Hi guys. I admit this is on a mk4 golf chassis, but I find this forum far superior and the 8L is the golfs cousin.
I have a funny issue with the handbrake. Although it had received new disks and pads, it nearly failed the MOT for efficiency.
When the brake is released the pads will rub. I have to pump the pedal a few times to stop the rubbing. Also the lever itself feels slack until its received a few pumps.
When doing the pads and disks (Pagid) I degreased then used Mintex Ceratec on the sliding pins and back of pads. I also picked up a set of OE cables just incase they are stretched.
Or do we think its an internal ratchet issue? Any how to guides on the web?
