I did this and turned the bolt until it couldnt go an further physicaly. It was at the end of the threads. I works wonders now.

But considering I went all the way to the threads, I would argue that taking the interior apart got someone a tighter ebrake. To the end of the threads is the end of the threads.

Unless you enjoy tinker toying around and taking stuff apart for the fun of it, you dont need to do the proceedure in this thread! Nice write up for future reference if someone needs to get into there for another reason though.
Like I said before the deep socket WOULD NOT WORK. It would not fit all the way down onto the nut. I was stuck at home with the snow and had the time to do it. I would have gone a bought a deeper socket had I not had time. Had I known people would have been d|cks I would not have wasted my time on this write-up. I was just trying to help people understand how things go together and come apart.

Almost everyone complains about their e-brake. I was offering them an option to fix it.

I wouldn't recommend having it all the way down as I did, it broke my emergency brake completely.

HOWEVER find anohter 10 mm nut and put it ontop the other one, tighten that one all the way down and smile at the results, its badass.

Thanks man. And the results are great. My e-brake went all the way back. It touched the back of the slot for the handle. It was pointing at my map lights. It still worked, but barely.

i did that the other day. got the nut as tight as it can go, still takes about 10 clicks to engage, and it still sucks...meaning i could put a bic pen on either side of the tire and it'll hold better that just the e-brake.

thanks for the writeup sje0123. i thought it was a great writeup. even though my e-brake is fine, i can refer to this if i ever need to take out my console.
