Re: Anyone have this handbrake problem?
Solved the problem, my hand brake cable had been over tightened!!! If you look on the inside of the rear calipers you will see the cable connected to a small arm, that arm is supposed to sit just off of its stop ( take a look you'll see what I'm on about) when the hand brake is released, this allows the self adjuster mechanism to work. If the cable is too tight (the lever will feel perfect, but the handbrake will eventually fail) then the small arm will never release to the correct position and hence will not allow the self adjuster to work!!!!. Just sorted mine for the MOT, released the cable, lever feels high about 5-6 clicks but it works well.
