The parking Brake Assembly Located In The Trunk Of The 2002 bmw 745i, Is Faulty. The Gears Inside The Assembly Are Made Of Plastic And Nylon. When The Nylon Gear Breaks, And It Will, You Will No Longer Be Able To Use Your parking Brake. I Brought My Car To bmw Of Honolulu Today And Was Told That The Part Was About $1100.00. The Service Advisor Even Told Me That He Had Seen 4 Of The 7 Series With The Same Problem In The Past Month. I Have To Drive Around With This Yellow parking Light On My Dash. This Is A Safety Issue That bmw Should Take Of. This Could Easily Be Remedied By bmw Replacing The Nylon Gear With A More Durable One, But They Would Rather Have The Consumer Buy The Entire Unit For $1100.00, Then Pay Another $200-$300 For Labor. *tr
