Got a 2014 polo and the back brakes keep sticking on after I release the handbrake.
Had the shoes and drums checked, all ok. The shoes look almost new.
Doesn't happen all the time. Usually if it hasn't been used for more than 1 day.
Any suggestions ?

Had this problem one side on my Peugeot 406, turned out to be the handbrake cable was in bad state and was rusted causing it to stick and not release properly. Maybe something similar with yours?

Thanks for the reply.
The garage said they checked the cable and it was o.k.
According to VW it's a common problem on the polo but they didn't offer a solution. Really helpful !
