Hi

If you pull the hand brake on a little, and the pedal improves, the problem is in the rear brakes, possibly worn to max, if so, you will have to investigate.
Good Luck !

John.

How can l fix a brake pedal that is to high up on a 2003 grand cherokee laredo


There is a rubber limit stop above pedal. If missing pedal will be a bit high. Otherwise, brake light switch limits upward travel. No other adjustment is possible without cutting and rewelding pedal which could limit travel, change leverage, and void warranties. Adjust seat instead.

How do I get to the parking brake adjusting nut under the center console of a 2001 honda accord LX


If handbrake has excessive travel and the brake pedal is low then you havent set the rear brakes up properly ,if a drum then you clean the lip on the edge of the drum so it has a bevel then you manually adjust the auto adjuster till the drum just slides over then tap outer edge of drum wth a small hammer to level the shoes and then see if you can then adjust the auto adjuster up a bit more .Also when taking the drum off again make sure that the handbrake mechanism lever is right back ,Now if you adjust the brakes on the handbrake cable then it will be out of square and will not work on a brake roller tester ,and the footbrake will still feel spongey then you get a inspection failure for excessive pedal travel and low handbrake efficiency ,this model of car should be able to lock the rear brakes up at 30mph when jerking the handbrake up hard and it shouldnt have more than 3 clicks when done correctly

Clutch pedal travel is excessive. Sits about 2"


A clutch pedal takes MUCH more travel to function correctly, when compared to a brake system...

A clutch needs to be replaced (maybe) when it SLIPS, Chatters, Or fails to release...

Other than that, the clutch will need to be adjusted to allow for total release of the relese bearing when pedal is released, and full disengaugement when pedal is depressed....Have a mechanic look at the adjustement, as proper adjustment gives longer clutch life. This is a periodic adjustment item.

My break light swithes on sometimes without me even pressing the breaks. The break light also sometimes stays on even when I have taken my feet off the break. I have tried changed the break light switch...


Did you adjust the brake light switch correctly? To adjust the brake light switch, first press the brake pedal down a few inches, then pull the switch plunger rod out of the switch toward the brake pedal arm, as far as you can without using excessive force. Next, return the brake pedal to the pedal stop position against the pedal stop and pull the brake pedal toward the rear to push the brake light switch actuating plunger rod into the switch housing limited by the travel of the brake pedal arm rear travel stop position. This procedure automatically adjusts the brake light switch correctly.
If the brake lights still don't turn off with the brake pedal released, check the brake pedal arm for sticking or binding that is preventing the brake pedal arm from returning fully to the pedal stop when the brake is released.

Noticing a little more travel on brake pedal and handbrake lever and wonder whether some adjustment can be made to reduce this travel on brake pedal


your rear brakes are worn or the self adjusters are rusted, assuming you have drum rear brakes & not disc pads in the rear.
Try backing up several times with very hard stops to activate the self adjusters. If you don't back up much, the self adjusters can not work. Parking brake will be adjusted at the same time.

please rate.

I got a brake booster put on and now the brake pedal won't go up enough to touch the brake light sensor


There is an adjusting rod behind the master cylinder or at the brake pedal. The dealer should adjust this for you as its travel distance is very important.

Brake servo master cyl flexing and moving to bulk head making the foot brake pedle spungy soft insufistant reserve travel


I think your saying you have a spongy pedal. have the brake system checked for leaks ( externally as well as internally eg master cylinder) and wear. If a-ok then have them bleed the system.
Now if your saying there is a problem with pedal travel
that has to do with pedal rod adjustment( which is only adjusted after replacing a master cylinder or booster)
