How is the parking brake setup on the 850? Does it have its own pad? or does it use the main rear pads?

Thankyou,
Austin

The handbrake has a completely separate pair of drum brakes on the rear axle - full info is in the Haynes manual but a tip is to occasionally put it on a couple of notches and drive for about 1-200 yards to clean all the rust and crud off the pads.
