    its got to be said... Cali handbrake for the win

    One of the best mods so far is the Grand California handbrake. You lift it up then let go and it drops to the floor while still being engaged. Allows you to swivel the seat so much easier. Yes yes, I know all you posh gits with dsg can just put it in Park but for those without this is a game...

    I have been very foolish. I was removing the bulkhead retainers in a van with a floor already fitted so I needed to go from the cab side, and the angle grinder nicked the handbrake cable where it enters the van. It's holding, but is there anyway of testing the cable to know if it's good/needs...

    Fitted swivel seats today but ran out of adjustment on the handbrake when lowered. Has anyone solved this with a spacer and if so can point me in the direction of an appropriate part?

    Handbrake too low.

    Stupid question but, Is there anyway the handbrake could be made higher, my wife drives our T6 but she has to lean over and down the side of the drivers seat to reach the handbrake. Shes only small and the drivers seat is at its lowest setting. Hill starts are hard for her. Thanks

    Afternoon all, I have a dsg I'm just converting, and it strikes me the handbrake isn't really necessary in a dsg? Can I not just leave it in 'P'? Had anyone got rid of their handbrake?
