Re: Handbrake Question!!


Sounds like they may have over tightened it.

Re: Handbrake Question!!


I have assumed my handbrake was soft due to the owner Before me yanking up it on with out pressing the button in. (Over tightening it)
Another thing I have come across is when it is off it has a lot of side to side slop. I can shack it freely side to side.

Re: Handbrake Question!!


Well the good news is no vibration today (fingers crossed it doesn't return) we assumed over tightening and now it seems fine. Shame is clearly a fault with the make as I really love my car and always rave over it to anyone who will listen. I'd hate to find they have the same problem if they bought one.

Re: Handbrake Question!!


I am very surprised at all the concern re the operation of the hand brake.

I have never in 105,000 km had any concerns what-so-ever and it has always worked perfectly. I little side movement in the HB lever should not be a problem or effect its operation either.

In any case one should never depend totally on a hand brake solely, in any vehicle, and always leave it either in gear or in park when leaving it.

John,

That's not always practical. Generally your not going to switch your vehicle off and park it if you opening up a gate or roll-a-door, etc.


Sarah,

Don't dishearten yourself totally. The X-Trail is a vehicle like any other and problems will occur now and in the future with all sorts of things which will need to be maintained.

My handbrake was a bit sloppy for the first 40000k until I had mine adjusted and has been perfect for the last 23000k.

So it's only the handbrake that is giving you grief??? Can I tell you that your lucky and that just as well the rest of the X-Trail is working fine as expected. emoticon

Re: Handbrake Question!!


Any make of vehicle will have its problems, some major, some minor, because it is assembled from parts, some of it manually by people who can not always do it the same way or take the same care.

Re: Handbrake Question!!


Hi Guys,

Regardless of how good the exy is, you'd have to agree that the handbrake is very flimsy for such a good car. I have never had such a loose hand brake handle in all of my previous cars.

The handbrake itself been working fine, but the movement of the handle was there from day one. I got it tightened by the dealer a couple of times and then a week later everything comes back, so I have given up on it.

Re: Handbrake Question!!


I thought it was just mine with a loose handbrake handle. When I go over rough ground it bounces up and down and the handbrake light comes on and off, on the dash.

I wouldn't be surpised Dave. Actually the handbrake light is very sensitive and you only need to move the handbrake handle slightly up (even before the first click) and the dash light would come on.

Re: Handbrake Question!!


Don't worry I am not losing faith in my car. Still love it. I guess just disappointed a little. My first car - at the time a ten year old - Datsun 200b, not a problem with a handbrake. I guess I just assumed things like that shouldn't fail unless the car is ready for the scrap heap sort of thing. Don't worry, I am still an X-Trail advocate and will continue to tell people the fun it gives me. We have three cars - one for all occcasions I like to say emoticon A shopping trolley - a camping car and a cruising/on track fun car.
