Ever since i bought my car the emergency brake has not worked right. It is really hard to engage because it seems very loose. If I park on a hill it will usually not engage enough to hold the car in place so I have to leave the car in a gear along with the brake which i hate to do. Is there any was to tighten the thing myself or am I going to have to get it fixed at a shop? I was just wondering because it really annoys me to have to fight with the thing just to have it barely tighten. Thankx to all suggestions.
