Angry scenic 2 electronic rear brake inefficiency

Hi all, well, after doing both lower balljoints and both tie rod arms, then serviceing all 4 brake calipers the cars gone in today for a retest (all the above were fails / ambers so I did them all)

Just had a call and it's failed on the nearside rear brake using the handbrake.

So, hydraulicly its fine, were it failed previously, but now on the handbrake only, its failed on that side only where previously was fine.

So any tips on what's possibly wrong, Im guessing its got to be the cable itself as I assume there's one handbrake motor that activates the 2 seperate cables?

Planning on getting it home and jacking up the rear then with the parking brake on see exactly how bad it may be by trying to turn the wheel

any help gratefully recieved chaps
