7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

park brake actuator headaches!!!

I have newly aquired a 2006 BMW 750Li and it came with a few issues. The problem I'm looking to fix is the dreaded park brake actuator. I have managed to disassemble it and replace the broken plastic gear inside. Now, the problem I have run into while trying to reassemble it is reconnecting the 2 linkeages (one left and one right) that comes from the rear hubs. From my research, I guess I'm suppose to take off the tires then caliper and rotors to get behind the hub to get to the brake shoes. From there, I suppose to have access the the cable and create enough slack to reattach it inside the actuator housing. I want to know is this correct or please tell me theres another way of doing this to make my life easier. If there is a written set of instructions somewhere or video showing how to reattach I greatly appreciate it.
