My question is how much noise do your brakes make when you engage the electronic handbrake. For example mine are incredibly loud screeching noise as they engage and to a lesser extent release!!!!
Would appreciate your input!!!
it si pretty loud on mine. not really a screeching noise. I would think it needs lubricant if it is screeching otherwise they may not have installed the calipers correctly or maybe something else is wrong. I would have it checked.
