Re: Scenic 2 electronic handbrake project
This issue is bound to come around again as Scenics with electronic parking brakes get older, more will fail and the Renault repair price will represent a large percentage of the cars value.
Scrapped scenics with manual handbrakes will become sought after and demand may exceed supply however, many of the parts used may be the same as other Renaults and some might easily be fabricated. Ideally someone needs to put a conversion kit together although reprogramming the car to tell it it no longer has the electronic brake will probably be the most difficult task to overcome.
My brake still works for now (68k) but who knows how long it will last!
