The use of electric handbrake systems has risen in popularity as more vehicle manufacturers favour them over lever-operated equivalents for better driver comfort, convenience and safety. However, despite this increase in popularity for these systems, replacement brake cables are still quite hard to find in the independent aftermarket.
Traditionally considered a ‘dealer-only’ part, First Line has identified premium quality cables for electric handbrake systems as an additional profit opportunity for motor factors. With an initial introduction of two cables (FKB6002 and FKB6003) for the popular Vauxhall Astra J 2.0 (2011-2015), more cables catering for a wider range of applications are expected to be introduced shortly.
First line also offers one of the most comprehensive ranges of brake, clutch, accelerator, speedometer and gear control cables in the aftermarket. To help factors and installers accurately identify cable references, First Line has unique technical layout drawings in the various cataloguing solutions available for use.
All First Line cables are manufactured to the highest standard and undergo rigorous testing to ensure optimum quality, reliability and longevity. For peace of mind, all cables by First Line are equipped with a 2-year/24,000-mile warranty.
FPS has more than 2,500 First Line cables in stock which can be found on MAM Autocat and the F:Drive. Available via same/next-day delivery, please speak with your local FPS representative for more information.
