Re: Laguna II P2 Handbrake

Hello and welcome to the forum,sorry you haven't had a reply for three days but I guess your post was over looked.

The usual suspects for the handbrake are indeed either a cable or faulty caliper,this should of course have been picked up on the MOT so something is going wrong at the station you took the car to (obviously they missed the tyre as well,did they not even advise you of the tyres condition?) and contacting VOSA would be my first port of call.They might not be able to do anything about the tyre situation as you have already fixed the fault (did you keep the old tyres by any chance?),but as long as the handbrake hasn't been fixed yet they will be able to investigate the test station and take appropriate action.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
