So handbrake was sticking on nearside caliper to the extent that the car sat on a noticable hill without rolling back. Had a spare caliper so changed it this morning. On way to work handbrake still sticks on and is crap. Thinking it may be cable at fault. Have always regarded mkiv rear calipers as weak link but has anyone had grief from cables stretching/sticking. Cheers.

Have you got external springs fitted on the calipers? That can help but it does sound like you might have a rusty cable sticking in its sheath

Has external springs on caliper. Was in a rush to get it done for work. Think it's the cable sticking. Always something running a 20 year old car daily.
