Question about 2008 BMW 3 Series
Does anybody know how to ajust the handbreak cable on my 06 bmw 320 diesel it puls up about 15 clicks and hardly stops the car from roalling down hills (all the break pads are fine )
Hi, if you lift the hand brake gaitor that covers the lever you will see what looks like a spring with a washer and a clip passing through the washer. Release the handbrake lever to release tension on the cable then unclip the clip from the washer, then you will need to remove one wheel bolt to gain access to the adjuster rod. Raise the rear wheels so that they rotate freely and look through the hole left by the removed wheel bolt untill you see a toothed wheel. Using a long screwdrive you will need to adjust this wheel untill the road wheel does not move then wind the toothed wheel backwards (approx 6 teeth) do this for both wheels, once done fully release the hand brake lever and the clip should relocate in the washer, this should then have adjusted the hand brake
