    My handbrake has started to stick occasionally on release recently I.e the lever on retracts about halfway into the dash. It usually works in the second attempt.

    Has anyone encountered this issue?

    I've had the car nearly a year but it's only recently started happening.

    Sticky cable or the shoes are sticking after all its is damp and wet around this time ! the brake shoe dust can contribute to stickiness.

    Thanks. I didn't consider the possibility that it might be the actual brakes rather than the level. Something to keep an eye on.
