Had not done on my 1303 but had seen on others German Lookers. I do installed a GTI handbrake lever/boot on mine. Pretty easy.

Hi

I ended up using the Beetle lever but I used all the 944 handbrake cables, it works much better than the steel 944 setup in my sons bug.

It will actually pull the car up from speed unlike my sons 1303 which holds OK on hills but has no affect when pulled on at speed.

Steve
