My 98 clio 1.2 has 174,000 miles on it. I've done all the work on it myself for years with the help of this forum but as I'm presently injured I had to bring it to a garage as one of the back brakes had seized. They told me they replaced the whole handbrake assesmbly apart from the handbrake lever unit itself. Since I collected the car the handbrake seems to lack a spring. Previously when applying the handbrake there felt to be some resistance against a spring before reaching the biting point. Presently there is no resistance at all before reaching the biting point. The handbrake works very well and the rear drums do not bind.
Am I right in thinking that the only springs in the system are 2 srpings that are located in the drums? Could this be an MOT fail?
Currently in lloydy123's garage:
