I've just snapped my handbrake cable after two and a bit years in my car, my dad is going to sort it out when he gets to work though, so no biggy.
However it has me a little curious, I'm usually a bit strong with my handbrake, I pull it rather fast and usually make sure it's tight, I also don't use the button. I now think I should be a bit more gentle and leave a bit of give between the "clicks" if you like.
I am wondering if I should press the button in instead of just pulling it up? I based this on my dad saying that at his work a year or so back after an incident with a car and a handbrake that Vauxhall recommended that people "crank" there handbrake up instead of pressing the button in.
So hexites what do you do, crank it up or gently press the button?
