About a month ago, I left my car parked outside as opposed to in the garage.
The next morning the handbrake wouldn't go down :/ I thought the mechanism was broken, but kept pressing etc and after 15 minutes (and sore fingers), I managed to get it down. Some people said I pulled up the handbrake too far - but others said that it *may* have frozen (metal on metal) and they say in Europe they don't use a handbrake in winter.
I thought nothing of it - until this morning (also parked outside, and it was pretty icey in JHB) the same thing happened. Took a pot of slightly warm water and threw it on the wheels incase the freezing thing was right After a few minutes I could release and drive.
Any of you experienced this?
I understsand the logic in -20 degrees ... but at 0?
