Some Slight Movement When Park Brake On And In "n"

Recommended Posts

Hi again

Can anyone tell me if it's normal for the car to slightly move when the park brake in engaged fully and transmission in neutral?

I was told by a friend of mine, that it should move a bit.

When you guys are in your 'F' next, can you do me a favour and when you are on a slight hill/incline. Engage the park brake and transmission in 'N'. Can you tell me if there is some slight movement of the car?

I believe the car shouldn't move a bit?

Both my RX350 and Mercedes move a few centimetres when parked on an incline. I don't think it's a problem - I assume the brakes need a slight bit of wheel rotation to "catch".

Both of my IS250's do not move when park brake is applied on a hill with gearshifter on neutral.

You should just get the park brakes adjusted again on your next service.
