I am having problems with my handbrake on the Focus C...

Question

I am having problems with my handbrake on the Focus C Max 2.0l GHIA 06 model which has the button handbrake instead of the conventional lever. When I am stationary on a hill start with the handbrake on I am unable to pull away in 1st gear using clutch and accelerator and pressing the handbrake down once I get the biting point. It works fine this way on level ground, downhill, or a small uphill incline, but when I really need it on a steep hill it doesnt work. I can only work it by pressing the footbrake and then switching my foot to the accelerator hence I roll back a little.


Answer

it needs to be chacked by your local dealer,
