Question about 1997 BMW 318
I had it parked on a steep drive way last night and it started rolling. E brake was pulled as far back as physically possible and I left it in first gear. Once we saw that I jumped in turned it on and tried to pull back up. I had it in first with the clutch fully released and my gas stomped to the ground and was still rolling backwards. How can I fix this?
Adjustment will usually help, but try parking with front pointing down hill next time.(back in, apply E brake .) Emergency brakes usually hold better/well when vehicle front heading down hill. If it doesn't hold with front pointing down, then rear brakes need attention.
