Re: electric handbrake issue
Chances are that your EPB has a jammed cable.
Which wouldn't be too bad except Renault will not sell cables.
There are some for sale on
but I cannot comment on quality so you decide
I do know, that the units are not beyond the reasonably competent home mechanic, at least to swap out cables.
But as it is a safety item, again you must decide to try or not.
Alternative is to google BBA Reman, they offer an overhaul/rebuild service, just over 100 last I saw a price
Again, no personal use but have seen many positive reports and IMO better then spending similar on a second hand unit in a scrapyard that may have same fault.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
