ABOUT US

X8R Ltd is a British company completely dedicated to providing high quality improved design vehicle components; correcting original manufacturers design faults. We take the common faults associated with a variety of vehicle manufacturer’s parts and re-design and manufacture parts that will not fail again or that will prevent damage to vehicles.

SYMPTOMS OF FAULT

Handbrake lever stuck and won’t release, release button presses but won’t free up lever, handbrake jammed upright.

THE FAULT
galaxy handbrake release stuck jammedgalaxy handbrake release lever snapped cable
The handbrake lever fails to release when pressing the button

It is a common fault on these vehicles for the handbrake release button to fail so that the handbrake lever cannot be released. The usual symptom of this is that the release button can be pushed but the lever does not release.

This is due to a cable snapping within this handbrake lever mechanism.  A thin cable runs from the spring-loaded button to a ratchet on the mechanism to release the lever, this cable is too thin for the application and operates around a tight bend. Inevitably the cable wears in this location and snaps.

Until now the only solution was to replace the whole mechanism, this is very expensive and will ultimately have the same design cable.

We have seen other sellers offer a cable the exact same as the OEM part. The OEM part is fed in place then a special tool is used to create the stop end. These OEM copy cables are extremely difficult to fit as they have the stop end preinstalled so the cable cannot be fed. We’ve never successfully installed one.

THE SOLUTION

Install our improved deign cable and restore release of the handbrake

Our improved design stainless steel cable can be installed to repair the release function with no need to replace the whole handbrake lever mechanism at vast expense.

Unlike the OEM copy cables which are near impossible to fit our part is designed to be easily fed in the lever mechanism, install once the lever is off the vehicle is very simple please check out our video instructions.

Our part is a completely new design, improved in design to make replacing the broken cable far easier than ever before.  Our cable is a thicker wound stainless-steel cable. This feeds through the mechanism in to our precision CNC machined stop end part allowing the replacement cable to be easily installed restoring full function of the handbrake lever.
