Hello, I am hoping that someone can tell me where the emergency handbrake release is on my L320 RR Sport 2012. All of the You Tube clips seem to show a different center console setup. I have taken the handbrake switch out and I can't see it anywhere under there. Any ideas? Thank you

The concept is the same, the emergency release cable is under your cup holder. You may have to hunt for it a bit.

If you can't find it from the top, I found it easier to unplug the emergency release cable from the bottom (underneath the car) and pulling on it.

Worked well for me.

The emergency release on a Sport is a cable with a loop on the end. One of Umberto's posts states it takes 45 pounds of pull to release it. The cable can slide off to the side or under the edge of something.

Here's the first hit using search

Here the second hit on the search function...

There's a small round plug right between the two front cup holders, pry it out with a small screwdriver. Then, use the long handle in the tool compartment under the trunk floor next to the scissors jack, the one with a hook on one end. Insert the hooked end of the handle into the opening between the two cup holders and hook it into the loop of the emergency brake release cable, which should be clearly visible through the opening after you remove the plug (if it's dark you can use a flashlight, but it's sticking out and fairly easy to see and hook up.) Pull up hard. Say a prayer.

Yes, that will be why I could not find it. I will have a look when I get home. Thank you for this.
