    Hey!

    Can a loose parking brake be adjusted simply by tightening down the two cable nuts at the handbrake boot? My Bentley Manual, every DIY video I've found, and my forum researching all walk me through a standard adjustment procedure of re-adjusting the star wheel at the parking brake shoes, etc...

    Anyone think there's any possible way the wood handbrake trim from the E60 could be retrofitted to our cars? Swapping my car over to smoke poplar, but it looks like handbrake trim was never made in this color for us :confused: P/N for the E60 part is 34400302393.

One day I pulled it as far up as I could because I was on a hill and when I was ready to leave and had to push the handbrake...

    Hey all, Since I purchased my car 2000 miles ago (61k now), I noticed that when I park and pull up the E-brake (hand brake), the car still rolls. I have to pull the brake ALL the way up, until maybe the last 2 or 3 "clicks" where it can't go up any more, for the car to not roll. I think it...
