do you have a handbrake(old style) in the middle consol (between seats or on the dashboard?)
if on the dash then it should be full electronic handbrake, or is it small grab handle type???
is it manual or auto gearbox?
*** Between the seats ***

were there any ABS errors on screen?
** no, screen all clear and even on the time of not being able to accelarate , I looked at the dash incase of any lights *****8

if the handbrake is ALL cable from the calipers to the handbrake then it might not have been the brakes, did you drop it out of gear (freewheel) was it still slowing...
*** Yes, but as the cat slowed,I had to put it back in gear to drive it 10 mts or so to get it off the road into a safe spot... also freewheeled the car to see if I could any type of noise
Thanks for reply
