Question about 1987 Nissan Pickup

1 Answer

Nissan Pickup 1987

Parking Break does not work. For a while it was sketchy, and you had to give it an extra 2mm tug to get it to engage.  And it had a weak grip. Now it has no effect whatsoever. I assume it is the cable from the hand mechanism to the brake drums. Does anyone have a diagram of the parking break system or any other ideas?

On most vehicles, the left and right parking brake cables come together and are attached to a lever linkage called an "equalizer" yoke under the vehicle. The equalizer yoke balances, or equalizes, the amount of force that is applied to both cables when the parking brake is applied. The equalizer linkage, in turn, is connected to a single cable that runs to the parking brake lever or pedal. An adjustment screw may be located on the front cable where it connects to the equalizer, or where the cable attaches to the parking brake lever.The point is to tighten the cable. Look for an adjustment screw.

I popped a brake line on my 1995 Nissan Pathfinder, unfortunately it's in a VERY expensive parking garage with ceilings so low it can't be towed out. Will the parking brake still work so I ca


Yes parking brake will still work. It is mechanical with a wire going from pedal/handle that when pulled squeezes the brake shoes round the rotor. Just go real slow and you should be alright. Hope this helped you.

How do you remove the tail light lens cover for a 1987 Nissan Pickup truck


You can't remove the lens cover. The tail lights are molded as one piece. If you want to change the bulbs, there should be an access panel inside the truck box right behind the tail lights that gives you access to the bulbs. There are also screws to remove the entire tail light assembly if it needs replacing.

87 nissan ex cab when i turn my turn signal on the back one works but the front does not. Both sides do this. When I turn my parking lamps on the front ones do not work either.


your problem may only be bad bulbs,as the turn signals are a double element bulb. which means one light may 'work' and the other 'not' suggest that you replace the 'non' working bulbs and then check them to insure you erceived the right solution. thank you for choosing fixya,com!

Sounds like brake light switch has gone bad. It's just above brake pedal under dash. Small plastic switch with a couple wires coming from it. Simple fix.
