166 handbrake issues
Is handbrake efficiency an issue with the 166?
The 2.0TS I am considering purchasing has failed several times, and even with new cable, calipers, pads and discs it still failed.
The dealer is stumped, and consultation with the alfaworkshop suggests that all has been done correctly, as far as can be ascertained on the phone. Bedding in may improve the situation, but without MOT and tax this will be difficult to prove. The old pads looked OK, and had been rubbed on production paper, but still it failed.
A second testing station was persuaded to put it on his rolling road, and he said he would pass it.
I am concerned at what will happen at the next MOT, and despite reassurances that it is OK on a 'steep' hill, as a caravanner I need to be certain.
Any experiences/comment would be welcome.
