    The yellow ''parking brake fault'' light is upon me, and after checking the infamous plastic gear in the EMF(which was fine to my surprise), I noticed that left side parking cable has snapped. Since I was about to replace all rotors,pads and brake shoes, decided to get a parking cable as well...

    Hello, New to the forum, but will be around more as I'm a new owner of the Z4M- what a great car! After a track day I needed to replace rotors and pads. This weekend I replaced with stock rotors and Stop Tech sport pads following instructions on Pelican Parts- although they seem like every...

    I am willing to mail my parking brake gear parts for someone to press them on. I have brand new plastic gears, I will not mail you the whole actuator but only what needs to be pressed on. I will pay for shipping both ways and I am willing to pay someone who will do it through PayPal...

    I changed all brake shoes, rotors, flush the brake fluid. Took out the center console cleaned and put back. I have this annoying Brake light on now. Obviously this is not a pad issue. I reopened the Center console to see if any switch issue. Seems like the switch making contact. I need to get...

    My 2004 745i is displaying a message of Parking Brake failure. When you stop the car it won't engage, just the yellow light shows.

    Hi, I have a 2004 330i ZHP manual transmission. About 4-5 months ago, just after taking my car to the dealer for an oil change, my parking brake started acting up: about 1 in every 4 times I tried to put it on when parking, the little button you depress would stay in and when you pulled up 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...
