VW Golf MK2 - Replacing Handbrake Cable on Car with Rear Discs

When doing various bits of work on my Golf MK2 I'd spotted that the handbrake cable on one side was corroded and looking in need of replacement. While collecting the brake discs and pads from Eurocarparts I also picked up a new handbrake cable to fit.

The old cable was still functioning but may well have been an MOT fail soon or stopped working once the rust had affected the cable inside.

The cable was easy to replace. With the vehicle jacked up and the rear wheel removed the retainer could be unclipped. The cable inside the car can then be unbolted from the handbrake lever and fed back through. I found it easier to remove the drivers seat to give better access to the handbrake and the new cable being pushed through.
