dont know if any one can help,, but my handbrake acts pretty strange,, sometimes when i pull my handbrake , it comes up 3-4 clicks, but other times its about 10 times
Your correct if its knackered then it's a new calliper as I've just had to replace mine for this reason.Yes, it's all contained within the calliper hence the thought that it would be a good starting point.
If it is knackered, I don't think there's anything in it that's fixable.
i do, sometimes i can go 4-5 days without using mine,I would suggest that changing the pads would fix this. It sounds like the pads are sticking in the housing.
Do u leave the car parked with handbrake on for long periods? Or wash the car then not drive it?
I had it on mine and eventually it ripped the friction surface off the pad
I usually wash mine then put it away in my garage, sometimes for a week or more. I can leave the handbrake off and the car in gear when its tucked away to prevent it sticking on.i do, sometimes i can go 4-5 days without using mine,
What discs and pads did u upgrade to mate?I had this problem before I upgraded my discs and it was the adjuster on the caliper the cable had in the past not been seated correctly and on occasion would slip so cause the handbrake to touch to roof more or less.
Since upgrading my discs and pads and re-seating the cable its been fine since
