It would have saved you the problem you just had also. Hey, don't use it. I really don't care but don't complain when you have a problem like you just had. Enjoy!

I did have an e-brake lock up when the vehicle was parked/stored for the winter in a covered garage. Since that happened, I never use the e-brake when storing longer than a few days.

Ummmmm, did you read my post mate? It happened because my father USED the handbrake...... wouldn't have happened if he DIDN'T use it

The shoes have a very high metal content, and rusted after a week of the handbrake being engaged to the inner drum

IF he had let it sit where it was, on flat ground, just in Park, no handbrake, it would be just fine

Re: CAUTION - WK "E-Brake"/"Handbrake" issue!

I read it and I still believe that regular use of the e-brake would eliminate this problem. I doubt short term storage would so totally rust the pads to the drums. Possible I guess under extremely wet conditions but doubtful. I'm thinking your never having used the e-brake has caused corrosion inside the drum and cables which is what caused the problem. Very hard to say without seeing it but less than a week and almost fused to the drum?
I have used my e-brakes on my cars for over 40 years and never had any problems with them. Just my experiences here. I'll use mine you do as you feel is best.

Re: CAUTION - WK "E-Brake"/"Handbrake" issue!

No..... lol

We'll agree to disagree

Using it won't change the fact that the linings are so laden with metal that they're magnetic. Note that there was no rust inside the drum, clean surfaces etc. It's a simple matter of the lining sticking to the drum under this particular circumstance.

I'm suprised that anyone who knows me doesn't realise by now that I actually know what I'm talking about! lol
