I'd forgotten all about the MB type of brake, never had any problems with that ,but got to admit I didn't often use it.

... never had any problems with that
Neither have I. People just don't like things to be different. Some seem to have a problem with Merc's column shift too.

,but got to admit I didn't often use it.
Neither do I .... probably only when parking on a hill.  :y

It's an American design, admired by the Germans because it requires two mechanisms rather than one. What makes it even better is that the main one faces the wrong way....

On my Audi I have to use VagCom to release the rear calipers. As the voltage needs to remain stable whilst working on them it advises hooking up the battery charger to the vehicle when working on them. What a faff compared to the traditional handbrake.


Just wait until they seize on.

I always forget where Park is on those column shifts, alrhough at least neutral is easier to find than on their automatic truck boxes ;D

Must admit that I prefer the foot parking brake.

On the corsa I drove, the EHB released as soon as you brought the clutch up to the bite position. It was just not right, there was a split second between car wanting to go and brake releasing, felt wrong. But, I dare say, there are people who are used to it and think it is just fine, not realising that most things are just fine until they need fixing. Then you realise that you have no control over it, that's why it's called electronic.  ;D

Mines " fine" at the moment works perfectly & totally silent & instantaneous in operation, when I bought it , it was exactly as you described hesitant & notchy , no previous history of it ever being changed in the service history so for 11 years old it wasn't bad I suppose

On mine the auto handbrake will come on as soon as you open the drivers door as well, so it's *impossible* to not have the handbrake on if you exit the vehicle. Always wondered what would happen if I opened the door when moving.  ::) :-\  Mine is set to auto handbrake but I always release it myself just before I pull away.  ::)

*It can be coded out but it's like that by default*

In the middle of R & D   ;) Mine will go into park itself if you switch the ignition off or open the driver's door. Though in my mind, Merc put them 4rse about face ... you push it forwards for reverse & backwards for drive. On a FLT you push the paddle in the direction you want to go.  :y

Common on all, its a legals thing  :y (so if you have your hand on the selector, select the wrong direction, it naturally pulls the lever to N)
