Hi all. Is there a quick/easy way to adjust the handbrake travel on my E46 330ci auto? My drive is really steep and the lever is pulling up a fair way. Car is due an Inspection in 6600 miles so I can get it done then, but if there's a quick fix in the meantime it would be useful. Any sensible comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
