How to change brake cables

  • Firstly, go to the compensator and undo the two 13mm nuts that are holding the brake cable to the compensator. One is a ball nut and one is a lock nut; simply snap them apart and wind them loose.
  • Next, release the cable from the anchor bracket which is attached to the axle. Normally a 10mm nut which is removed via a 17mm spanner.
  • Underneath, at the back plate of the trailer, there is a cup, pull that backwards, which will release the cup off the half shells. Those half shells will then fall apart. Then, simply release the inner cable from the eyelet.
  • That will then enable you to remove the cable and fit a new one.
