Handbreak Issue for Scenic 2003

The hand break warning light has come on and now my hand break doesn’t work. I took the car to the Renault dealers and they have advised that I need to replace the hand break at a cost of £850!!!! Can anyone tell me if they have had this issue before and were they able to fix it or go to a garage to fix the problem at a lower cost to £850? Any help/suggestions would be most appreciated

If you are a DIY er, there's plenty of recent posts on how to sort it & for a LOT less than a main steeler.

Plenty of posts on this.
Try and reset system

If not remove system from underneath including wires and examine.
Ensure all cables move, central junction box not rusted up too.
Open box and see if motor turns when resetting system.
(There's an ebay company that will refurb box for £150)
Check callipers ain't seized too.

Just in process of doing up one I bought at auction.
One leaking caliper, seized junction box sorted but looks like motor moves but not enough so will need to do box too (that repair company will sell a relay and motor for £80 plus £50 till you send old motor back if ur handy but prob worth them testing it for difference then will rule it out.
