BMW Parking Brake Parts
BMW is celebrated for their quality, which has encased their brand for decades. They have developed a distinct vehicle selection with exceptional designs, all with an assurance to create an original product line. BMW still manufactures quality driven and produced vehicles. They have an amazing reputation, which has allowed them to develop their brand into an auto industry leader, and more specifically, with their parking brake parts and components. Your BMW’s emergency brake, which is usually referred to as the parking brake, manages the rear brakes through a series of steel cables that are linked to either a hand lever or foot pedal. Your BMW’s emergency brake can manually stop your vehicle, even if there is complete brake failure from your hydraulic system, which usually is accountable for stopping your vehicle. If your BMW has a manual transmission, the emergency brake needs to be used to stop your vehicle from rolling when it is parked. On BMW’s with automatic transmissions, putting your car in the "Park" position will keep your vehicle stopped. This causes many people to not use their emergency brake, but if the emergency brake is bot being used, a lot of issues may come about. In some cases, your BMW can spin out, as the brake cables on the left and right sides of the car are joined to a lever linkage called, an equalizer yoke. The equalizer yoke is linked to a single cable that runs to the emergency brake lever or pedal, and balances the amount of force that is put into both cables when the emergency brake is pulled. If you have questions about BMW’s parking brake parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are always close by.

If one cable in your BMW freezes up, only one wheel will lock. While this should not produce an issue when the emergency brake is used for parking, it could produce a brake imbalance. The imbalance would likely force one wheel to lock up and skid, which would send the vehicle spinning. Not using the emergency brake can force the cables in your BMW that are connecting the rear brakes to the emergency brake to get rusted and corroded. If not fixed, you will not be able to brake in emergency situations or to keep your BMW from rolling down a hill when parking. If your brake does not release, this can happen when brake cables freeze up and become rusted due to lack of use, as well.
