Hello all

My first post here and it is a bit technical, so apologies there. Also, not too sure if this would be the right section, but here goes anyway.

We need to test the Qashqai's handbrake efficiency on an MOT Test. This would normally be done while gently pulling up the lever while the car was on a brake tester.

However, the issue here is that its an Electronic handbrake, which means its either ON or OFF, you cant control it.

With other manufacturers there is a way of putting the Electronic Park Brake into a service mode to enable this test to be carried out, but I cant find any info on the Qashqai, not even in the owners manual. I am not talking about releasing the calipers to change the rear pads, thats a different thing. This service mode enables the handbrake to come on gently, but not fully, like you would with a manual one.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Don't know if it answers your question as the video is quite long.

Thanks Doug, but it was after watching that video that I need to find out how to specifically do the Qashqai one.

That one shows some Renault, VW and Range Rover ones i believe.

I may go and ask the local dealership but i very much doubt that they'll be telling me that info (or even know what im talking about).
