I have a 2007 Honda Civic DX sedan. Recently my hand brakes stop staying up. Mechanic said the cables are good but I need some sort of clip or spring but he isn't sure because he is unfamiliar with this vehicle. Can someone help?

Yes, your parking brake has a return spring. You should be able to goto a local auto parts store to get that and the arm replaced.

I also recommend you find another mechanic as most of this information is available on the Internet.

Hope this helpful.
