Re: Just crashed my car and I wasn't even in it
My handbrake also sometimes releases on its own, but it only seems to happen in cold weather. The lever just slips off, it may be the release button not engaging on the quadrant. So she stays in gear.
It seems to help if I raise the lever with the button pushed in, hold it fully raised for a couple of seconds with the button in, then let the button go a further couple of seconds before releasing the lever. Don't always remember, hence the in gear bit.
Are Alfa aware?
