Well, I left school this after noon and everything was fine, the parking brake disengauged just fine with no fuss. I get home and pull up on the lever it doesnt latch but I can hear and feel the brakes compressing. Anyone know whats wrong and the quickest way to fix it? I think its either the button or the gear in the lever that gone wrong. Irritating.... :comp:

Interesting... My E-brake failed on me once: parked on a slight decline to hit up an ATM, left it in neutral, pulled the E-brake and when I was behind my car walking to the ATM, the damn thing tried to run me over! I freaked and jumped into the Goat ASAP to stop it. Thank God I left my windows down so it was quick and easy to get in. Now I always park it in gear.

Anyways, sorry I'm no help to you. GL finding the fix, though!

happened to me several months ago and still havent got it fixed. You have to get the replacement handle from a dealer.

yep, this happened to monaro_gto too a few weeks ago. His car started slowly rolling down my driveway locked in first gear on Saturday, sort of scary. With that being said, get it fixed quick as just locking it in gear won't stop them from rolling.

Warranty was up about 10k miles ago. I placed to order and it was $84 and then installation will run another 220. I could do it myself but I just dont have the time.
