Yes, BTDT. I've had problems with the S4 e-brake, right side. I've pulled
out, cleaned and lubed the e-brake shaft, used the e-brake regularly,and yet
this Winter on a very cold morning, it stuck. So now I do the opposite. On
very cold days, I tend not to use it. I really don't enjoy warming my hands
over a glowing red rotor roadside while fumes of burning brake pads waft in
the cold still air!   I'll have to work on it some more. Thanks for the
story. Sounded like FUN.
