my mechanical (dis)abilities are exposed... I can't get the handbrake cable off my caliper. It's a granada caliper and the seals have gone, it is depositing fluid all around it! I have also discovered that seal kits are the same price as a recon caliper! Trouble I have is I can't get the ****** thing off.:-( Sliding bolts are undone, but cant get the hook off the cable.
Any tips? pleeease

Have you slackened it off at the handbrake lever and removed the cable from the equaliser?
It should then be possible to unhook the inner cable from the calliper levers.

I haven't. I'll try slackening it from the handbrake lever tomorrow:thumb: hunger prevents further attempts tonight
