electric parking brake

Post by bentley139 » Fri Feb 09, 2018 6:59 pm

I'm new to the 2006 estate with a electronic parking brake, it works well coming off automatically going forwards but doesn't come off reversing, is it meant to ? if not how do you manage to reverse Into a space uphill without rolling forwards ?

Dont think they do come off in reverse, just have to have some fancy footwork to pull it off. I have never come across a parking space that is uphill either :???:

Maybe the B7 (which I have) is different but it does release from the 'on' position when reversing.
I have to reverse uphill out of my drive every day.
Sometimes it is slightly more reluctant to release but, no problem. :esm
