    Coupe rear brakes locking up

    Every so often my rear brakes will lock on really quick and then come off asif someones pressing the brake pedal really hard but only on the back. Only seems to happen when you turn round a corner quite sharp as well?

    Any one else's coupe do this?? Or have any idea what it could be?

    They probably need a good service,
    My guess is that the handbrake lever is sticking,(caliper end)

    A quick fix would be a sqirt of wd40 only on the working lever part of the handbrake, working the handbrake lever several times.

    BTBHonest if it were me i would take the buggers off and give them a good work out,
    and clean them up, and renew the pads,

    It could also be the caliper piston sticking,
    I bet they are Bosch
