Re: Scenic II Handbrake Failing?

Finally managed to get it fixed and passed the MOT although the MOT did say the parking brake efficiency is only 28%. Simply cleaned the sliding plate that has the cables attached to it. I've attached the before and after pics to see the difference. I had to remove the plate with a hammer and chisel as it was so stuck but now it moves like new and freely with little effort by hand.
