E36 Rear Brakes E36 HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there everyone,

Hopefully someone will know what I'm talking about in the diagram below

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Part 7 which is the pin with a spring attached pushes into the Plate on the car and you twist it for it to stay in place normally, What has happened on my car though is that the Plate you push the Pin into has rusted and cannot therefore support the pin anymore so the Whole drum Assembly is not secured properly.

I need to know if anyone knows of a repair to fix this even if it is just a temporary fix?

Thank You.

RE: quick fix

Yeah, take off all the ebrake parts until you get the final answer, ie either welding it up and re-drilling and making a new opening that works....

You can live without the E-brake for a long time, park, put it in gear, etc...

Probably too late to help you...
