Hi, I hope you are doing well. I'm sorry to hear you having issues sourcing parts for your fiat multipla and understand how frustrating it can be trying to find parts when they are in short supply. The cables are still available in the aftermarket for online I will add part numbers to aid your search. The lever won't be quite so easy to find and it will be a case of searching online to try and trace a used version. I've attached the part number to help.

right cable 46547547

left cable 46757058

handle and mount 735266643

Hi Kevin. Thank you for your response, however having viewed the results of your information it appears that the part I am looking for is not the one you have referenced. I do not need a handbrake lever and mount, the part I am searching for is the Underbody handbrake MOUNTING PLATE. This is the plate that holds the cables in place and is not###-##-#### Do you know the part number for the Mounting plate? This is the part no longer manufactured by Fiat, which is why I am finding it so difficult to find

let me look this up for you

is it number 14 in this picture

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
That’s what I was thinking but to be honest I don’t know. All I was told by the mechanic is that it is a 4 bolt handbrake mounting plate. The one on the car is totally rusted and hanging off, Ibelieve it is only the cables holding it on. He did tell me he had taken a photo so will ask him to send it to me and hopefully it might be a clear picture

ok perfect that will help send it over when you have it and il take a look

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Couldn’t contact the garage but took a couple of photos myself. Hope they are of use. It’s the bolted piece behind cables, it looks like the bottom has rusted out. It certainly looks a similar shape to fig 14, but I’m not a mechanic.

ok yes, I agree it does look like 14 in the picture. the part number is 46553006
