VW GTI emergency brake cable. Emergency brake cables run from the handbrake lever to each rear brake and are an essential part of the cable operated system that secures your VW GTI or GLI while parking, or in case your hydraulic system fails. It's best to replace them both at the same time as they deteriorate with use. Sold each, order two of these per vehicle to complete the job. Measures 1800mm/70.9". For calipers with 7mm bleed valve. Please check your cables- some of these vehicles use a shorter cable - if your measure 1613 mm (63 1/2 inches) long order part number 14110.
The GTI, and GLI emergency brake cable can be changed on its own, but it still relies on the rest of your rear brakes to be working well. If you can't remember when you last inspected the brake components now is the best time, you will have most of it apart anyway.
