    Default A strange incident with my handbrake last night....

    I know the handbrake issue is well documented on here but I had a strange thing happen last night when I parked. It's an 03 and i've had it for 3.5 years, now has 66k on the clock.

    When I pulled the handbrake up it "snatched" quite violently out of my hand and fell down, nearly took my fingers off LOL I had my foot on the brake and pulled the handbrake up as normal, got it almost as high as normal and was surprised when it flew out of my hand to say the least

    Has anyone else had this happen ? the common prob i've seen has been the handbrake releasing when the car is left parked, not while it is being applied.

    Is it true that VX are doing a recall and fitting a spring ?

    There's a similar post somewhere, I think the other poster was sitting in the car and it rolled an inch or two before he applying the brakes.
