The backplates support all the handbrake shoes and gubbins that are well known for seizing up and/or disintegrating and can b***er up the EPB module costing you many £££s

It may be a bit of a pain as you have to pull the hubs I think but change them; and while you are in there fit new shoes, springs etc and lubricate/adjust properly. Will be well worth it.

Have a good look at the brake lines from front to rear and over the rear axle - they are very well known corrosion area and so much easier to change body off. 2008 MY Java Black TDV8 HSE
