Davie, I believe your handbrake cable may have arrived... I have a parcel to pick up from the Post Office...

And still not heard anything!!!

Davie, your handbrake cable is here... I called into the delivery office on my way home from work on the bike... I was grateful the firm packed the cable into a smallish jiffy bag so it fitted in my rucksack but I do have a complaint...

Riding home from the delivery office (only about a mile and a half from home) I got caught in a shower of rain :evil: Had I not had to have gone and collected it and had the original cable been the right one I'd have not got wet this afternoon :twisted: :lol:

Think yourself lucky, Jim! I was going back to the van with the faulty part I had swapped out when I got attacked by hailstones! :twisted:

Gosh, we are having some funny old weather... It's been mostly OK up here today and sunny for a big part of the day... That storm that got me was a real isolated one....

It was snowing (for about 20 minutes) in Reading on Wednesday!

Been reading this with much interest. Not that it requires doing (yet?) but is the S2 HDI clutch as difficult? Does the box have to come out? I assumed it would have to....

Harry, if your HDi is a 110 then the procedure is exactly the same as for the Activa... If it's a 90 then it's as per the 1.9TD and the clutch job on that is documented by me in another thread in great detail...

Yes, the 'box needs out as I found. I tried to do it with just moving it to one side but I failed...

Sounds like it's worth doing the handbrake cables when doing a clutch job, for ease of access and the cable cost isn't too bad.
