Been going through many broken stuff on my R this week and got to replace both parking brake cables and hardware and I was puzzled as to how the plastic T tab on the cable is supposed to be secured. The previous owner definitively tried to fix the parking brake but did not do a good job of it, replacing only one cable and not routing it properly...
So not knowing where the tabs go, I searched the forum and found a great photo to better explain my problem (thanks to neonshaun). The tab is located where I expected it, but when I look at the mounting hole on my R there is no thread or anything, just an empty plastic hole. I tried screwing a M8 and M10 bolt, both too small and didn't catch any hidden thread. Does anyone know if an insert is supposed to be there or I need an M12 and a tap? How do I secure that tab on the car? Also just to be sure, the parking cable goes in front (towards the front of the car) of the link kit?
Here is the picture of what I mean:
