Hi,

Wanted to know if there are any instructions anywhere regarding how to fit the JCW hand brake to an R53?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Chris.

If it's any help.....i was a reluctant to use the adhesive on my handbrake. After speaking with Mike and NewMiniStuff...he advised that after removing the hand brake grip, place some tape around the gear lever to thicken it up. When you push the JCW hand brake grip on it then holds really well.

Hope that helps anyone.

Hi, I have just bought JCW Handbrake. And after dismanteling old hanbrake I canot seem to fit over the black plastic sleeve. The JCW doesn`t come apart to fit over this sleeve?

Does the sleeve have to stay off and tape over the metal part of the Handbrake instead? to fit JCW one. Or is it possible to undo the JCW Handbrake as you do with OEM one?

Much appreciated for any replies :)
