Espace brakes siezing in cold

I've replaced the handbrake cables last year due to this issue but still seem to be getting the rear brakes siezing on when the cold weather hits.
Any ideas please?

The small control levers on rear callipers can also seize or rather the stub shaft these levers are attached to seize. I fitted grease nipples and external stainless steel coil springs on mine so no more any problem.

Re: Espace brakes siezing in cold

I was about to post pretty much the same thing

levers on the calipers are stiff at best of times does the binding reduce after car warms up ?
