Re: Parking / handbrake problems

Sounds as a problem within the handbrake lever itself. Did you already remove the cover to see what is happening?

Re: Parking / handbrake problems

I think that you can use the manual for the 4.0/4.7 for the brake system, eventhough i don't think you would find a lot of info about the handbrake. I think that there is no other way then removing the cover over the handbrake lever and see if something strange is happening there.
