W209 CLK240 parking brake adjustment

Bit more good luck. Took the car to the garage next door for them to potentially overhaul the parking brake. Turns out someone had already been in there, everything fairly new but just the star adjuster was jammed tight with the shoes off the hub. Released, adjusted, lubed and good to go. Might buy a lottery ticket.

Not the cable then . Good news 😁.
 
Great result , as you now know this can be a big job.

Does make you wonder what kind of muppet assembles the star adjuster without putting suitable lube in the turn barrel ? The kit I used even had a small sachet of it included .
 
Luck didn't hold. Four lines on the Euromillions and not a penny.
