Post Spyder handbrake
Lost a lot of efficiency on the Spyders handbrake. Suddenly a lot of. Extra pull on the handbrake and very poor grip ? New cables needed and if so are they a donor item or are they unique. Haven't got underneath yet but will have to have a look this weekend .

Any ideas as to what to check before I strip out the cables as want to be out driving in this weather not mending

What rear calipers do you have? The HB cables were bespoke AFAIK, but I doubt it's a cable problem.

Look like standard Rover calipers to me. Might need to bite the bullet as I have heard that they are prone to handbrake issues.
