Re: Handbrake freezing on or off
Had this with both my 145 and my Coupe, but not the 156 yet (mind you, I have a garage now)
One solution I found with the 145, when I forgot to leave the handbrake off, was to use a garden sprayer to spray water, from the rear of the car, onto the inner side of the wheel/hub. Seemed to work quite well.
But on the Coupe, I just got the cables replaced, and didn;t have a problem after that.
