    Default caliper & handbrake cable

    hi

    just bought some 292mm calipers from scrappy.

    removed old cable ok but seems there is a black gromit through which the cable passes as it goes through the caliper and on to the attachement point.

    Is this gromit supposed to be removed before fitting a new handbrake cable or does the cable kit contain the new gromit.


    and how can i remove old gromit....

    several beers and worried about taking heavy tools to caliper to remove this part


    many thanks

    mike

    spray some WD40 on area where grommet passes thru the fixing point on the caliper. using a pipe wrench or pliers firmly hold the grommet and turn to allow the WD40 to penetrate and then pull the grommet and cable out and away from the fixing point.
