ok my e brake on my gagt is not working. for one thing the e brake handle button is stuck out so when i go to put the e brke up it does not stay up. i figured i prolly need a new handle? also when im driving and i pull up on the e brake the pass. side will grab way before the drivers side. so how do i adjust the parking brake when it has disc brakes. i have the caliper off and the rotor and i see the adjuster but i turn it both ways and it does not seem to be doing anything?

then check the cable.. maybe it's broken, or not hooked up correctly.

the cable is fine. with my handle in the car with the button being stuck out does that mean i need a new handle?

maybe you should take apart the center console and check it out.
are you saying it doesnt lock when up, or your e-brake handle doesn't engage the brakes?

it doesnt lock. the button on the end of the handle sticks way out

well idk.
i don't even use my e-brake.
sounds like it is in the handle though... you might have to go take it apart to find your problem.

yea..just take out the center console and look at the brake handle assembly.. it sounds like somethings busted in the handle if it moves freely.. just go to the junkyard and pick one up
