Re: Electronic Handbrake - DIY Repair possible?
The handbrake module is under the car. Look at the rear calipers and follow the brake cables back to the module. The are programmed to the car, unfortunately. I want to get hold of a dead one to see if a repair is possible. Normally it's either a sticking pad/caliper or damage to the brake cable that causes them to fail. If I had a dead one I could investigate further. I beleive there is a relay and a motor/actuator inside the module. Relays are relatively easy to fix, I've repaired hundreds of the old Jaguar light modules. If it's the cables sticking or the caliper, these need sorting out too. There was another thread here somewhere about a polish guy that fixes them for around £70. I'd have a search for that first.
