How hard to change handbrake cable that runs over fuel tank

Depending in the car and how it us a tually fixed in place, or attached to the bidy of the vehicle.
You can some times attach some electrical wire to the brake/side of the cable ie the end, then when pulling the cable out from over the tank, (Providing there are no fixings holdin it in place above yhe tank) Leaving the wire attached as not to compltle follow the barkecables, in place then attach the newcables to the wite and pull back iver the tank toward the brakes again.

This works prividing there is sufficant space.
Without kbowing the type if vehical its a little hard to advise!
Giod luck!

Grinding sound when turning

Can be a number of things. Sometimes when a caliper tries to "float" which is a proper return of the caliper after braking, the brake hoses are hung or attached incorrectly and bind. This causes the calipers to rub as the brake hose limits the travel of the caliper. As the brake pad wears, more looseness develops and also causes the caliper to be pulled even more crooked.

The shortness of the brakeline caused by improper attachment OR failing to lengthen the brakeline by installing lift kits can result in a problem.

Next, could be the C-V joints in a 4x4 or the balljoints in all front suspension.

Brake lights stay on and brake pedal does not come all the way back up even when car is turned off

Okay, you either have a bad Master cylinder, Brake booster or Brake pedal lever problem.

Look under the dash at the top of the brake pedal lever. See if any switches are binding, check the bolt that goes through the brake pedal lever.

If all is good, then the Master cylinder and Brake booster should be looked at.

There is one other possibility that requires a bit more work. Sometimes when a brakeline, anywhere on the car, collapses internally, it acts like a flap. This prevents the fluid from returning to the Master cylinder.

You would start by jacking up each wheel, with the trans in Neutral for the rear if a rear drive, and try to turn the individual wheel. Any wheel which drags bad is still holding hydraulic brake fluid and is why the Master cylinder is not returning to a normal position. The insides of that brakeline has collapsed.

On a 1995 gmc jimmy do you have to disconect the steering colum,brakelines from the master cylnder,and the wireing harness to lift the body to get to the top trany bolts?

If your taking the complete body off then yes the brakes lines have to be removed,the steering shaft has to be separated,all the wires to everything electrical on the motor and water hoses have to come off for the heater and radiator and all the ground wires attached to the frame.A suggestion I would like to give you is to label everything you take off so it goes back where it came off of.Id also like to make another suggestion before you do that try unbolting the the transmission supports and try jacking it up you might have enough room to get your hand behind it to get the upper bolts.It will be tough but its possible to do.

Diagram of the rear brakeline on a 1990 suburban

You can just follow the line up to the master cylinder. It go's behind the gas tank and it is hard to find. And it is fastened to the fram. If it is leaking it is best to just get new one from autoparts store. Straight one. And slide it beside of where it go's into the frame and hook it up. If you need the brakes diagram then.

I hope this helps.

How do I change a fuel pump in a 92 Suburban?

Hi, You will need to disconnect the negative battery cable, raise and support the back of your truck. Remove the filler neck from the tank. Remove any shields around the tank these will be bolted front and back of the tank. Support the tank and remove the two holding straps each will have one bolt that when removed lets the strap drop down, be gentle and pull them back to allow the tank to drop. Lower the tank 6 to 8 inches you will be able to reach on top of it and disconnect the wiring harness and fuel lines. Drop the tank down and lift it out from under the truck. You will then remove the retaining ring from the sending unit and lift the unit out of the tank. Be sure to have a contain to set it in as it will leak fuel. Good luck

It is possible to replace a bad portion of brake line using compression fittings,and alot of parts stores do fabricate and sell brakeline if you take the old piece(s) in for a reference.If you do pull the line from the resevoir your going to have to bleed the entire system incuding the master cylinder,If you have the means I would reccomend taking it to a shop that specializes in brakes,they have the tools and experience to do the job correctly and it really shouldn't be to expensive.If you are going to DIY write me back and I'll give you a walk through on the procedure.
