you can tighten the parking brake by removing the leather around the parking break lever and tightening the bolt at the end.

are you saying to try performing the adjustment only at the handle and to not adjust the cog at the wheel? i have been reading that you should always adjust both, not sure why. sorry but I havent done this before...thx

I only tightened the bolt at the handle and it worked. Mind you it was in the 318..but I dont think my 330 would be any different.

Dont take my word for it, if you hear differently then research it. It might also depend on how loose it is

Actually while we're on the brake subject. Whenever I use the parking brake it sometimes keeps rubbing after I release it. Do I have to loosen, lubricate, or replace something?
