    I had both handbrake cables replaced but they cant be reconnected to the handbrake because the handbrake has self-adjusted too far, and mechanic tells me i need to get a new handbrake lever now?

    Is there no way of resetting the old handbrake? I would have thought there was??

    Does anybody know how to or will I be able to get a secondhand handbrake lever to fix problem??
