    W209 Parking Brake Adjustment and Pedal Return Issue

    I've browsed various forums and threads and haven't been able to solve this. First of all is the adjustment.

    W209 CLK 320 Brake Woes

    I've had a long standing problem with the parking brake with the foot pedal not springing back once released.
