My hand-break is very loose and wanted to adjust it so that I can apply the breaks properly with 4-5 clicks. Right now I have to pull up and there is about 11 clicks before it is fully engaged.
I have 96 328.
Is there any DIY anywhere (link) or someone please explain the procedure.
I checked pelican but does not have it.

Appreciate any help.

I think it depends on how used up the brake pads are.

Give this a try: http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/techarticl..._Adjustment.htm

I haven't done it, but I probably should soon, mine's in about the same shape as yours. Post again if it works out. Good luck!
