E-brake malfunction after attempted replaced it with aftermarket one

Bad result for the the DIY attempt. E-brake malfunction, even though it looks great. 650i digit matte black, look great but comes with lots of scratches. Should I continue with Angel Eyes. LOL

My E-brake is just not working and look great. When I pull it up and release, it drops back to original possition => my ebrake not working. Any help?

I found TopDowninFL DIY for Angel Eyes but I don't really get it and pics are gone. Can anyone give me a list of tools required and in detail pic with instruction? His video started with the cover already removed and I'm stuck. I don't know how to remove them. I'm total newbie here.

It would be great if anyone can help me with the website where I can find the part number for the boot cover of ebrake. I broke the plastic thing to snap it in the hole.

After you have cover off, its just a one - quarter turn/twist and and the bulb with housing backs out.

I'm desperate. Been trying too many times but couldn't get the OEM bulb out.

I've seen them all too but too complicated, I still wanna try more but the space is abit too small for my hand I think.


I have the Halo Upgrade kit from WeissLicht
