Title: MK2 left/right e-brake cable compatibility?
Post by: Skeeter on 07:20:40 AM / 25-Jan-17
Well, the plastic sheath inside of my e-brake cables are falling apart and the cable itself is corroding internally, making them stick and drag my rear brakes. Does anyone know if there is another model that shares a similar cable design that will work?

I believe they are still available at Rockauto. I have replaced at least two of mine so far

The right one is like $23, but the left one is out of stock. I've found the left one for like $55 on Amazon, but I was hoping there was an alternative.

^Most likely, haha. Do the Z31 cables have a different hammer (the part that attaches in the caliper lever)?
