Re: Fix: disable automatic parking brake (Scenic 2, other models may apply)
Re the MOT
A lot will depend on the examiner.
Some may decide that fiddling with it so the automatic operation is disables could make it unsafe.
Some will say no difference to a traditional handbrake so no worries
Some may well not even realise that it isn't working as Renault designed.
I had a chat with my local guy last year when I was having issues with mine.
Asked if I could fit a manual, traditional, system.
No problem says he, as long as it operates and gives the readings on the rolling road.
I see no difference between a manual system operated by cables and one operated by electricity. But I'm not an MOT tester
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
