SOURCE: seized handbrake

you'll have to jack the car up and take the wheel off, then take the assembly apart and push the pistons in the calipers back in then put it all back together and pump the brakes until they go either hard or you'll need to bleed them again to release any air from the system

if you go to the dealer they will copy the mech manule it you ask them as they want you to get frustrated and take it to them
so go on and ask and if all else fails take it to them or goto local parts store like auto zone they can preint it off too
dealer is best bet though

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.

I have a 2002 bmw 325i E46. I do not have a full brake pedal unless I pump the brakes a couple times. If I slam on brakes hard, the brake light comes on the dash. The brakes have been professionall


pumping the brakes is an indication of out of adjustment brakes. However if you have disc brakes all around then that will not be the case. IF you have drum brakes on the rear then the brakes have not been properly adjusted . Pressure bleeding does not necessarily mean that there is no air in the system. I suggest that there is still air in the system in one of the circuits from the master cylinder or the master cylinder has not been primed before fitting
May be you should have the problem investigated by an accredited brake shop before something drastic happens.
