Hello
Some times I must pull my car's parking break handle just 3 or 4 click and it blocks the rear wheels and some times it must be pulled more than 5 click to make break.
I mean the parking break handle level for making break and block the wheels acts different. Some times 3-4 click and some times more(up to 7 click). I don't understand why it's not stable and all the time make the break by for example 4 or 5 click? What should be checked or repair of this system?
Recently I've changed rear break pads and I'm sure of being healthy of them.
Thank you
H. Ebrahimi

Check the handbrake cable adjustment. It must has sufficient free play for the system to work correctly. Ensure the cables are not stuck for any sides.
