Re: parking brake efficiency below requirements

I think the idea behind the brakes correcting them selves if you put the hand brake on wile driving slowly was to bed the new parts in.

It may help but needs doing with extreme care as the parts can get very hot very quickly.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
