    Default Handbrake Question

    I've recently replaced my Handbrake cable.

    However it's only led to a query for you Vectra C/Signum boffins.

    After I took out the rear Centre console to secure the handbrake spring with the "transport fixing pin" I was curious about the small black bracket and screw towards the rear of the car (circled in yellow in the following picture).



    What is it for? Can't find any reference to it on TIS and it's part of the Handbrake assembly on EPC?

    Anyone know?

    I may be wrong... isn't this to take up some adjustment in terms of how high the handbrake lifts.

    Had a play with mine and it didnt really seem to make much difference as it doesnt act on the cable itself.

    As above. I had a play with my old handbrake when I took it out of the car and the 2 screws/bolts in the circle in the picture above don't really seem to do anything, which is presumably why neither Vauxhall or Haynes make any mention of them.
