Step 2: Fix the brakes

The parking/emergency brake uses cables and actuators, not hydraulics. The left side is broken, has no resistance to tension on the cable, and since the system relies on a tension "equalizer" between left and right side, this effectively breaks the entire system. They call these "emergency" brakes?

The brake pads are nearly exhausted.

I changed the oil.
