The fault must be in the calipers !
Hard to believe as you’ve changed them emoji35.png

Thanks for your reply 

This is driving me nuts

my mot is due on monday evening - there is no chance of me getting another set of calipers in time 

i may have another set of secondhand untested ones in a shed - i will get them out and fit them and see what happens

Thanks again your help is much appreciated👍

I have changed the rear calipers for a 3rd set , bled them - and now the handbrake is finally pulling up square

Just took the car out and gave the brakes an absolute hammering to the point where i can smell them

Will see how it goes on Monday

car went for mot tonight and brakes were perfect not a problem 

just shows even new / refurbished items can be faulty 

Thanks all for your help,

After all that the car still failed its MOT - defective front lower ball joint - This car has covered less than 2000 miles since a complete

suspension refurbishment - the only thing i did not check over the weekend was the front end !
