Hand brake problem

This is exactly what happened today(September 22nd 2015) A guy turned up out of the blue and told us the story about how he nearly lost his car. He parked the BMW on a hill, pulled on the handbrake and as he started to exit the car, it started to roll back down the hill.

Lucky for him, the guy was  agile and shot back into he car and put on the foot brake. With a very fast beating heart he drove the car straight to my garage here in Halifax UK.

When we examined the Hand brake problem

 We found that it had discs all the way round. The hand brake on this model is connected to the disc by a small brake drum.

So, the drum completely rusted up and was completely ineffective, it just did not work?

We explained that this BMW Hand brake problem could have been picked up at a brake service. After a good clean up and some new shoes, the BMW Hand brake problem was solved and the guy went on his way.
