Weird Click on Handbrake, anyone can help?
« on: April 04, 2014, 08:33:28 pm »
Hi All,

I just got my car back from my local dealer, it went in for a few odd jobs nothing serious just a new car to me so want things Perfect!

but now its back I'm noticing a weird click when I pull up the handbrake with the button pressed in, when about half way up, like its catching on something, like a click, just one and its every time.

if I keep the brake pressed down I can feel it in my foot as well.

anyone have any ideas I cant see anyone until Monday/Tuesday and it will worry the whole weekend.

only got a month left of dealer warranty then its over to the warranty I got with the car but I doubt things like this will be covered.

Thanks

Dan

    Could be the rear parking brake cable is binding or catching somewhere and moves whilst under pressure.
    You will feel it through the pedal as the rear caliper piston moves.

    thanks for your help, I took it to my local dealer they tightened my handbrake and told me my caliper was broken, something to do with the pins.
