Around here we have many rural thoroughfare B roads designed by the Romans, they tend to be erm, straight. We also have our share of single-lane winding lanes with passing places and other holes in the hedgerow designed by cattle (lane = cow-path).
They are not the same are they.

or this one, also Merikan...
Not getting picky but in post#5 I said, "It is the rear cable that has broken".
My investigations at hanging upsidedown like a bat in the footwell indicated that access to the cables is not through the console at all.
I've been known to use copper fungicide (algae is related)
But the toothbrush or similar is a must, they make excellent "detailing" brushes and they are very cheap. Do try using one with some warm water and car wash or soap.
(I have not seen one of those Megs Triple Brushes for a while, orders...
What vacuum road brush? (rofl)
They've just completely resurfaced a road near here before fixing the drainage problem that is now sending a bourne across the road on the Z-bend and down the hill to the stream, it is supposed to be in its culvert. It's an old lane that follows a stream bed...
Forgive me but you may need to re-write that.
You have "moss" growing from inside a rubber seal to some glass on the car?
It is more likely to be algae than actual moss, although I have seen real moss growing on cars.
Do try a toothbrush and a bucket of suds (car wash detergent and warm water).
Hmm... I've always been fond of Michelin before switching to Falken solely due to cost, but I shall be considering the Goodyear Eagle F1 in future.
There is a number on the tyres that none of them brag about, the tread wear number, the bigger it is the longer they last, allegedly. Do enquire...
There again I got 335k out of my Volvo245 running it on full syth. Engine was as sweet as a nut when it was written off by a big lorry whilst it was parked. Rest of car was a bit past its use-by.
Imo Mobil 1 will preserve the engine for far longer than a conventional oil. Mobil 1 New Life meets...
Eh? -what car is this? Remove the console?
On the S210 it looks pretty much like the entire front mechanism is exposed simply by dropping the driver's footwell cover, a couple of screws and Oddie nuts.
But surely the front cable is the release mechanism? It is the rear cable that has broken...
Interesting linky, but it reckons the Michelin PS2 has better wear than the Falken ZE912, better grip yes but IME worse wear rate. This would be borne out by the treadware numbers on the sidewalls. My PS2s got chewed up in about a year.
