Has anyone attempted this repair yet? Last winter my parking brakes started locking once the temp was below freezing. SO I spent most of the winter without ebrakes. Once spring came so did the ebrakes and I've been able to set them ever since. Last night it got very cold and they locked up again. So now I'm frustrated and want to repair them.

Repacing the cables on my '83 GTI was a 15 minute repair. Is there any place to get the cables besides the dealer?

TIA,

Tom

Had mine replaced last January under warranty...


Could try Impex or the other "usual" VW online shops:
World Impex
