Re: Auto' hand brake. MOT failure.
The lever not returning to its stop could be down to cable adjustment or the handbrake mechanism in the caliper starting to seize up.
As mentioned the pads can become tight on their mounts and the caliper may not be sliding freely, to check it out you will have to get the caliper off and pads out.
Put you car details in your garage section...follow the green instructions at the bottom of my post.
Thanks for that TTT.
I thought it was self explanatory in the third line down in the post.
05/55. 05=the year, 55=the plate but anyway I’ll do as you suggest.
