Post by Graham914 » Fri Jun 28, 2019 7:37 pm

Hi
Im looking for a handbrake adjuster for my scimitar coupe, standard one i guess may be same.

I need the assembly that hooks to the bottom of handbrake through to the wheel that hooks onto tne cable.

Thanks Graham

my coupe and my early 5 had the handbrake connector on the top, only way to adjust was drill extra holes and move the wheel. I fitted the the one on the bottom to both with no issues, I can sell on the bottom one if that is what you are looking for. PM me inf interested

Hi
That looks like it should work.
What price do you have in mind.
Thanks Graham

If Geraint doesn’t have one, get an alloy wheel (like the one on the early connector) to replace the plastic one, from Graham Walkers.

I replaced the eyelet end with a stainless one from a boat company, and the other end with a stainless bolt. much easier to adjust after a years use. no corrosion .

My Coupe has the top connector without any adjustment so perhaps they were late Coupe/early SE5.

There is plenty of cable adjustment at the rear brakes and it's easily accessible :wink: .
