    Default Handbrake

    Shat a brick and built a house the day guys /Wait till you hear this Was feeling a bit hungry today when out about in the motor. Spotted a snackbar and thought time for a burger. Parked the Veccy on a small hill handbrake on 4 notches jumped out while ordering my grubb heard a strange noise of lets just say a faint clicking noise from me motor. Looked at the breif /you guest it/ she was rolling down the hill the ****ing handgrake suddenly realeased itself. A quick dash door open left foot 1st on brake pedal what a close one.Now i usally put the car in 1st gear anytime i park but its the 1st time in all my driving life of cars and L/G/V/1s this has happend. So there you go chaps /ALWAYS PUT IN 1ST GEAR WHEN PARKING/

    Lucky one there mate.

    I always put it in gear as well, & dont use the handbrake if its flat.

    I forgot though once & leaned on it & the bl00dy thing rolled back about a foot. Typically some guys from work were watching as well, I felt a right t1t.

    Taught me a lesson though.
