Over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that my Mondeo doesn't role when stationary on a slight hill. Also the first inch or so when pulling on the handbrake is completely slack.
Whilst driving to work this morning on the mortorway, one of the rear brakes just started making a vibrating noise but as soon as I stabbed on the brakes it stopped. However on getting to work I have notice the left rear wheel is quite hot.
So I thought either wheel bearing, or seized caliper.
Doing a bit of googling and without the handbrake sympton I would have said seized caliper, but everything points with the handbrake to it being the cable that is partially seized.
Has any one had this happen and know if it is easy to solve DIY, or the cost of having a garage sort it. I am weary of the garage approach incase they say new pads, discs, calipers etc etc.
