:( Just had my Stilo JTD Mot tested today, went straight through (as it should at 4 years old and 31k) just one little niggle!! o/s/r handbrake cable chafing against metal brake pipe on rear axle about 4 inch outwards of support bracket! no damage done yet but might spell trouble in future. Anyone else come across this?
:idea:

Never saw this problem on mine Sid when i did the disc and pad change a while back but if its chafing try and gently pry the brake pipe over because sooner or later the inevertable will happen :eek: at least get hold of some type of tubing and cover the brake pipe (y)
