EPB behaviour after adjustment

Afternoon guys
Did the bodsys brake bible EPB adjustment as I had a slight scrape or catching noise on one side
All went well been no issues for a week of normal driving untill today
Backed off the drive no issues ,went to the bottom of our road to turn around ,parked out side my house waiting for the wife to board and when I tried to apply the EPB it made the same engagement noise but it went on longer , suspected I may have an imminent locked on issue I released it
Drove to where we wanted to go but parked level and didn't engage the EPB
Got home after mentally stripping and rebuilding it over and over and thought I would try it at home as I had nothing to loose once home
It worked perfectly
Question is do I have a problem or not ,it had new shoes ,pads ,disks and EPB shoes last year at Hunters main dealer
Also it cured the bad vibration i reported in one of my other posts after I had adjusted
Borrowed time or not guys
Cheers
Phil

Well not a good record for the LR dealer that repaired it - do you use the EPB much? Do you use the auto release on drive away at all?
It shouldn't have been a problem so soon after all the work including shoes if it was adjusted correctly surely
Keep us updated with what the Indy finds

I use the EPB mostly by the lever not the drive away method
The work was prior my ownership
I normally self spanner but I'm not laying on my drive at this time of year , I'll let some one else have the hassle
