Handbrake release button rattle

Post by blue-john » Fri Aug 31, 2018 6:36 pm

Recently taken delivery of R line and so far, delighted. The only ( pathetic ) niggle is that there is a slight rattle/vibration and I have hunted it down to the handbrake button thingy that you depress to release it. Has anyone else had this or am I being too fussy ?

Someone else had this issue and took it to the dealer and they resolved it for them. So worth contacting them to fix it for you. Get some photos up of your r-line in the photos section so we can all see your nice new motor.

If it is the handbrake release button and not a gear lever rattle (as per thread title) then yes, others have experienced it - last 3 posts on page 4 of the thread at the link below;

I’d take your car back to the dealer and get them to sort it.

I was just about to post about this. Low and behold, this was the top post.

Same issue here. Normally i have my music on too loud, but the times when i don't, all i focus on is the rattle/vibration from the release button on the handbrake!

As suggested, i will contact dealer to see about a resolution. It seems like the spring isn't long/light enough to keep it in place when nice held in.

I just got mine fixed today, they said it’s a common thing to happen with earlier builds of the Polo. They replaced the handbreak button when I had my service no problems :-)

Hi, just a little Silicone Spray fixes it.
