Thumbs up

Hi! I got a 318i 1998 (E36) for a month now. Since I got it, when the hand brake is on, the car makes a weird sound. If I enter the car or get out of it, I can notice a "SKWEEK SKWEEK" sound...

I had that repaired by the dealership while it was still on warranty... they dismount the rear brakes, put grease or something like this in... The problem diseappeared for... 1 week... Now it's back...

Any idea what I should check at? By the way, they adjusted my hand brake because it was too loose and now, 2 weeks after, the hand brake is loose again... can't park if the ground isn't flat!? Can it be my rear rotors??

Thanks!

Henri

That's what I'll do... Friday morning, I'll leave them my car hoping they would change the 4 rotors... dunno if it will be covered by warranty...

Anyway... I love that car

Damn... need help!

They changed the rotors... fine. This morning, I started the car and 2 lights were still on: ABS and the Control Traction icon...

What's wrong? Any idea... I'm tired of going to that dealership... ???

Thanks!
