MoodyMike Hi,
If you sit with your foot on footbrake, it should hold on any slope while you quickly release the clutch and accelerate away. Not sure about a Manual when using EPB. Does the EPB release when you set off from rest?? If so it should hold on a slope until you release the clutch.
Yes it does , I had the manual and used to use EPB on hill starts.
Just use the button to put it on , but just drive away and it releases automatically, no need to use the button tobrelease.

Barnsh Hi,
Thanks for that, but after I advised, I took to reading 'The Bible' , page 131. As I have an Auto I didn't take much notice first time round.

When electronic handbrake on no problems pulling away when releasing clutch, works very well. As stated problem is stopping on a slight slope. I read somewhere that there is a level sensor, maybe this is not sensitive enough.

It’s for this very reason in the manual I tended to use the EPB which works well , otherwise you have to guess each time whether the slope is enough to engage the gradient release/hill start. You also have to factor in stop start if you use it , a wiggle of the steering wheel starts the engine. If the engine is slow to start when you can roll back too if you wanted a quick get away it can catch you out in the manual. The auto seems to behave a bit better.

Thanks for your input Barnsh, conclusion use the EFB unless you on a reasonable gradient.
