Re: Clio handbrake

If the handbrake levers on the rear shoes are sticking and not returning back to their stops it could explain the slack and non springy feel at the lever.

Full strip , clean and adjust on rear shoes will probably sort it.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
