Default 2003 LW-200 rear drum brakes parking brake cable

I have had a problem and it seems, a solution that has actually worked! 2003 LW-200 - so rear brakes are drums. The short parking brake cable, that goes into the drum assembly, broke, and it was discontinued, from the searching that the Midas shop had done, and then the searching that I had done - also came up empty. So I used Google translate to figure out parking brake cable for drum brake, for an Opel Vectra B, and looked on Ebay's German site, and saw some entries woth pictures, and from there, on to Ebay's UK site, and I found a cable that looked the same, and today I have my car back, with the parking brakes working normally again. This short cable from the Vectra "B" with drum brakes worked on my LW200. The brand name was "Keep Driving" and the part # is 33115-92.11.5939. The description is Opel Vectra 2.0 rear drum brakes. The cost was 6.95 pounds & 6 pounds shipping, so < $25 fixed what would have been a very annoying problem to ignore. Maybe this will help someone else.

Great info, thanks. I had the same problem and was able to find some on ebay (add the following path to ebay, not enough posts yet to post urls...):

Glad you found something - "discontinued" will become more common over time as we need parts, so handy that some of them can be interchanged with Opel parts.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
