SOURCE: how to adjust power brake booster for 2002 volvo s 80

There is no adjustment to the rod between the brake rod and the booster on a S80. If you are having brake light problems the first place to look is in the trunk for a bad fuse in the rear electrical module behind the cover on the left side.

If you look under the truck, follow the e-brake cable from the rear brakes forward. You should see a section with threads (similar to a stud) and a hex head with a nut on it. Get two open end wrenches and hold both the nut and the head and tighten to adjust.

If the brakes release after the front bleeder is open the fault is at the master cylinder, Adjust the brake rod to master cylinder piston so there is at least 1/16 inch free play, the master cylinder bucket is covering the oil return port.

I manually adjusted my brake pedal on a 2004 expedition. After testing the brake lights would not go out. I replaced the brake switch and now the brake lights will not come on. What do you think?


it appears that your adjustment of the brake pedal is the problem
if you adjusted it down , of course the lights will stay on
if you did not adjust the brake switch position correctly on replacing the switch of course the lights will not come on
the brake pedal should have about 1" movement before the brake rod pushes on the m/cyl piston or booster rod
you have to adjust the switch position to operate in the free play distance

Honda passport booster push rod adjustment


Adjust the brake pedal pushrod so there is a small clearance or free play in the brake pedal linkage equivalent to a couple of millimetres of free play on the pedal.

It is then extremely important to ensure there is a clearance of about 0.010" between the brake master cylinder piston and the booster pushrod. In the absence of the official service tool some careful measuring will be required. Some boosters have an adjustable pushrod and some need shims to be inserted between the booster and cylinder and some manufacturers provide no facility for adjustment...

Jeep wrangler yj change master cylinder and booster pedal has alot of play bled brakes


play is defined as the distance the pedal travels down before the solid resistance is felt. If it goes down more than about 2 inches then re-bleed the brakes starting at the longest line first. If it is free pedal ( distance from initial movement to when the pedal rod touches the piston this should be around 1" measured from the floor to the pedal . It is adjustable at the end of the rush rod connected to the pedal.

The clutch pedal on Suzuki vitara two litre V6 1998 goes to about inch of floor before activation. Clutch does not slip just too much pedal travel. Is it possible to adjust it? ...


prev.gif next.gif Clutch ADJUSTMENTS 1997-98 Models CLUTCH PEDAL HEIGHT The clutch pedal height should not be a periodic adjustment but may be checked after components of the mechanical clutch system have been replaced. The proper clutch pedal height should be 0.2 in. (5mm) above the brake pedal height If adjustment is necessary, loosen the locknut and turn the adjusting bolt until the appropriate height is reached. Once set, keep the bolt from turning and tighten the locknut to secure the adjustment. CLUTCH PEDAL FREE-PLAY The clutch pedal free-play should be checked from time-to-time in order to assure proper clutch operation. The proper clutch free-play should be 0.6-1.1 in. (15-25mm). Fig. 1: Pedal free-play is adjusted at the joint nut (2), while keeping the outer cable nuts (3) tightened around the center cable thread portion 7924hg30.gif
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. If the free-play must be adjusted, turn the joint nut (2) located at the transmission end of the clutch cable in or out, as necessary to achieve the proper play.
  3. Once the correct pedal free-play is obtained, check the free-play on the release arm (c), it should be 0.02-0.06 in. (0.5-1.5mm).
1999-01 Models These vehicles are equipped with a hydraulic clutch system. No adjustment is necessary.

Burnt smell from clutch when im in 3rd gear


It sounds like the clutch is close to being worn out as the pressure plate is not gripping the clutch plate with sufficient force when power is applied. Before you consider replacing any thing, first check the clutch free travel adjustment because as the clutch plate wears the free travel does decrease and if there is no free travel, then there will be some releasing action on the pressure plate allowing cluth plate slip. Hydraulic setups are usually self adjusting but you should check the free travel of the clutch pedal which should be about 3/8 to 1/2 inch measured at the pedal rubber. This is done by adjusting the push rod that links the pedal arm to the piston in the master cylinder. Adjust by first loosening the locknut on the rod at the end where it attaches to the pedal arm and turning the rod in either direction to obtain the correct free travel. One adjusted retighten locknut.
For a cable setup there should at least 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable before it starts to move the clutch fork on the outside of the bell housing. To adjust, hold the operating fork so that the release bearing is touching the fingers of the pressure plate. You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork when the pedal is depressed.
If all adjustments are correct and clutch is still slipping then the pressure plate diaphragm spring has lost its tension and /or the clutch plate has worn down to the rivets. Either way you will have to do a complete clutch rebuild.

How do you adjust the brake rod on drum power brakes for my 75 Gremlin, I replaced the master cyl.and now I get a brake pedal that is grinding and heating up. The wheels are not hot but the master cyl. is...


First did you replace the master cylinder? If you did you should have adjusted the rod so that you have 1-inch free play at the pedal before installing. You would normally back off the nut just enough to get it loose then install the new one. For the drums you adjust the brake drum tensioned to the point that with two lug nuts holding the drum in place it slightly drags and that would be adjusted threw the brake drum adjustment hole. If you have one to tight it will cause the master cylinder to get hot so jack it up off of the wheels and see if you have one wheel that won't turn freely if you do that’s the one you got to loosen up.
