How do you disassemble the rear brake light cover so you can replace the brake light bulb on an '03 Mazda Protege 5?
You have to go inside the trunk and remove the circular plastic covers from behind the lights. Then you have to unscrew the entire light and you can access the bulbs to replace them.
How do you replace the emergency brake cable on a 95 Toyota pickup 5 speed if the cable broke in the handle near the 'S' shape of the cable?
The Toyota handbrake cable is attached to the botton of your handbrak with a barrel crimp. if you look at the bottom of the handbrake shaft inside the tube it runs in you will see a white teflon slide, just bellow this if you twist the pistol grip you will see the barrel end. I assume the roller nee…ds to be removed to insert the new cable, I havn't gotten arround to replacement yet. good Luck Miek (MORE)
Answer . \nI know that there is a black cable underneath the car. You could see one running to the fron brakes and another to the back. In the middle you will be able to see where the 2 cables join. To tighten you have to adjust the slack on it one way. To loosen, you go the other way. Hope this… helps. (MORE)
Don't you think it would help if you told us what make and model of car this is ? This subject is too important to your safety to try and guess or generalize !
Answer . \nI hope this might help, I have dish network and before I asked the same thing too. My dad has cable, I have dish, so who is better? Well we both get basically the same channels in a day to day basis, but there is a better plan difference. I have dish, DSL, Phone through Sprint. Mmmmm.….... so does my dad. He has cable tv, phone, and road runner all for about $84.00 a month!!! I can beat that cause my bill is $104.00 a month for the same features.\n. \nNow you might say, bad weather you loose your signal on dish. Yeah your right about that! Well when bad weather comes not only will your cable be effected, but if you loose power like me and my dad in hurricane Rita, my dad had no cable, internet, or phone because it works through the cable modem. At least my phone worked so I can call the emergency crew, my dad had to you his cell phone, but even at that the network was down and he couldn't get a signal.\n. \nWay your odds, I picked the phone with Sprint cause it never failed yet!\n. \nKeo (MORE)
You replaced the rear pads on your 1999 Ford Focus but the brakes are binding the cable doesnt seem to have enough slack and the tightening nut is as loose as it will get?
Make sure that the rear brake adjusters were backed all the way off when fitting new pads. Once complete adjust up pads if manual adjuster or rely on automatic adjusters to do this, then adjust brake cable.
In dash brake light and epc light stays on had to pull the factory stereo out to install satellite radio and now the dash lights stays on did somewhere a cable get pulled loose?
Brake Warning Light on super beetle . I am rewiring a 71 super beetle. So far I have connected one of those half as wide connectors on a red wire to the K lug on that little light.. Black power wire coming from a green wire on the emergency flasher pin #15 should connecto to the little #15 lug. … A Blue wire should connecto to the little #61 lug. This wire comes from main harness and GEN warning light on speedo.. One or all of these wires with tiny connectors should ne hanging around in there somewhere.. Good luck. (MORE)
take off the tire remove the caliper replace the brake disc if necessary and replace brake pads on the calipers reassemble do this for every tire to wish to change at that time
Answer . Odds are it's probably not just your Mazda. Most vehicles do that when the rotor is shot or warp\ped. The rotor is the big disc (or cd) that the disc brakes apply pressure to when you push your breaks. When the surface is warped or shot, the surface is no longer smooth, causing what …can be a shimmy shake. You can tell by taking off your tire, and by rubbing your finger up and down the rotor. If you feel a lip or rough edge from the edge towards the inside, then it's the rotor. They are generally about $20-$30 to replace. Otherwise it could be that one or both of the wheel bearings are shot. (MORE)
Use the appropriate socket on the nut and tighten it. Make sure the cable is in the correct position first.
Answer . If they are of the "peel off" type Remove wheels Remove caliper mounting bolts Slide calipers off rotor Slide rotor off hub
Emergency brake cable doesn't workWhenI push down on the e-brake it goes to the floor but will not hold the car from moving in gear.?
Answer . 1st adjust the rear service brakes Then check parking brake if still does not hold Adjustment should be at the junction of the cables under vehicle Set to "3" clicks and adjust so vehicle is held in place at that point
With the hood up look at the firewall on the driver side and there will be a black cable aproximately 3/8 inch thick that will go down and be fastened to the firewall with clips and and run along the left hand side frame rail and go to the transmission and connect to it on the left hand side with a …hexagon nut style.To remove it just loosen and pull free and lubricrate it with some white lithium grease(napa sells this in a container) or use wheel bearing grease as a substitute works fine.If your speedometer needle is jumping or slow working after doing do this you need to remove the gauge cluster which is 4 screws on the facing two screws underneath the clear cover and two underneath at the steering column and pull the cluster out(note you need the cable to be disconnected and pull the slack from the engine compartment forward )when you do this so you can disconnect the cable going to the guage itself to lubricate it at the gauge.Just put a good finger amount of grease into the cable end going to the speedometer cable that will connect to the gauge and reinstall,wipe the excess off,and the same goes for the connection at the transmission.I will assume what I stated is the issue with a delayed response of the needle on the gauge,or noise you hear from the gauge while driving which is not uncommon due to needing to be greased.

Parking/emergency brake? It's just what it sounds like Avid makes these; they go on the left side of the frame--where the derailleur is not. Avid also makes hydraulic ones. I haven't heard it called exactly CABLE ACTUATED but disc brakes come in either hydraulic or mechanical styles. Hydrauli…c disc brakes have brake fluid and a compression line connecting the caliper to the lever with a fluid reservoir. This means you'll eventually have to have your line bled down the road and do more maintenence than on a mechanical brake. Mechanical disc brakes use a cable to activate the braking. The main difference is in the feel of the hydraulic brake. It has a smoother motion and the rider doesn't have to change the power of his grip for more braking power. The mechanical caliper does require more power in the lever to hold the brake closed. But on the plus side, the maintenence is very small. (MORE)
Answer . First make that service brakes are adjusted properly Adjuster should either be at the junction of the cables under vehicle or at the handle (may have to remove trim for access) itself. Set brake to 3 clicks and tighten adjuster nut so wheels are locked at this point
How do you get piston in rear brake caliper to retract back into the caliper so you can change pads on a 2002 Mazda protege 5?
There is a 14 mm bolt on back of caliper. Remove this & use a 4 mm Allen wrench to back piston into caliper.
On these cares its pretty simple... - remove wheel - remove two bolts that hold the caliper -the pads could be removed then - then there are two bolts that hold the bracket that holds the caliper, remove those. -once removed the rotor should be loose so you just slide it off, if not hit it wit a h…ammer a couple times since it might be rusted and stuck. do this backwards to re-install (MORE)
runs out the back of the dash, under the firewall, and in the top of the transmission.
Well what do you want to know about them? You probably have rear discs. With a properly hooked up, and working system you should easily be able to lock up the rear wheels with the flick of the wrist. There are 4 adjustment points, one on each wheel cylinder, one below the shifter under the car, and …one inside the e-brake. You have to pull the plastic off to get to the last one, just push the skinny side in and it will pop out, it should be simple. They stretch over the years so the adjustment inside will be easiest. If you are changing the rear pads you will need a brake adjustment tool, you basically have to turn the cylinder back into the caliper. (MORE)
The use of coaxial cables makes it hard to hide wiring becausethey are usually not color coded to match paint colors. There isalso a chance for breakage within the cable itself that will takehours to determine and fix. A pro to coaxial cabling is the factthat there is no chance for interference with… the alternative Wi-Ficonnection. It is also easier to steal an Internet connection fromWi-Fi than it is a cable connection. . ++++ All data and r.f. lines including arial down-leads should be eitherco-axial or screened - the colour of the sheath is immaterial,though most such cables are black, grey or white/beige.

It's just a typical pad change, , except the pistons SCREW IN, rather than push in. You need a special driver tool that can be purchased at any auto parts store. Screw the pistons in CLOCKWISE on both sides of the car to make clearance for the new pads. Hope this helps. Tom. It's just a typical pad… change, , except the pistons SCREW IN, rather than push in.

AFAIK that means a malfunction in the Electronic Brake Distribution System. It may be a temporary glitch, take the car to a dealer and ask them to scan the error codes to diagnose the problem.
go to this site all the info you need is here www.miata.net/garage/brakepad.html follow these inst and you will be fine quite a easy job
The emergency brake cable is held in place with swivel nuts on eachend of the cable. Turn the swivel nuts to the left. The emergencybrake cable will come off.
Your emergency break will move without any resistance and will not hold your car in place when stopped.
go underneath the vehicle with two wrenches. tighten up the adjust ment nut, it might be on a turnbuckle, or right off the e brake handle
I am trying to sign in, however, you site want allow me, it takes me for an orbit into outter space. Very wiered site!
This is never an easy job and should only be done after checking the particular vehicle manual. There are many different types of emergency or parking brake cables and many are even in 2 or 3 parts. I would urge you to get a manual for the car you have and do repairs as it shows. I have been an exp…erienced aircraft and vehicle technician for many years and would't dream of doing any except the most simple repairs without the proper manual. (MORE)
Pour it into the brake fluid reservoir. It is in front of the brake booster. If you don't know where that is then take it to a service center before you have major problems.
check first how the cable system is assembled. Usually it is contains front,right and left cables.You will need to take of your wheels(rear) and drums. Then you'll see everything else. Simple with some rusty fight. With regards, Anton Pinkhassov.
How do you open the hood when the cable brakes on a 1997 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme. the cable broke loose at the latch?
i had the same problem. the hood release is controlled by a cable. what i had to do was take off the cover by the driver side seat,grab the cable with a pair of vise gripps and pull the wire in the cable with a pair of pliers. it sounds crude but that's the only way to get the hood up. by the way,i …would take it somewhere to get the cable replaced.it's buried!!!!!

On the top of the transmission. I leads into the fire wall so it should be easy to find.
You buy bicycle brake cables, either from a bicycle store, or from an internet source. If you need to be told this you probably need to be told how to install them as well, so go look at www.bicycletutor.com, www.parktool.com or www.sheldonbrown.com
1. If this is a drum braked solution, then first make sure that the shoes have been cleaned centred and that the auto -adjuster has taken them as far as they need to be adjusted. . 2. Under the car, below the handbrake, where the handbrake cable comes to a half-moon shaped balancing plate, you will… find a knurled adjuster. Adjust that until the front half of the cable is tight again, but also such that the wheels do not prematurely bind. It is a compromise between handbrake pull-height and binding. If there is a choice - make sure the wheels do not bind. . If this is a disc braked rear solution, remove the rear plug on the backing plate of the rear disks, and back off the shoes (yes shoes!) until there is no binding, then back forward until fully locked, then click back up to 3 clicks to release the disc. Put back the plug, repeat for the other side. Make sure they are equally close to the point of binding, but not actually binding. If you havent done this before repeat it until you are really satisified. Then undertake step (2) above. (MORE)
Its very easy. You can look by the brake pedal and there is a release lever with a hole in it. just pull the lever towards you and it will release.
When materials heat up they expand. \nWhen they cool down they contract.\n \n \nIf the telephone cable was made tight on a hot day, then they would get very very tight on a cold day, and would stretch (thus making them loose), or perhaps break. Repeated heating and cooling cycles would undoubtedly …cause premature failure. Keep in mind that while you may see a large bundle of wires, the individual strands are quite small.\n \n \nAlso, the tension required to keep say a 50 foot or 100 foot stretch of wire from drooping is far greater than the tension required if it is allowed to droop a bit, thus you have less stress on the wires with a little sagging.\n \n \nOne final note. Copper is an excellent conductor, thus is commonly used for phone cables. But, it is heavy, and it is also quite malleable, and thus prone to stretching and deformation which could lead to failure.

Be sure to purchase the correct bulbs first before executing this repair. See sources and related links below for bulb information. Open up the rear hatch. On the very innermost edge of the taillight assembly that was under the closed hatch you will notice that there are two black, oval shaped co…vers approximately 1.25" high by .75" wide or 32mm by 20mm. Remove these small covers with a small flat screwdriver or other pointed implement and a screw will be found underneath each one. Remove both screws with a #2 Phillips screwdriver. With screws removed pull the entire plastic tail light housing straight outward towards the rear of the vehicle to release the outer retaining clips. The bulb sockets are removed by rotating counterclockwise 45 degrees and pulling out of the tail light housing. . (MORE)
A loose battery cable can cause the battery to not be able to receive a charge from the alternator. This can run the battery down. Will it kill the battery? Yes and no. Draining the battery once will do very little harm but it will do some. Run it down a few times and you can ruin the battery. Auto …batteries are designed to be kept charged and are not designed to be run down and recharged like a deep cell marine battery or golf cart battery. (MORE)
You don't normally adjust in the brake drum. There is usually an adjuster about halfway to the back, under the driver side. This is an oblong metal frame where the front cable joins the cable to the rear splitter. You tighten a nut in this box to adjust length of cable.
I'm assuming by park brake you're talking about the emergency brake system, there is usually a 'pin' type setup underneath the vehicle where the brake handle is above it which can be pulled out that will 'release' the brake. Have a look under it.
Overhead cables are heated by the Sun during the day causing them to expand. During the night, the overhead cables will contract.
Hard starting, corrosion at terminals, eventually cause a weak charge on the battery from cranking too much, will not start at all, can cause your carburetor to flood.
Id re-submit your question and include the make, model, year and type of vehicle you're asking about. Here is a generic answer however: Its probably a fuse or burnt out bulb situation rather than anything else. If the vehicle is a car or truck and you identify its a bulb issue, see sources and rela…ted links below. If its not a fuse or bulb, then its probably the switch, not a cable adjustment. On cars and trucks, the switch is by the brake pedal. (MORE)
Since no model year was given for the Mazda 5, here is the general procedure for brake light bulb replacement: Purchase the correct replacement brake light bulb(s) first, before disassembling the vehicle. See sources and related links below for replacement brake light bulb information. Then consult …your owner's manual for the replacement procedure. As simple as it sounds, the owner's manual is the best place to start for brake light bulb replacement instructions and illustrations. You may want to consider replacing both left and right at the same time in order to keep brightness and color equal (optional). (MORE)
Doing this right now, very difficult,following manual instructions.Basically Dash to be removed to gain access to heater box nuts.Requires removal of centre consoul, Glove box,Steering column andAir bags which i have done. I stopped at the suggestion ofdegassing the Aircon, and successfully removed …the old cables afterraising the heater box slightly, removed the insulation between theheater box and firewall stuggled for an hour loosening the bridgingplate and pulled the cables through into the drivers side floorspace. Putting it all back tomorrow, wish me luck. In hindsightwould have happilly paid Mazda dealership to tackle this one.Disgraceful design. Should get rid of car once repaired, could notgo through this again. (MORE)
Depends on what its for. A pro race bike will have a rear brake, but not a pro vert bike.
all you do is you dismantle the whole thing and then put it back together, but disconnect the e-brake cable and connect it to the front brakes and automatically it will apply to the back wheels when pressing the foot brake. hope that helped
That a cable with a primary function to the computer working properly is loose, thus impairing the computer's ability to work properly.
A disc brake is type of brake there a rotating disc (AKA rotor) is pinched between two brake pads mounted in a caliper to make the wheel stop turning. There are two ways to make the brake pads pinch the rotor; hydraulic and mechanic/cable operated. With mechanical/cable operated brakes the cable ba…sically turns a screw which pushes one brake pad towards the other, pinching the rotor and slowing the bike down. (MORE)
