I don't mean to sound heartless, but I'm almost relieved others have had handbrake problems. My last v50 (05 year) had handbrake troubles. The garage (Parkside Orpington) were useless. I took it in three times and they persistently told me there was nothing wrong - that it was me. The handbrake was pulling up 12 notches on a slope and still not reliable! It was only fixed when I threatened to take it somewhere else.
