most of the time it is underneth the car look under on both back wheels you will see cables about the thickness of your finger follow them up to roughley the middle of the car they will both meet on like a t bar with 1 nut this is the nut that you tightern but you have to do this with the hand brake off so make sure you are on flat serfise and all wheels are chocked up so it wont roll while you are under it,, saftey first

raise vehicle and remove 1 wheel stud each side, use a flashlight to see inside.While spinning the wheel you will see a adjuster that loocks like a sprocket,use a long narrow flathead to pru against this part and you will see it turn, turn it untill it locks the wheel and then back it off about three teeth

SOURCE: How do adjust my HandBrake , I have a BMW 316i

If you remove the rear wheels, through the bolt holes in the disc you should find a toothed wheel which needs to be turned with a screwdriver until the disc cannot be turned, then back off 6 teeth to prevent over adjustment and binding. (you can adjust the cables inside but this only takes up the slack and doesnt adjust the handbrake correctly) once they have been adjusted check the balance by driving gently forward and backwards whilst applying the handbarke and watching which side of the car reacts first then adjust the other side via the cable inside the car

you can't. there's those star nuts that are supposed to do it, but they don't work. You can access the star legs through the access hole on the drum. spin them till the drum stops. Test the hand brake and you'll find it still doesn't stop the car while moving. BMW engineering.....brilliant.

Does a 1995 bmw 3series have handbrake shoes situated under the hub


The handbrake shoes are in the drum. They use a dual rear brake system. The discs are operated by the pedal and the handbrake operates the shoes in the drum.

What do you mean "under" the hub?


Adjusting the emerg brake is difficult. You have to adjust the brakes in the drum first, then the cable.
