    A207 E class auto "Hold" on footbrake

    I read in my owners manual about a hold activated by the brake pedal so if you press it twice hard it will hold like a hand brake so that you can take your foot off the brake pedal without putting it in neutral. Say when you are at traffic lights. Is this an option and does anyone have...

    footbrake - click click CLUNK

    Maybe once or twice a week when I apply the footbrake (talking about the "handbrake" one on the left) I get click-click then a CLUNK that does not sound healthy. Would seem to be coming from the pedal and not from the discs. Anyone heard of this?

    Footbrake different.

    I got the car back from the dealer yesterday and have noticed that for some reason the footbrake no longer makes the "ratchet" sound or feeling when applied (like when applying a traditional handrake without pressing the button), but is smooth, quiet and spongey. Is this an update (I like it)...
