Re: the dreaded handbrake

Glad you got the dragging bit sorted.

For info for you, the calipers fitted may be the wrong ones. There are two basic types, one for auto parking brakes and one for manual lever systems.

The auto style fit both versions. The manual style can cause issues with the auto brake operation.
The difference is in position of the cable operated lever. I have a pretty picture from TRW showing the difference but not sure I can post it due to copywrite rules

And later TRW re-furbished calipers, do not have the external spring (it's internal) and may not have the fixing arm for it.

On the Auto operation?
What do you mean? We may be able to advise.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
