Re: Sticking Hand brake

From what you've written, the advice given seems sound.
Handbrake shoes/pads will "rust" in if left applied for too long.
How long depends on state, weather and possibly what colour socks you are wearing.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
