My garage here in Cardiff have had the car and adjusted the handbrake on numerous occasions with varying degrees of success. A couple of months ago however they discovered that one of the handbrake shoes had disintegrated completely. This had in turn damaged the drum which necessitated new discs, pads, shoes and handbrake cable at a cost of Ã‚Â£750. The initial shoes they fitted were no better and one failed almost immediately. The shoes were replaced with some improvement but over the last week or so the situation is back to where it was before. Is this a know fault with this model or have I just been unlucky? Is there a remedy?
