If you often pull away quickly allowing the brake to auto release there's a second or 2 where you can feel it holding before release, the shoes are not that heavy duty so it appears this wears them down and quickly in some instances.

For those of you who are handy with the spanners.


Adjustment of the electric handbrake should always be checked and adjusted during a scheduled service.
