I was backing my xB out today and I touched the E-Brake to put it on and It's kind of loose. Like I can kind of flap at and it moves up and down easily. It doesn't activate right away which is good but I'm worried ill be rolling and itll lock up. Any ideas of what might be going on would be wonderful.

it wont just lock up on you rolling down the road but when your parked on a hill in neutral you'll notice you'll have to have your e brake pulled tighter than usual to be parked. but when on a hill you should always have wheel cocked towards the curb as well as having it in gear(if in manual transmission)

It's normal for the hand brake to have some initial travel before it starts seriously resisting. I'm not sure what would be spec, but I'm thinking at least an inch would be just fine (maybe two inches).

Some of the people in my Scikotics group replied, I guess the E-brake may be loose on the actual rotor, I need to tighten it or something and turn it with a screw driver. Basically I found out what the issue is. Thanks again!
