answers on the club.

The theory being that if you are willing to post good questions and or answers you are less likely not to return the old compensator to me after fitting the SSC, this seems to work so I will leave it in place.

Also please take on board that I like a 7 to 10 day turn round on these from the day you receive the modified compensator.

The cost of a new compensator from Rimmer Bros is £15.25 with VAT and postal costs which are no longer available from them,and would only stretch again over time and you will be back to square one.

Please only purchase if you can and intend to return the old compensator as i am not asking for a deposit but going on your trust as a member of this club.

Once you have emailed me i will email you back with the PayPal details i will accept cheques but you must understand i can not post out until the cheque as passed, you can also pay by postal order.

PS if you find it maybe hard to keep to the ten day turnround please email me and let me know so we can work something out together, i will also send an how to fit with the email or you can click the link below.

Kind Regards
Arctic.

Hi Anthony / Jon.
I have picked up your messages after Mick sent me a PM cheers Mick :hail:

Do not for any reason pay that sort of money to have an handbrake compensator fitted when you could do this job your self, or if you came to mine i could do it for you, i have sent you both an email and PM cheers Arctic

Thanks Arctic, job done, car will not move after three clicks. Serious carpet wrestling needed to do this but once I was prepared to get rough with it all went well. Post Office in the morning to return old compensator to you, thanks again Alex.......

Hi Alex
Glad to hear you now have a good handbrake, yes those carpets can be trouble if you let them tow pieces of wood will help if you are doing the job on your own, i received your old compensator back Saturday cheers Arctic
