    #1 your parking brake is not fine, that is a no brainer, what idot told you that? The pulling right is either a wheel cylinder problem or a loose part in the front end, is the steering tight, is the alignment ok?? Get back to me.

Parkng brake likely needs adjustment. so that's that.

for the 1st part of your post however, do the following and in this order.

CHECK YOUR AIR PRESSURE. A low tire on one side and not the other WILL CAUSE PULL. It's a super cheap fix and you'll feel like a genius. After that, rotate tires if the problem still exists. if that doesn't do it then take it in.

It sounds as though you have a frozen emergency brake cable. This usually will wear down the rear brake shoes to a point where they are metal to metal. Get them fixed asap.

Brakes engage automatically while I am driving slowing me down and there is a burning odor.


All i can suggest is that you probably have a brake hanging up. To check and see which one it is, drive the vehicle and feel (carefully in case its real hot) to see which wheel is hotter than the others. I use a hand held electronic temperature sensor, but you can tell by feel. Rick

95 325 is e-brake doesn't fully engage


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.

You have to remove the center console to get to the parking brake assembly.So there might be some trim panel or cup holders to pry off to get to the console mounting screws.Good Luck!!!!!
