Ford laser sedan kj lxi 95 model break lights need to be replaced

are both brake lights not working ? if so very unusual for both to go at same time so i'd check the fuse , fuse box lower dash drivers side lid/door will have list , if ok open the trunk and at the rear of the light clusters remove the brake bulbs, there will most likely be some sort of trim, carpet or even a small access panel to remove first,if bulb's are ok then it must be the switch which is located at the top of the brake pedal, easy to adjust disconect the wire from top of switch and turn switch anti clockwise one complete turn , refit wire and check if bulbs working , if not repeat the adjustment

Adjust the parking break on a 2010 f-150?

Hi Jeff, Inspect the back plates of the brakes to see if there is a slot for inserting a feeler gauge. I would think there will be. Insert the feeler gauge into the slot and adjust until friction is felt on the blade. Adjust both rear brakes to the same clearance. Front Disc brakes are self adjusting (As should be the rear?)

How do I adjust emergency brake on 1990 ford f 350 dually

Under the cab on the drivers side about even with the door hinge the cable splits for the two different sides, right in this junction is an adjustment rod in the cdables connecter. If all things are the same and the brake is'nt tight enought to hold the truck don't adjustr any hting till you check the rear brakes as your describing the brake shoes worn out and even groung into the drums. The cables only need to be adjusted as the cables are removed or changed and once adjusted are good to go. The rear break shoes can be OK but thier adjustment to be as close to the break drums as possible with the shoes adjusters. You can get into the back of the drum though the adjustment hole but some don't have the hole and the drum will need to be removed. If you have this problem the brakes need to be looked at anyway and worn parts changed to new as failure altogether cvan cause a crash.

How do you adjust the rear drum breaks on a 1990 Ford Laser Hatchback

to adjust the brakes --- at the bottom of the drum housing ( twords the inside of the car ) there should be a little oblong rubber cover. pop that cover off and you will see a gear looking wheel adjuster,, using a flathead screw driver rotate the wheel -- in one direction it will advance the shoes and in the other direction it will decrease the shoes. make sure the parking brake is off while you make the adjustment -- also make sure the side you are working on is jacked up off the ground so you can spin the wheel / hub to get the brake shoes in the right position. you should not hear any rubbing of the brakes as the drum spins. -- I find it best to turn the gear adjuster just to the point where the shoes start to grab,, then back off a couple clicks --- repeat on the other side and you should be good to go. hope this helps --

Break goes down lower then normal but the breaks stop the car , my break light came on last week but i added break fluid and then my break light went off then it was ok but i could not start my car becouse...

I it is usually the brake shoe adjusters at the rear.

Auto adjust type:
To adjust them you can hold your foot hard down on the brake pedal and wrech up the park brake lever a few times

Manual adjust
Drums off and wind the adjuster cog to increase the diametre of the shoes, don't get carried away thow or the drum wont go back on

How to adjsut the rear brake cable on a 97 crown

Over time those SS steel cables stretch. Most of the older Fords have an adjustment in the cable just before it splits into 2 cables running to the rear wheels. Should be a easy find.
PS. Don't over do the adjustment... a bit of penetrating oil the day before the attempted adjustment will make the job MUCH easier....
Hope this helps.

1997 p reg ford escort

check to be sure emergency brake is not engaged ..and that cable is not frozen/rusted keeping it from releasing at baking plate into back of drum..often there is a knock out...(dimpled.stamped impression in backing plate) where the adjusting hole should would need to slam that out (or in) with a heavy drift or screwdriver you are willing to hurt..then get to the star adjuster adn back it off
use lubricant around drum/backing plate area and at center (hub/drum) area where rust happens and pry with large screwdrivers 180 degrees apart between backing plate and drum wiggling and shifting positions around circumference...also a zerk fitting at that wheel cylinder and wiggle screwdrivers 'tween backing plate and drum to get shoes to close some....good luck

Adjust rear brakes on a 2000 saturn ls

The rear breaks have self adjusters on them. If you put the car in reverse and pump the breaks this should adjust the breaks. These are drum breaks correct?
