I had my emergency brake repaired last week. The pedal was loose from the cables, which snapped
The next day, the car was making a completely new noise, especially when braking, so we took at back in (after a 100 mile trip that day when we realized the issue). The conclusion was that the caliper was seizing and not releasing and this damaged the rotor and brake pad, needing $900 worth of repairs. They said they don’t suspect this was related to the emergency brake fix because that emergency brake works with the rear brakes, and the brake issue was for the front.
Regardless, I can’t help but wonder if they did something during the inspection or repair of the emergency brake. I’d appreciate any thoughts on what might have happened, or anything to back up the mechanic’s conclusion for peace of mind.
