    I've noticed the last couple of weeks during the colder weather, If my van is sat for more than a day, the rear brakes stick on ?
    Does anyone else have the same problem, I normally have to just drive forward slowly and they will release.

    Didn't get this on my 1965 Splitscreen !! :p

    Sounds like the rear handbrake freezing on the disc, can youleave it off at night?

    Sounds more like moisture frozen on the disc mixed with rust from brake dust.

    Happens every time I pull away from a cold morning on all 4 vehicles.

    Ok cheers guys, I'm not on my own then.
    Didn't really want to leave the handbrake off, didn't really expect it when you pay all that money for a van :mad:

    Same as when you wash the van and find the rear pads give a clunk as you pull away.

    my beemer was a buggar for that......occasionally had to give it a bootful to get it to release. Occasionally, I gently pull the handbrake on while I'm driving, to clean the disc off.

    Yep, does it all the time at the mo. The salt on the roads just adds to the rusting up of the disc's.

    Mine does it too. As long as it keeps releasing, then no problems!
