Re: Scenic 2011 rolled with parking brake on

I have seen this occur about 10 times in my experience. Any handbrake application is only as good as it braking system at the wheels so it's possible there is a brake pad, disc or caliper fault. One of the most common causes is that the brake discs expand during use and start to contract as they begin to cool thus frictional grip is lost at the wheels.

As a polite question. Did you leave the gearbox in gear as recommended by the highway code when you parked the car?
