'01 Scenic Weak Handbrake
So the handbrake has been getting weaker and weaker. It takes more effort to get the brakes engaged and sometimes it wont hold the car on a steep incline.
I had a look under the car today and the cables connecting to the calipers are a bit corroded.Also the lever from the cables to the calipers are very stiff especially on one side. Im thinking it probably needs new calipers and maybe a set of disks and pads as they are a bit corroded too.
Would a bit of lube
on the levers loosen it up or should i just do the calipers and disks?
Thanks for your help
