Hi, Im having a problem with the handbrake on my 52 plate Mondeo saloon that is gradually getting worse.
When the lever is pulled there is a lot of tension felt but no clicks of the ratchet until at the top position when it will click once. however this will not be enough to hold the car and im having to leave the car in gear.
The rear callipurs were replaced along with I seized cable about a year ago by my friendly mechanic.
At the moment because of the bad weather I havn`t had a chance to get underneath to have a look.
I suspect it is either a seized cable or a faulty lever/auto adjustment unit.
my questions are, if its a seized cable and I replace it, does the whole set up have to be adjusted in some way
or, if its the lever mechanism ( I believe there was a recall on these ) can anything be done to lubricate or adjust these.
Any advice would be great, thanks, John
