  1. MOT time. And the verdict is not good. Mostly fixable stuff, so that's good. But one of my main concerns is 'Offside rear parking brake recording little or no effort'. I actually noticed this myself last week when I was working on the exhaust, I was able to spin the wheel freely with the handbrake applied. It just doesn't seem to be doing anything at all. From what I know this is a common problem with the Civic. In fact I'm pretty sure I even posted about the handbrake performance once before (although I can't find the post now). All callipers have been serviced by myself within the past year. I removed the rust from the callipers themselves so that the pads could moved freely, and I think I serviced the sliders on the rears too. 95% certain. Tell me there is some way to fix this relatively quickly and easily, preferably without forking out £100s on new brakes. Discs are also reported to be 'excessively fluctuating', but I'm guessing that's completely unrelated.

    The handbrake on my MC1 Aerodeck is a waste of space. I think I read somewhere - possibly on this forum - that it's a common problem. Is there any way of improving it?
