had mot today guy said one side is holding more than the other but it still passed but when i do the pads maybe a month to 3 months time i think iwant to sort this problem im guessing i need to lube the cable? i was told about this and have read about this but not sure exactly where and what to lube i know how to do the job so dont need to tell me but a pic would be handy with arrows lol.

TIA

I got both rear cables replaced as Fraud told me that they couldn't be repaired/released. Because I didn't do it myself i don't really know where you could lubricate them but I'll definitely be interested in how you get on. :L
If you are doing the brakes I'd recommend you take the time to give the calipers a good free-up. Don't forget about the handbrake lever on the back of the caliper as well. It failed on me after I got the cables replaced. So I went from having a handbrake that wouldn't release on the n/s to one that doesn't hold at all on the n/s. :mad:

well my cables have had the TSB done on them before i got it, for those of you who dont know this was because the handbrake was too high and wasnt holding properly, the car passed the mot as i said but one side isnt holding as good as the other so i suspect the cable is sticking so it should only need lubricated.

why don't you check first if all the clipses holding the cable are in place?
