This 2001-2006 Sprinter Van hand brake adapter is designed to lower your Sprinter hand brake by 1 inch, then your seat would not hit on the hand brake when turning it
The 2001-2006 Sprinter Van driver’s side installation requires reorienting the handbrake assembly and trimming the handbrake cover. It is easiest to do this without the 2001-2006 Sprinter Van seat and swivel installed. Remove the brake cable pin, figure 9 and the brake handle assembly access cover, figure 10.
Using a 13mm socket or wrench, remove the two mounting bolts, number 11 in the picture above.
Remove the handbrake cover, mark and trim as needed, figure 12. The picture shown shows the cut needed for a View/Navion installation. If the installation is for a passenger or cargo van, you will only need to trim about an inch or so to clear the fire extinguisher bracket. Reinstall the handbrake cover on to the handbrake assembly.
Using a 5mm Allen wrench or socket, install the 2 taper head bolts and relocation bracket, figure 13. The tapered end of the bracket points to the rear of the vehicle. If the bracket bolts do not align with the threaded holes in the factory bracket, you may need to drill out the tapered holes of the relocating bracket. Using the two factory 13mm bolts, install the handbrake assembly on to the relocating bracket installed in the prior step. A spacing washer may be needed if mount bolts bottom out against factory mount bracket. Be careful to avoid cross threading the factory mounting bolts. If the bolts will not thread, you may need to remove the handbrake assembly and die grind the handbrake assembly mounting holes to fit. Install brake cable pin and access cover.
After reorienting the handbrake assembly, you will need to adjust the brake cables. Release the handbrake.
Locate the 2001-2006 Sprinter Van handbrake adjustment assembly under the vehicle just in front of the rear axle, figure 14. Using a 13mm socket and short extension, loosen the four mounting bolts, figure 15.
Move the housing all the way toward the rear of the vehicle, figure 16, and tighten bolts. To adjust the rear set of brake cables, use a 13mm socket with a short extension and loosen set bolt, figure 17.
Rotate cam plate, figure 18, 1/2 to 3/4” clockwise and tighten bolt. Set handbrake and release to ensure cables are not binding. Make sure 2001-2006 Sprinter Van will easily roll when in neutral with the handbrake off. Readjust if needed.
Remove the pressboard pedestal cover, mark a line 2.87” from the rear end of the board and cut in two, figure 7.
Place the small board across the front portion of the pedestal. Following the passenger directions, install the swivel and seat. Be sure to pull the seat belt wiring connector through the swivel nut hole and connect to the seat wire harness, figure 8.
