E brake The e brake cable moves very smooth but I did take off the e brake arm on the brake calapers to try to compress the brakes before I found out you need to turn and push for that. Did I replace the arm for the e brake in the wrong place?

For the Honda CRV 2004, the driver's side automatic window does not go up or down but all other ones do. Please advise.


Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.

Handbrake wont come up


he lied or the other brake cable also require a change
it is also posable that th rear brakes are not engaging

to test brakes
go to underground concrete parking lot must be smooth concrete and best place to find it is in undergrounds

acelerate in a strait line to 20 mph or 20 km
slam the brake pedal to thew floor causing a skid pump brakes if you have abs
now get out and check all 4 tires have skid patches
if not go in reverst to 10 mph and hit the brakes hard
let it slide
now get out and check skid marks
if you dont get skid marks front and rear it is time to talk to your mechanic
as for brake cables there are usually 3 of them
1 from hand controll then 1 for eash rear wheel somtimes they are on axcell and somtimes they run direct across the trailing arms

Reinstall rear brake caliper on 2007 Jetta


If you look at the piston on the Caliper it has 2 grooves on the face where the Brake pad mates to it. There is a special tool to push and turn the piston back into the caliper bore. that type caliper is also used to apply the parking brake. cable attached to rear of caliper and to an arm with a heavy spring. If you go to Harbor freight they have an inexpensive set for this.

Remove and replace rotor on the front of an LX station wagon


Start by jacking the car up, place on jack stands for safwety, You will see the brake calaper which holds in the shoes, you will see two bolts which holds the brakes together, remove these bolts, then remove the pads. Remopve the bolt and pen holding the rotor on, take the rotor to a brake shop, see if it can be turned instead of having to purchase a new one. When replacing the brake pads you will have to use one of the pads to push the pressure plate back into the calaper to replace the pads. You may want to remove some of the brake fluid so it wont over flow when doing this.

Brakes are locked up.


If you have disk brakes. I would suggest you remove inspect one brake by removing the wheel. Then remove the brake pads using a piece of board and a 6" clamp push the calaper mechanism in and then apply pressure to the brake pedal. If the calapier wont move out .The brake calapier's may be defective.

Rear brakes


parking brake cable is seized or improperly installed.... check that.
I'm uncertain what you mean about the calipers.... but having to push the cyclinder back in to change the pads is normal..... do one at a time. after you have installed the pads, pump the brake then do the other ..... check your brake fluid level when you are done as well.
