Re: Handbrake rachet worn, how can i tell?

There is a possibility the button mechanism or the pawl on the racthet may be lazy so it may be possible it was a one-off event but time will tell - just keep an eye on it just in case.

I once came across a similar situation whereby a childs sweet (jelly tot) had fallen into the mechanism - after a few yanks of the lever it fell out.
