turbo daily 35-10 handbrake; handbrake linkage

Hi all, van failed mot today due to no effective handbrake on nearside rear. Just been underneath to find that the handbrake cable from the central pulley wheel/adjuster to the small brake drum inside the disc hub is hanging out and not inserted into the drum at all. The pin or whatever that attaches the cable to the actuating mechanism inside the drum has become disconnected and left the handbrake cable just dangling there.

So the big question is, can i reconnect the cable without removing the disc hub assembly. looking in the manual it seems that I would need a special socket to remove the large nut holding the hub on the shaft. Can i manage without this special and presumably very expensive Iveco socket tool?

All booked to go away to France on Monday morning so any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,
had a similar thing yesterday. Got home, pulled on the handbrake and nothing? Had a look this morning and the wire cable that loops around the wheel was slack as a Yack.
I removed the lower inspection rubbers and the cable had come off the hook inside the nearside drum. I slackened the rod adjuster to give more play and used a long hook that was originally for stretching exhaust springs. Hooked up the cable pulled it back until I could reattach it, adjusted the handbrake as per the manual and now works perfectly (For now).

Hope this helps
