    Hiya, just started getting a quite loud grinding noise from the back on roundabouts. Applying the handbrake lightly seems to fix it. Wondering if its a pad rubbing.

    Looking under the back I see what I assume is the handbrake cable going in to the centre bottom if the wheel, quite a way from the caliper. There isn't a separate drum handbrake is there?

    Hi @Karl T have a look at this thread

    Handbrake Adjustment (Guides - )

    Not read it for a bit but if I recall correctly, some 8th gens have a drum type hand brake within the rear disc and (I think?) some just use the calipers and disc for the handbrake.

    The Tourers have a drum brake system for handbrake.
