    W126 handbrake warning light

    Looking for a bit of help with this one. My handbrake warning light has decided it wants to stay on - it was always a bit sticky in the past and you'd often have to put the handbrake on and off a couple of times to get the light to go off. I know the fluid level is fine & the pads are good...

    E270 w211 peddle handbrake prob

    My peddle handbreak doesn't always release. Mechanically it seems to release but the dash message indicates is still on. I have to pull the release break 2/3 times again for the message to go out. Do you think is a censor problem? Just hope it doesn't pop up on the MOT.

    CL 55, Handbrake Not Working

    The offside rear handbrake does not work the same as near side. It was getting hardly any reading at the M.O.T centre. I have looked at the caliper removed the pads & the pistons are working fine but when you move at slow speed & just push the handbrake pedal you can feel it just pulling up...

    Warning!! Please use handbrake in snow/ice

    Hi This is a bit of advice to all of us that very seldom use anything other than Park when we leave our cars. Park really only locks one rear wheel (because of the differential) and this can cause problems in ice. I know i could be stating what is obvious to some people but many will not...

    Hi, Once the handbrake is applied (via the small foot pedal), does it automatically release when you re-enter the car or do you still need to pull the release handle. Reason why I ask is that each time I start a new journey the brake seems to have released already without me having to pull...

    Hand-brake warning light

    On the W202, since a few weeks, I've been having the handbrake warning light randomly come on while driving, blinking a bit, then going off. My first thought was "hand-brake is worn" so yesterday I replaced the shoes (and rear disks/pads while I was at it). It still came one once or twice...

    W126 Handbrake light

    On my W126 the handbrake works just fine (being a RHD car it has that strange rubber umbrella type contraption rather than the pedal the LHD markets were given). However, from time to time the light stays on when the handbrake is released & you have to operate the handle four of five times...
