Land Rover Repair/Discovery1


Good day to you
Can you assist me with a discovery 1 hand break I dont know where to adjust the hand break or where the cable runs.
If possible do you have a drawing.
Thank you
Best regards

Hi Henry,

the Disco series 1 hand brake is cable attached to an old style drum braking system on the tranny under the vehicle.  Discovery, Defender and Series share this method I believe.

Here's a very good video to help you:

Best video for the repair!

Best of luck,

Land Rover Discovery. I've had most of the common mechanical failures, altenator, water leaks, wiper failure, door/hinge problems, roof rust, floor rust, loads of electrical problems. Remember, I'm not a dealer or a mechanic, just an owner like most of you.


Owner of a Discovery. I've had many mishaps with our Disco but I still like this vehicle. Talk to a fellow LR owner instead of a dealership rep. I'm not in this for the money. I'm just an owner who wants to help others.
