Re: Scenic electronic to manual parking brake conversion?

I would be interested in this info also....I haven't got a Scenic but a mate has.

Not sure what handbrake lever you would use, or if the original calipers could be used.
If the electric motor part has cables coming from it that go to the calipers maybe you could use them with a manual setup.
I have seen calipers that look like they have the motors built onto them, but not sure if they are on the Scenic?

I would imagine you would have to programme the electronic handbrake out of the system so you don't get warnings flashing all over the dash.


Please take the time to enter your vehicle details in the "What's current in your garage?" box.

To do this:
Hover over the "TOOLS" tab at the top of the page
> then in the dropdown click on "User Dashboard"
> click on "Edit Your Details" at the top Left hand side.
> scroll down to the "What's current in your garage?" box and enter your vehicle details.
> Once the details are entered scroll down to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

> Done.
