I have tried a search but can't find anything.
My 2003 E53 hand brake ratchet clicks the first 2 clicks then wont lock on until you pull it right up. Is it something I can fix I will it need parts or replacement?

I feel hard on buying a new one and the secondhand ones look worn that I have looked at on ebay. I am going to spark the welder up and recreate the worn teeth.

A small file has done the trick after removing the handbrake lever unit. The teeth were slightly misshapen and i didn't think it needed anymore metal putting back in.
What a pain in the ass it was to remove the lever from the car.
