    Hi all this is my first post, been in and had a look a few times over the years and now i need some advise on my 1999 323i saloon handbrake.
    Ive just finished the front brakes as ive had the motor for nearly 3 years and the brakes were getting worn, discs pitted and the bushes are needing replaced. Im fitting PADGID stuff on all four corners.
    About to start on the rear end and need some advice on the handbrake ie is there a link to a video on how to do this task ive already viewed the pelican tech page on this procedure any tips/trick on the best way to go with removing/fitting.

    Also i noticed a couple of days before i took the car off the road, when turning a bend/corner i was having to turn the steering wheel alot more to get around bends/corners it this just the front rear wishbone bushes? or the track rod end? or the wishbone, any ideas
    cheers people.

    Hey buck...Welcome to bimmerforums...

    Not had a go at the rear brakes, being honest with you but our wonderful cars do have some inherent faults like front bushes and rear trailing arm bushes. Track rod ends would give you a wandery car and feel. Not sure if it would effect the amount of effort involved in turning corners...

    mate if it is the same as the e36 all you need to do is adjust it the shoes last forever depending on what side you do all you do is remove one wheel nut turn the wheel 60 degrees back from 0 ie straight up and if you shine a torch in the hole you will see a small adjuster ring. flick it round with a screwdriver till the wheel goes tight then back it off a wee bit job done repeat on other side. ps keep handbrake off while adjusting hope this helps
