About Handbrake Levers

The Skoda handbrake lever is typically positioned to the left hand side of the driver on a right hand drive vehicle, however there are some exceptions. The lever is used to apply the brakes in an emergency, although it is important that the foot brakes are not used at the same time, as this can upset the vehicle’s balance. It is also used to engage the brakes when parking, or when stopping on a hill to ensure the vehicle doesn’t roll away. 

The Skoda handbrake lever has a ratchet locking mechanism which will not disengage until a button is pressed on the lever itself. It is attached to the mechanical braking system via a cable which runs to the brakes. The cable can attach to drum brakes at the brake shoes or attach to disc brakes, which utilise a lever and corkscrew near the piston.

Signs that your Skoda handbrake lever may need attention could include the handbrake feeling too tight or loose, which may be a sign of a badly adjusted or worn handbrake cable. It may also not secure the car when applied, meaning that the vehicle can move when parked. Any handbrake issues should be rectified immediately.

Skoda trivia

  • In 2004, 1.8 million Skoda cars were registered in the Czech Republic. There are only 3.7 million cars in total that have been registered there, which means that almost half of all the cars available in the Czech Republic are Skodas. Every Skoda sold there is matched by a planted tree.
  • The team that designed the Lamborghini Miura and the Countach also designed the Skoda Favorit.
  • Skoda won the RAC Rally with the 130LR Estelle 17 times in a row in!
  • The most expensive Skoda ever built was meant to be eaten, not driven! The £500,000 cake was a promotion for the Skoda Fabia, and the resulting advert was Skoda's most popular ever, winning several advertising awards. The cake weighed a tonne and a half and even had a replica engine that was 'oiled' with golden syrup.
  • Skoda is in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest sponsorship of a sport. They have spent over 25 years as sponsors of the Hockey World Championships.
