When doing my handbrake cable, shoes etc and drums today didnt realise that the later Sei's just had two 13mm locknuts that hold a cable guide to the threaded rod from the handbrake lever. Have got pics if you want to extend the handbrake guide Pete. :)

Please can somone add to this to the Seicento MPI Fuel Tank change.
'If your are doing this on a Sporting, you will need to unbolt & remove the exhuast from the join & remove 3 Exhaust Donuts.
1st at the Lefthand side of the Tailpipe,
2nd at the Back of the Backbox near the Back Axle (Between the 2 Rear Arms),
And the 3rd halfway between the Join & the back of the exhaust.'

I only know this as I've found theese problems earlier today when trying to remove to exhuast so I could get neaer to the bolts on the Petrol Tank, I've had to cut the Rubber donuts off with my hacksaw as when I pushed the dount with a screw driver, the screwdriver ended up getting bent :lol: Started the project on Monday, Tank's getting removed tomorrow after nipping up to a scrappie to get bits!!

Maybe worth noting that the last of the line Cinquecento's also have this set up, noticed it last weekend whilst doing the exhaust on richard Cinquecento.
