Re: Laguna II rear brakes getting hotter than fronts - binding?
Hi racing57, the back brake on my car is definitely binding and probably needs a replacement caliper. I have had a garage look at it and we came to that conclusion.
Not sure how applicable my situation is to yours. You have new rear brakes, whereas my rear pads have been on the car for over 100k miles. The calipers are the original ones that came with the car and have 217k miles on them.
Perhaps your handbrake just needs adjusting? Adjuster on the Laguna II is under a flap in the storage compartment under the front armrest
