Not quite true. After a while it stopped holding the brake on.

What I found was that the spring (blue cross) where it was held in place on the right side of the screw(near the green cross) the plastic cracked and was not holding the spring in place as securley as it should.

I had to drill a a new hole in the plastic casing just to the left of the green cross. This has worked and held the brake as it should do.

Currently in fezzer1's garage:
2005 Grand Scenic 1.9DCi and a 2006 Megane saloon 1.9DCi
