Default Handbrake failure.

My daughter has an 07 V50 D5 automatic. No problems with the handbrake yet.(Famous last words) but, with an automatic and the selector in "park" is the transmission not locked anyway ? I've always owned manuals and was taught a very very long time ago,(I'm a bit old) to always leave the car in a gear the opposite to which it is likely to roll, i.e.pointing downhill, then leave it in reverse and if it's a really severe hill then turn the wheels so that if by some chance it still rolled away it would be against the kerb, assuming that there is a kerb of course.

My local dealer (doves of Croydon) just invited me for a safety recall concerning a clutch master cylinder. Turns out it was outstanding on my car. It's good to call them time to time...

The recall addresses a design fault within the clutch master cylinder, where a plastic pushrod is used and it may snap with use. The two to three hour job consists of replacing the master with an updated version that uses a metal pushrod. I need to do mine, I don't fancy loosing the clutch somewhere far from home.

Picked up today by SQUIRE FURNEAUX in Leatherhead.

Been told it wont be back until Wednesday. Given me a crappy 1.6 drivE S60. Hardly a match on the D5 S40. Nevermind.

I have also flagged up some other issues with it namely drive splines, chirping suspension and a broken headlight connector that was broken by them on the service. But even that cant be 3 days work. No??

If a Tech takes 3 days to carry out that recall, he needs a bit of training !
