On average, the cost for a BMW 1600 Parking Brake Release Cable Replacement is $665 with $285 for parts and $380 for labor. Prices may vary depending on your location.
Your parking brake only plays a role in safety after parking your car, but it’s an important part of automotive equipment. When you engage the brake, either by pulling the handle between the two front seats or pressing the pedal on the driver side, it engages a secondary braking system designed to help hold your car in place and alleviate unwanted pressure on your transmission.
You need to release the brake before you can safely drive once more, and this is where the parking brake release cable comes into play. Depending on the setup in your specific vehicle, you’ll either push a release button, or push the pedal again to activate the release cable and disengage the parking brake. Without an operational brake cable, the e-brake won’t disengage, which can be problematic. Driving with the brake on is never a good idea.
If your parking brake release cable is not working and the brake is engaged, do not drive the vehicle. That will only damage the braking system and increase your repair bill. One of our experienced mechanics will often be able to fix the problem in short order.
Having a working parking brake release cable is important. Without one, you won’t be able to use your parking brake (or disengage the brake if it’s on). We recommend you work with our expert mechanics who can diagnose the problem.
