Have you tried wiggling the road wheel to check it is not a bearing going?

Did you apply copper grease on bottom edge of shoe, and self adjusting part, and red rubber or silicone grease on piston? You  can also apply deep penetration spray where the bearing turns. 

I also had a knocking sound, and hand brake felt soft, my shoe had slipped at the bottom.

But it could be a bearing too, check the noise level using your phone?

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
