Fixing the screeching in the broken hand brake Sign In

Lada 1200 made in 1986, 1198 cubic cm engine
Dear comrades, I've pulled the handbrake and torn the central cord. Now I desire first to unsettle the vehicle from the handbrake, but can't do that. I tried to push the hind cord into the sheathes but doesn't seem to work. What would you proffer.
Thanks in advance

Sorry, this site is based in the US and we don't have any info on that car.

Thanks, but that will do for any other car. It has hand brake system quite similar to that, say, of ford focus or something. I'd aprreciate the general infornation on this particular issue. Thanks

I don't know what you expect me to tell you. You have to cut away cables that are frozen until you can release the brakes.

Understood. Thanks. In order to do so, though, do I have to unscrew the cables from the drums, or will it suffice to merely cut them near the drums

What to do with cables used anywhere for anything you also need to know just how to either cut, undo plus what might be spring loaded in this case inside drums of brakes or broken parts that may only allow you do remove a drum to fix this thing up so it can be used again at all.


This is very general about cable operated anything. I suggest first knowing what items and parts are available and quickly AND the tools to do it.
Good luck with all of it. Not sold here as already said is barely the point cables are used in tons of assorted things only with vehicles that much more dangerous to be wrong in how repaired,

Thanks, mate. I'm afeard I'm going to be compelled, as you say, to disassemble the wheels at least to where I can reach the drums. The regretable thing is that I'm afraid I'll have to drive with the screeching brakes for a while, honing and heating thus the drum. I have some urgent things to do

It's a vehicle to use on roads make this an emergency. A "hand brake" frequently is incorporated into the regular brake such that parts all bust to repair. Doing nothing with it stuck now may or may not last and leave you with ZERO brakes which I can't know as just taking this apart will probably bust parts,

True, mate, but unfortunately I can't really solve this question yet, indeed. It only remains for me to hope that the thing won't hone away completely till I'm able to fix it. It only remains to hope for the brakes on the front wheels. Thanks for caring

Re: Fixing the screeching in the broken hand brake Sign In

One more and we should be done. The fix should just be hardware of cable sometimes sold universal is a pest to measure and adjust or is for me. Damage is probably already a given so search out rear brake parts, shoes, drums and hardware plus wheel cylinders now so you know.
OK this and all cars even non US sped models do use a dual system so if one totally fails the other will work. It should but is terribly weak if by surprise almost useless.


Once a hand brake (AKA EMERGENCY BRAKE) also called a PARKING brake would bail you out. Problem is THAT'S THE PROBLEM! Follow me?


It's old isn't always so much the trouble parts can be cloned and made to work in short order if popular types and parts possible for use in many vehicles or machines.
I'm doing the worrying for you but doesn't mean relax. Find out the worst case of damage what you'll do to get out of it and how long it will take.


You may need all the stuff mentioned I wont bother now that a wheel cylinder mean the brake line must come out without busting or I wouldn't be making you day!
It's old is both good and bad things should be easier for some things,

Thank you very much, mate. Anyhow, I think I'll do it today. Thanks. That's a great cat you have on the picture, by the way

Find your parts. Also find right tools if quickly available. If you need to cut cable the stuff is nasty otherwise a hardware exercise. "Measure twice, cut once" an old saying if you have to make them up,
