Hello people ive searched and searched and i cant find a hand brake mechanism removal.. I just bought this 325i 1992 sedan and its broken. I want to fix it but i was hoping for a little light before i end up braking it some more..the teeth on it are broke and it jerks left and right. I found the adjustment diy but it didnt show how to remove brake lines from the mechanism itself just loosen so idk.. I have taken the center console apart to look at it and see but it got a little dark and i cant see. I have a replacement part already so i hope someone knows something by morning. Thank you for your time and help.

To remove the emergency brake cables from the handle you remove the nuts, then pull up on the handle while pushing back on the cable ends.

here it is.. what is the center yellow check for? the circle with the lines on the side is the rear brakes right?
From left to right:

Check engine (self explanatory)

Check (look to your right at the OBC -or multifunction display if you have fewer than 18 buttons- it has an message for you)

Brake pad wear sensor needs replacing

air bag light. -usually the passenger occupancy sensor-.
