    Default Handbrake cables.

    Anyone know of a supplier of all 3 handbrake cables in the UK?

    I think i've found part numbers for the QH replacements, but not 100% sure.

    I am glad you have raised this as I have been thinking about it.

    If you have found them then great but I have ordered them from a motor factors catalogue too but was given a set of normal 155 cables.
    I would think they are very likely to be unique to the Q4 but I have not checked out the Integrale setup.

    I have been wondering, would a normal 155 set of cables work if they were kept away from the prop?
    The setup of the long cable around a pulley seems overly complex for my liking.

    I checked on the TRW site and it gives the same part number for a Q4 as it does the V6.

    Does the QH part number for the Q4 differ from a V6 or Twinny?

    These are the QH numbers and corresponding Alfa part numbers, can't seem to get into a working EPER at the moment so can't see if the Alfa Numbers are correct.

    Rear left cable; QH BC2512; Alfa 60812546
    Rear right Cable; QH BC2707; Alfa 60806310
    Centre cable; QH BC2781; Fiat(!) 60806293

    Can anyone confirm the Alfa part numbers?

    Well, just had it confirmed that those parts won't fit, the Alfa part numbers are completely wrong. Just looking at a couple of other suppliers now.

    Well they always say that nothing worth doing is easy.

    So....as nothing is easy, any thoughts on connecting a normal 155 cable up - would it badly fowl the prop?

    I've just heard back from the garage, and apparently they have managed to find the Rear-left and rear-right cables.

    They found out from cross referencing the old Alfa part number that they are shared with the Dedra Integrale, thats Dedra not Delta, and also a Fiat Tempra. They are winging their way to the garage now, so when they arrive, and IF they fit I'll get the details of them and let you all know where they came from.

    Fingers crosses.

    @colibry

    thanks for the offer, we might have found a solution already but if not, and if the company you mention could make new cables, that might be an option worth looking at.

    Thanks
