handbrake

  1. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    So when I got my 316Ci (I live in the EU, that's a thing here), the only real problem it had was it needed a handbrake adjustment. I took it upon myself to do it and found that the shoe adjuster on the rear right wheel would turn and offer no resistance. While I tested braking, that wheel would...

    Hi, hope I'm writing in the correct section if not could an admin move it please. I have a E46 and I want to change the handbrake system way of working. I don't want it to work using the shoes system but to have the handbrake working in the caliper. Is this possible without changing the...

    Hi. I'd appreciate any help you can give me. My X5 parking brake keeps failing. It won't apply and the yellow light comes on on the dashboard. I brought it to the garage and he can't figure out what is causing it. He thought a software upgrade may fix it and it did seem to fix it until I...

    Greetings, please help if you know this is something I could potentially fiddle with it myself. couldn't move my bmw 320d the other day because the handbrake was somehow locked. although the handle was fully lowered I think the hand break was still on. goind forward it was no use because the...
