Re: Sticking Hand brake
Thanks for your replies it's appreciated
Might sound silly question but are rear brakes same for both hand brake application and normal braking pedal? There aren't two different brakes in the rear?!
Madnoel: when you say linings, do you mean the pads?
If changing the pads was a good way to solve this then I'll look into getting it done?
You did say the mechanic thumped the drums - that's why I mentioned linings (brake shoes).
Before going any further you need to confirm if the rear brakes are drum or disc type.
