Default e-brake

I have to pull my e-brake all the way to the last notch, if its to the second to last notch it wont hold the car on the hill, but if its to the very last notch it will.... Is there an adjustment to this?

You should be able to gain access to the adjustment from inside the Arm rest in the center console.

hey,

last visit at Volvo,

I ended up gettin a new brake booster or power cylinder, a new abs module, and a new power steering resavoir...

Can this improve gas mileage by 6-7 miles more per gallon?
