Emergency Brake Issue
I had an issue with my emergency brake today. Usually I press the brake (located on the left side of the brake) and hear/feel 2-3 clicks before depressing my foot. I always hit the brake before using the emergency brake. I should also note that I use the emergency brake often because where I live there are hills and if I don't use it, the car will lunge forward upon releasing my foot from the brake while putting it in park.
Anyway tonight I did the same procedure and when I heard the third click, the emergency brake pedal went all the way down to the floor. The light lit up as normal on the dash, but it felt weird at the third click and also looked weird.
I ended up pressing it again and it went back to the normal (non emergency brake position) but this has me worried.
Has anyone had this happen to them? If so, what was your outcome? (e.g. broken pedal). If not, any speculations?
As always thank you in advance for any insight.
