It comes in separate sections yes I cant remember if its a long piece from the hand brake then splits into two at the back for the left and right drum, one side being longer than the other (left is longer iirc)

Drivers side is the short one. Near side goes to the handbrake. Piece of piss to change, soak the adjuster which joins the 2 in plenty of wd40, the only pain is getting underneath the car to do it.

They normally tend to snap where they go through the the part where they turn from the beam to the drum.

Short side is much easier to change than the long side but in reality you may as well change both whilst your at it.
