Re: Parking brake not releasing

There is a handle in the boot to release the brake. Make sure it's in gear or chocked before releasing. This will allow you to move it. Somwhere on here (search button) there is info on resetting afterwards. You will need to find out why it jammed. My guess is excessively worn rear pads. For that & diagnostics you will need a friendly, local, Renault Experienced garage. Or the DIY skills yourself. There is good back up on here as lots of posters have Mk2 Meganes & Scenics. Pads cost me 17.50 for Ferodo & 4 hours (less dinner time) to do.
