Comments: There shloud be mentioned u should look for a starwheel and if u should push the starwheel up or pull down to tighten or loosen the shoes, i saw this system for first time so i ended up loosening the break, i need to redo it tomorrow althought the manual is quite easy to understand.

Comments: I was looking on ProDemand, and was not able to locate the service lock and did not feel like removing plastic under the car to figure out where it was. I went on Pelican Parts website, and found this article that clearly showed me where the service lock was situated INSIDE the car. Adjustement was a breeze

Comments: Followed your guide and it is excellent. Everything went as described and the only trouble I had was depressing the service spring, by gum that takes some force to compress! I got the brakes dismantled and rebuilt with no parts left over and they work properly so I must have done it right. As I had the discs off the car I took the opportunity to clean the rust off the centres and give them a lick of paint so there is actually something to show for my hard work.

Comments: I just fitted new handbrake shoes and new discs, before fitting I put the handbrake in service mode, I ADJUSTED THEM AS YOU MENTION IN STEPS 5 AND 6. I still have a very long travel on the handbrake lever, is there anyway I can take up the slack.

Comments: I just fitted new handbrake shoes and new discs, before fitting I put the handbrake in service mode, I fully adjusted the shoes and released them to allow the wheels to rotate freely, I still have a very long travel on the handbrake lever, is there anyway I can take up the slack.

Comments: I drive a 2008 BMW 328i with automatic transmission. I went to get a tire changed, and the mechanic told me to pull the e-brake so I did. He changed the tire and I got back in, started up the car and put it in drive. I pressed the gas petal and tried to accelerate. There was heavy resistance and it stuttered as I tried to drive out of the tire shop lot. My fuel gauge was at E so I figured it was the low gas. I drive across the street to a gas station and fill her up. I start it up once again and put it into drive. I step on the gas and nothing happens at all. It’s stationary. When I was at the tire shop it actually drove. Not this time. I tried the gas about 3 times, each at about 2k rpms. This is when I finally realized that I still had the e-brake on. So I disengaged the e-brake and drove home. Now, it I have to brake harder than usual to stop completely, the car doesn’t take off as good as it used to, when idling it rocks the car a little, and I might hear some engine knock sometimes. Also, the steering wheel is jittery, it moves right and left, back and forth really fast about a half inch while I’m driving but it doesn’t seem to move the car on its own. What’s wrong and how do I fix it?

Comments: thanks for the guide. Although I tighten the star wheel till the end the tires still move freely, i did change the rotors & pads last year and didn’t do adjustment. My e-brake is not working and tightening does not resolve the issue? Possible Worn parking shoes?

I have a bmw e90 2007 I’m facing problem with the brake when first time you use it the brake pedal is too hard and if you go backward it look like the car braking itself and if you drive it and brake it you can feel that the car is braking from one side and car start taking left and right unstable so I park a side and apply a strong press on the brake pedal then the brake will go back to normal and I you stop it for a while again same issue
