Renault Grand Scenic parking brake failure when wet
I have recently got a grand scenic 2005 1.6L petrol. Recently I drove in wet weather and the "check parking brake" icon came up on the dash board and the parking brake wouldn't work. I took it the garage and after running diagnostics they said water and got into the parking brake motor. So 36 hours later after work I got back in the car and the "check parking brake" icon disappeared and the brake was working fine again. I drove home on a wet road and the icon came back on the dashboard and the handbrake stopped working again. This morning I went for a drive and to my suprise the handbrake is working fine again.
Has anyone else had this issue? Is it worth buying a new handbrake motor? Is there a way or water proofing the handbrake motor?? How can it be stopped?
