I was having an issue with the offside rear caliper not locking out fully. I tried adjustment but could see the cable was much looser than the nearside. The cable adjuster was tilted more towards the nearside indicating that it was pulling tighter than the offside. I disconnected both cables to make sure they were free and the same length which they definitely appear to be. So I purchased a new offside brake caliper and fitted it. After adjusting the handbrake cable it held brilliantly for the first few days. But it gradually started to come up higher and higher and I could tell it was only acting on the nearside again. After a further adjustment it worked again for a few days but now I am back where I was in the beginning? Any ideas because this is driving me crazy!
