From the bottom of car, look for the hand brake cable connected to rear wheel. Find the nut with bolt and loosen the bolt or tighten it.

My handbrake is not holding on a hill brakes seem fine I want to do it my self please help


YOU WILL NEED A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL OR FACTORY MANUAL ON CD.BECAUSE ON BMW YOU HAVE TO REMOVE CENTER CONSOLE AND ARMREST TO GAIN ACCESS TO THE PARKING BRAKE LEVER. PARKING BRAKE CABLE CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS A RIGHT AND LEFT HAND SECTION, WHICH ARE CONNECTED TO THE LEVER.YOU HAVE TO LOOSEN REMOVE THE RELEVANT PARKING BRAKE CABLE LOCKNUT AND ADJUSTING NUT AND DISENGAGE THE INNER CABLE FROM THE PARKING BRAKE LEVER. IF YOU FIND A HAYNES BMW REPAIR MANUAL WITH HAND BRAKES.THAT WILL SHOW AND TELL YOU STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION HOW TO ADJUST PARKING BRAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENT. I COULD TELL YOU HOW TO DO THE JOB. BUT YOU NEED TO SEE PHOTOS AND INSTRUCTIONS BECAUSE YOU NEED TO SEE WHERE YOU NEED TO MAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENTS.NOT EASY TO TELL YOU.

Tightening the handbrake


the first thing to do is to slacken the handbrake adjuster on the lever off completely.then if you have rear drum brakes remove the drums and make sure that the handbrake levers on the shoes are not siezed and are returning to the stops plus that the auto adjusters are not siezed if not free them off so they are using wd40 or whatever and the linings/drums are ok then reasemble and pump the brake pedal a few times to let the auto adjusters work then readjust the lever to about 5 to 7 clicks if you have got rear discs then one off the rear calipers may have siezed or both handbrake cables should also be checked for being siezed
