    Audi A4 2.5tdi Quattro - Handbrake cables

    Is there anywhere other than Audi where I can pick up new handbrake cables.
    I refuse to have them frozen on again.
    Atlas Grey A4 2.5 TDI Quattro Sport.
    Mods so far: Cruise control, DIS, Heated Mirrors, Tuning box, Xenonx, Centre Arm Rest, MFSW, RNS-E, SDS and Aero Wipers.
    To do: None yet.
    Next: Auto dip rearview mirror and Folding Mirrors.

    TPS? Euro Car Parts?

    When it's really cold I just park the car in gear and leave the handbrake off. I had the same problems on my Mk2 Golf several times... lesson learnt.

    Sure it's the cables that are causing the problems? Double-check the handbrake mechanism on the caliper too. A genuine Audi handbrake cable is £45 + VAT, money well spent in my opinion.
