Hi this is my first post and im wondering how to remove the oem e-brake handle on a 94 325is. I know how to remove the shift knob but i haven't found out how to remove the ebrake handle. I want to remove it so that i can add an AC Schnitzer handle.
Thanks.

you adjust the tension of the cables under the car (thats where I did it at least) b/c mine was only catching in the last bit of the lever... hope that maybe helps

hey man i have almost exactly the same car, except mine is a '92. Where is the adjustment under the car for the ebrake? I thought it was only under the trim piece by the e-brake handle ...

thanks

My e-brake must be really stubborn because i twisted the black tip all the way off and pulled as hard as i could to take off the handle. It didn't even budge. Any suggestions?
