Duplicating this post from Miata.net.... Does anyone have experience installing these?
Fronts are on, no trouble. Rears are on and working except for the parking brake cable.
The replacement cables don't seem to be long enough. The other thing that really seems odd to me is that Wilwood specifically indicates that the driver's side cable is the longer of the two, but the OEM parts were the opposite.
The install is being done by Gran Turismo East in ATL... these guys have always been extremely knowledgeable and professional... so I have no reason the think this is just a case of operator error.
Gran Turismo has already emailed Wilwood about this; no response yet. I thought I would see if anyone here has ideas?
"I am having trouble with the parking brake cables on a 2013 Mazda Miata. The Wilwood cables that we have are about 55" and 63". The instructions clearly say that the driver's side cable is longer but when we pulled the factory cables off of the car, the passenger's side was the longer side. Even still we are also having issues with the clevis that connects the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever arm. I am measuring .150" gap on the parking brake caliper lever arm. The factory PB cable is .170" thick and the Wilwood cables are .190" thick, on the clevis.
The other end of the cables is also incorrect for the car. The cylindrical side that attaches to the balance bar is .312" diameter on the Wilwood cable but the factory end is .387"
