Hi, thank you for your help. My question is - How far down should you have to press the pedal down to engage the barake - the dealership is telling me to push it all the way down to the floor. I have never seen a parking brake go all the way to the floor unless it doesn't work. Please advise me on this - it used to go down only half way or three qqurters before replacement.

I appreciate your efforts but the question I asked is pretty clear and simple - is the parking brake supposed to go all the way down? Halfway down? Or three quarters down?
This is of course with the car stopped and in neutral or park.
