Handbrake Cable Group Orders

Evening all,

Here are all the group order relevant posts from Steve handbrake cable thread. This has been provided to maintain the flow of the original thread whilst we all add our interest here for Rick @Rickmeister to selflessly supply us with what we desire.

I'll build the lists later on this evening. Of note, I'm here just conducting assistance as this is a Rick's and Ian's @in9999 venture. Rick is going to send the order to Ian, who will distribute to everyone here in the UK.

Whilst the registered interest is extracted to build the lists, I'll also try to tidy it up without ruining the flow of this new thread.

Have a great evening/weekend everyone.

It seems still available in Audi Tradition though, for 53.20 Euro.
Nevertheless, good idea to investigate for replacement possibilities.
 
Agree with the previous two posts. I think the broken part in Steve's photo runs to one side of the car. That one relatively easy to replace with stainless steel cable and swaged fittings. But a longer cable runs from the handbrake through the guide tube to the other side. The arrangement equalises force applied to the pair of brakes. That tubed part and cable would be more complicated to replicate because it looks like the teminals etc are swaged-on with the cable already through the tube. Probably doable. It would be a brave person who would improvise a braking component... The entire assembly is listed on Audi Tradition for 53 euro plus delivery. Helpful photo of the piece in the link below. atb

So that looks great that Audi Tradition have the handbrake cable, brilliant!

A stumbling block when you try to order and select the delivery address, the UK does not appear on the drop down menu...

I checked again then saw this note at the bottom of the home page:

Due to the Brexit, we are currently unable to sell goods to the UK (including Northern Ireland). Our systems are not able to handle different tax rates within the same country (UK).
Please be aware that placed orders with a UK address but a different chosen destination country will be cancelled by us.
We are already looking for a solution to this problem, but this will take some time. Thank you for your understanding.

Yes but member @Rickmeister is helpfully taking orders and then sending them to us in the U.K. A very valued service to the club at the moment.

Just replied to a PM as a result of this thread.

Happy to help but as a follow on from another request earlier, please help me to help you. I'm not connected to Audi or in the motor trade so if it's from AT, please do your research and help with part numbers... I say this as a polite request as I have had a couple of "can you find me xyz on Audi Tradition please"

Hi Rick,
as you are now aware of this thread and without being presumptuous could we arrange a group order (similar to the Volico paint arrangement). I would certainly like to purchase one of these cables as I am sure would a few other members (dependent on stock levels)
I am happy to volunteer distribution from this end if there is enough interest but as always we are in your hands from the AT side.

Regards

Ian

I would also be interested in joining any group buy please, having recently encountered a fellow A2 owners desperation at MOT time.

Evening folks, I'm following again and as per Volico, a group buy could be on the cards again, especially with the offer of a single point of contact in the UK. I am already receiving pm's with requests so there looks like an interest.

Suggestion based on this comment above: Looks like they're common across the range Andy - from looking at 7zap.
Has it been ascertained whether another UK model has the same system? Lupo, Polo, Fox, Up, Mii etc etc?

So
If we go to a group buy, would a member be willing to set up the in-forum list again? I know it's not as complicated as the paint with name/colour/number of tins but it would help. Also at this stage, I don't know from AT how many are in stock. I guess I could try and order 10 and report back...
For a group buy I suggest its pretty clear there is a need so close requests by Saturday, I order Monday, goods with me Wednesday and posted on to arrive (tracked/insured as post is split and its quicker) UK the following Wednesday at a guess.

Comments, please?

Well, I typed in 10 and went through to checkout without a problem.

I can get 10 shipped to me in Germany for €6.50 so less than a Euro for postage each plus I guess €15 ish or €1.50 each onward t the UK.

Evening,

Could I be added to the list also please. 2 of what’s on offer if that’s ok, growing fleet!

Just edited your list and it seems that you have 9 cables spoken for. That was quick.

Happy to jump in and assist if you want.

Rick @Rickmeister may I extend our thanks to you for these brilliant opportunities that are just out of our grasp right now.

Kind regards,

Tom

I'd better have one too - but happy to wait for a second order since it looks like you've got 10 already, @scimmyowner wanted two but is only marked up for one.
Ian,

I’ve just jumped in and recounted. You’re on the list list Sir. My meddling added someone twice.

Kind regards,

Tom
