Post Handbrake cable lubrication
The handbrake cables on my car are pretty substantial affairs that look as if they'd be more at home supporting a suspension bridge :mrgreen: and have grease nipples half way along their length. The inner cables are a bit stiff and I plan to grease them before they are refitted but I have seen cables being oiled as well using an oil gun that fits on to the grease nipple. So - what is the correct way to do these? I would imagine that grease would be longer lasting but I have been known to be wrong before (many times! :roll: ) and any info/opinions would be welcome.

My experience elsewhere has been that if you are going to grease something do it regularly or not at all. Otherwise it dries out.

That's what I was thinking then I thought about oil running out....
