Handbrake screech from box behind brakes

Hi, put my Renault Scenic 2 into a French tyre and brake garage to replace rear pads yesterday. When returning to the car they told me that the handbrake was making a screeching noise when engaged.

Now when engaging the handbrake, there is a grinding sceeching noise coming from what appears to be a box behind the brakes and my dash lights up with a warning telling me in French that my handbrake is 'faltering'.

The garage suggested I took it to a Renault dealer, but I have a feeling that he has made a mistake when replacing my pads because I have had no problem with it previously - plus it normally begins with a 100 euros for my Renault dealer to do anything over here.
Any ideas?

Currently in lautivere's garage:
