    hello there ..I am having a few problems with my handbrake and after adjusting the hbrake bolts from inside the car its now started to slip again!. After looking at these pelican pics do you need to do this on both sides? I have seen pics were you can adjust the hbrake through one of the wheelbolt holes with a screwdriver?. Any help much appreciated . Thanks james

    Thats exactly it, slacken both the nuts on the handbrake cables then with a screwdriver through the wheelbolt holes tighten the cog on the adjuster....
    Full instructions are in this link..http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/tech...Adjustment.htm
