Re: Handbrake Issue MK3 replacement parts

Hey - totally not an expert but as far as I know, the cables SHOULD be different lengths and although they are expensive it is worthwhile to get genuine toyota ones as the other brands have not got a great reputation for lasting very long. There is a wealth of info over on MR2ROC about the specifics...

Re: Hard top side catches

Open the catch, then take a small spanner and adjust the hexagonal thing inside. That will tighten it up!
