Handbrake Cable Removal - Rear Drums

Hi,

Iím in the process of dismantling the rear subframe assembly but have run into a problem detaching the handbrake cable from inside the rear drums.

I have unclipped the metal collar that was on the shaft but this doesnít seem to help the situation. This fixing must come free to allow the cable to be pulled through the holes in the subframe.

Basicaly im stuck Can anyone help? Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Rescued attachment pic1.jpg

The cable shroud seems in good condition and the cable is shiny and not worn so I donít want to cut it really.

I have already stuck a big screw driver on it and belted it with a small hammer, so next up is the BIG hammer or maybe a big rock.

I just needed to know it wasnít some weird clip before I started belting it too hard.

Cheers guys i'll let you know if it works

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHH, I just got my thumb with the big hammer - bloody hurts.

Anyway no pain no gain, the big hammer shifted it , it was indeed just rusty. The screwdriver has made quite a groove where the cable goes in but think it will be OK

I did have a look when I got home!! honest!
Seem I missed the boat here.
Mine was less corroded and came out with a little leverage from a larger screwdriver - the other side had a collar with flared out barbs - this side was removed by pressing the barbs in with the large screwdriver. Both were a piece of cake to remove - HTH
