Anyone ever experienced a parking brake that will not
disengage completely?  I have a 2002 A4 1.8T with
80,000 miles.  This morning at 5:00am (-2.5C) the
parking brake would not fully disengage.  The hand
brake can be moved completely down and the brake light
will go off, but the brake is still on partially on. 
The car will move with effort, but will still remain
in place on a hill without the foot pedal depressed. 
The hand brake also has no tension on it from fully
depressed to about a 30 degree angle. You can apply
more tension to the parking brake and feel it engage
more tightly, but still does not fully release?  Left
it the driveway, probably will have to be towed to the
dealer for service again (tow #4, previous 3 for
ignition coils). - Thanks, Ken
