Me too......... I think when you stop on a hill so foot brake is on firm the handbrake travels further. but I took the car in to ford and mechanic came out and counted 4 clicks slowly. i told him sometimes its a lot more but he looked at me as if I was simple!!!
i have the same problem, comes and goes the travel changes from tight to slack the only thing i can think of is the pads adjusting through wear as they are wind out pistons i would also like to know the answear
brake caliper piston as opposed to the old "shoes" do not have return springs. Once pedal pressure is released the caliper and the pads will back off from the disc just slightly mainly due to the rotating of the disc
