SOURCE: Brake Light Switch clip on 94 GMC Pickup

My 1996 Brake light clip needed to spread open with a screw driver(some what like a round spring) and with another screw driver push the switch up the pin. The switch will push the clip off the Pin. The pin has a head that needs to clear clip while the spring clip is spread open. It took me a while to figure out.

How to replace brake light swtch in a 1999 chevy tahoe

The switch is attached to the brake pedal. Remove the wiring connector and the switch will either have a clip securing it or will be held in place with a plastic bushing. If a plastic bushing is used, a gentle pull will be needed to remove the switch. Install in reverse order and check brake light operation for switch operation/adjustment

How do I replace the brake switch on 98 C 1500 Chevy on brake pedal above steer column and the switch retainer clip

I just bought a 98 2500. Brake switch works, but I don't have the clip to keep switch inplace (which is on a peg attached to brake pedal). I just need the clip. I assume it would be a moon shaped clip that snaps on the end of the "peg." Once white brake switch is inserted onto the peg (swicth has a whole in it that fits onto peg) then clip snaps onto end of peg left exposed after brake switch is in place. As you apparently know, If that swicth slides off the peg or is bad, you can't put it in gear.

My 1995 Chevy Tahoe brake light switch wont stay in position and the brake lights stay on. I replaced the switch and had the same problem.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disable the SIR system (if equipped).
  3. Remove the clip (R/V Series) or unclip the switch (C/K Series) and unplug the electrical connector from the brake light switch.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

How to remove the retaining clip on the brake

Bear with me on this. It's a relatively simple clip (once you know how to remove them) but somewhat difficult to explain properly via the internet. But here goes. It may help if you draw it like this:

On a piece of paper draw a half inch line (don't lift the pencil/pen) up to down. Go right an inch and a half, down 1/16, left 1 1/4, down 1/8. Place the eraser end of the pencil to right of the 1/8 up against the 1 1/4. Got it?

Should form a type of a "T". Insert a flat screwdriver between the top of the pencil and the clip. If you twist the screwdriver it will lift the 1/8 part of the clip over the eraser permitting you to slide the clip off the shaft.

All I could think of...Hope that helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

Having trouble with the brakes on my '90 Ford ranger. Replaced the master cylinder and still have very little braking power. Any help would be appreciated!

***Seek out professional help this vehicle is not safe to operate.***

Check the vacuum line going to the brake booster.

This is the big round chamber behind the master cylinder.

Hope this tip helps.

How do you install a brake booster on a 82 chevy silverado

If you are indeed sure that you need the bootster, (you should hear a pronounced hissing sound from within the truck while depressing the pedal) it is a simple procedure. Remove the circlip or pintle type clip retaining the shaft to the pedal. Grab a flashlight and locat the four mounting nuts for the booster from inside the vehicle while lying on your back. Loosen theses slightly. Remove the master cylinder from the booster without removing any brake lines from the master cylinder. Leave the master hanging carefully in front of the booster. pull it gently towards the front of the master and away from the mounting bolts. Go back inside under the dash and finish removing the booster mounting nuts. Take note if there are any washers anfd don't allow them to fall beneath the floor carpet. Insallation is the reverse of removal. Thank you, Dana

How to replace a brake booster in 1995 buick riviera? my brakes are hard to push and almost impossible to brake. a hissing sound like a air leak comes from the booster.

undo the the vacuum hoses and make sure you make a diagram of where each hose goes. move them out of the way.

undo the four bolts that attach the master cyclinder to the booster. use a wire coat hanger or just wire to support it. you don't want to bend or break the brake lines.

undo the four bolts that hold the booster to the firewall. carefully pull it away from the firewall. you will see a small are there with a clip. remove the clip and unhook the arm.

reverse those instructions to put it back together

However BEFORE you do that. Make sure that none of the vaccuum hoses are leaking.

please take a moment to rate this solution. thanks
