Yes, there were problems with the brackets, although the A1's were much more 
prone. As suggested, the cable's are also problematic. I, personally, 
replace them with an earlier adjustable one. If he has that, and the rest 
checks out, I can't think of anything else other than internal clutch 
problems. Perhaps the disc disintegrating and pieces falling into the "free"
