Question Scenic handbrake

Hello was just wandering if anyone can help I have a 53 reg scenic 1.4. I took it into local garage because as I thought back drivers side brake was occasionally sticking not all the time just some time but always after a while driving it was fine. Garage said it was handbrake problem and disabled handbrake so I could use it until he priced new cables for me. He had now come back and said it is a complete unit and will cost me over 500 for part.!!!!!!! As it is an electronic handbrake surely if it was the handbrake at fault I would have got a warning message on the dash display which I did not. Is the garage pulling a fast one or could this be the case. Please help ??????

Re: Scenic handbrake

Only if an electrical or electronic aspect fails will a fault appear on the dash.

As it is the system is working albeit ineffcientally.

Sadly cables are not available on there own but you may be able to have your unit repaired or consider fitting a second hand unit.
