Parking brake adjustment
The parking brake pedal on my 560 is now getting to the point where it's rediculously stiff. It's been getting worse over the course of about a year, and it's now getting to the point where it's absurd.
It also doesn't disengage properly; the parking brake itself will disengage, but there's enough slack in the pedal that if I don't hold it up with my foot for a minute or two after I start driving, it'll fall down far enough to put the parking brake light on, which is really irritating...
So, how do I go about adjusting the parking brake?
