I'll add this here too as you asked on the other thread, so it's all on one thread.
To install the guide pipes.
You need to lift up the carpet in the rear of the car.
Remove rear seats, easy enough, clip off black plastic cover from rear seat bracket and unbolt the bracket.
Remove front passenger seat, 4 hex bolts.
I left driver seat in. It is probably easier if you take it out though.
Remove centre pillar cover where the seat belt goes in by lifting up from the bottom and pulling out from the top, needs a bit of force but just clips off, clip off rear door carpet threshold.
Start peeling the carpet up from the rear, you will find one bolt in each floor storage cupboard, remove.
Roll the carpet forward and your ready to install the guide pipes once you remove the blanking caps.
Sounds a bit complicated but everything goes back nice and neatly.

Also note that there is a welded metal piece in the centre of the rear floor, the guide pipes go either side of this, not through the holes in it.

Hi
Thank you for your replies its all done! I wonder how many people scrap these cars just for this fault - I literally had garages offer me 30 for the whole car. Information about it vauge and confusing but in the end I went to scrappy there was a standard 5 seater scenic(infact 3) with manual handbrake so we used that and got new cables for the grand...all in all its cost around 80 with new cables (didnt trust scrap yard ones) and took brother about an hour to do with your guide half of that being the faf on with carpets. When carpet was lifted everyhing for a manual was practically there no holes to drill or nothing - guide tubes and handbrake came off the scenic but cables for a grand scenic...fitted it all fine and working great! 25 the handbrake cost! Think forums should make this post a sticky!

Glad to hear you got it all sorted. I'm waiting for a diagnostic/reset thing I've ordered off amazon to arrive so should be sorted then.

How did you clear the service symbol and P in triangle? And did yours have the"electronic fault" message also?
I've tried with the Obd2 but no joy: (
I have read that you have to change setting on dash from auto parking brake to manual??
