Re: Laguna ll Electronic Handbrake

"Do you think that the sticking caliper lever could have caused this problem, because when I initially tried to uncouple the cable,"
Almost certainly! Because the movement on the lever is insufficient to operate the self adjust mechanism as the pads wear, the lever eventually ends up with the nipple and lever tight against the limit stop. That is why it was difficult to dis-connect. The brake eventually becomes ineffective as the pads wear further.
