Put the car on jack stands and remove the wheels. Locate the calipers and brake pads and remove the pins and clips from the calipers. Slide out the old brake pads and push the piston back to make room for the new pads and shims. Slide in the new pads and shims and put the pins, clips and cotter pins back in. The front and rear replacement process are very similar, but have different pads and shims.
Found the wiring diagram for where the colored wires go to connect to the bulb connectors, so I'm thinking my wiring to replace the circuit board is not correct. This is a 1987 Volvo 240dl. Can anyone offer any assistance? I tried following the circuit board as to where to place the wires, but it cannot be correct. If anyone has hard wired theirs, please advise.
the fuel filter is starting to go bad.
The real question is "how can a normal adult hand possibly change a brake, backup or signal light bulb?". I have found that correct arm angle is the key to success - failing that, a "handy" kid brother or sister.

Each heater is controlled by two switches in series: the manual switch on the e-brake console and the thermostat within the seat pad. Both must be closed in order for the switch light to be on and for the seat to heat. If the ambient temperature is above X, the thermostat will remain open and turning the manual switch on-off will have no effect. You can test the system in warm weather by placing a large bag of ice on the seat for about an hour. -Bob, 1986 Volvo 240DL wagon.

Changing brake rotors is pretty easy. One lifts the car, removes the tired, brake shoe and then the brake rotor. Next replace the brake rotor, put the brake shoe and tire back on the car and lower it back to the ground.
They may still be available from your Volvo dealer. There is no charge for them.
Begin by removing the tire and wheel from your 1987 Honda. Remove the brake assembly and the brake rotor. Remove the CV joint retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new CV joint.
What i did on mine was bought some electrical grease, greased all the contact at the lights and have not had a problem with it since, that was five years ago.

If you are talking about the brake sensors then it is time to replace the front brake pads. You should also check the rears while you are at it. When replacing the front brake pads you will also need to change the sensors also.
You can find where you need to put the brake fluid on a 1987 Nissan by lifting your hood. The brake fluid reservoir is in the engine compartment, on the drivers side, attached to the master cylinder.
Haynes has a good one
