    Help please folks. Rear brake drum running red hot.
    I've stripped it down and believe the root cause to be a sticking handbrake cable.
    1. Is it a simple job to replace the cable? is it worth replacing both cables at the same time?
    2. I found the self adjuster ratchet to be loose (see photos ), should there be a spring holding it in? WP_20170719_001[1].jpg WP_20170719_003[1].jpg

    The flush screw needs to be taken out, but there are also two threaded holes. Pick two bolts with the correct thread and progressively screw them in, and the drum will ease off.
