Re: Espace Rear Brakes

The electronic handbrake uses a cable to pull a lever on the rear calipers to lock the pads onto the disc. To remove the cable from the calipers you need to disengage it on the button (leave it in gear, engine off so it doen't move) then you should have enough slack to pop the cable out of the clip. To be honest, just to change discs and pads, disengaging it should normally be fine.
