Does anyone have pictures or a diagram of the parking brake cable mounting locations for an Elite? I have the cables on the car, but they are floppy. I feel like there may be mounting brackets missing or similar. Any help welcome on this, as I need to get it working as my driveway slopes!
Thanks,
Iain.

I can try and get you one in a day or two when I have some time to search and scan the image (unless someone else posts something first).  If you have a factory service manual, I think it might be in there.  If you don't have the factory service manual, I'd recommend purchasing one.

Thanks for that. No rush if you can find anything. All I have is the Haynes manual, which is a bit useless for some things - especially this!
Factory manuals always the best I've found previously.

I wound the most obvious adjustment nut I could find, which seems to have improved matters. Will give it some more though.

Is one press of the foot lever usually correct, or one and a bit? 
Don't know what is normal, as am used to hand operated cars. 
Thanks, 
Iain.

if it's holding tight and about only half way to the floor you're good
