Good Afternoon all - My W204 went for its MOT yesterday and failed (which was a surprise) as the O/S parking brake was not supposedly providing the correct force. (Not that I could tell because the parking brake is naff anyway!) The garage has confirmed that the cable is actuating, but having then removed the disc, it would appear that the pads have detached themselves from the shoes!? And have little to no pad left. The other side appears to be fine. The rear pads and discs were changed about 18 months ago, the handbrake was set up again/adjusted seemingly well in that it bit well but also released seemingly fine. Has this happened to anyone else?? Anything we need to be changing/adjusting in addition to stop this happening again? Cheers!
