This being the brake computer releasing both sides???
The strange thing is that there is movement at the caliper where the brake cable is but still no grip on the disc?? Anyone any ideas? Surely if the brake module was on its way out both sides would fail. For the record I have a 1.4 petrol model (5 seater). Hope someone can offer some info/advice.
I to have the same problem handbrake on and one wheel still spins but before i buy a new handbrake unit just want to make sure that this is more than likely the problem
