Re: Handbrake sticking

ok - but it's the same principle - just a case of going over all linkages as thorough as possible with grease plus the back surface of the brake pads.
I wouldn't recommend WD40 as a long term fix - they'll probably soon stick again. Also you don't want to get WD40 on the brake material as it would make the surface oily.
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
