Hi Guys, Just had my brake disk and rotors replaced and now the handbrake wont always release unless. Taken it back and they cant seem to find a fault. Sometimes after I drive of it will then release and other times not. Seems to be more apparent when the handbrake had been applied for sometime.. Any ideas how I can fix this? Was fine before I had the brakes done.. Many thanks if anyone has some advice....

the handbrake is a mechanical brake shoe on each rear wheel, either they are sticking, or the cable is sticking. A decent brake place should be able to work it out and fix it...

The parking brake mechanism inside the rear drums tends to rust from disuse, and is a common problem. Get in there and clean it all up you should be all set.
