If your parking brake is loose than you have to take off your center console box. Leave the parking brake off and when you take off the box you will see the cable from the handle connecting to two cables that go to the back. You can adjust from there. If that doesn't solve it than it might be broke and you'll have to check everything

How fix broken grab handle


Did the handle break or the base? Typically the screws get loose and they won't tighten properly. That means you have to weld up the holes and redrill for new screws or weld nuts in for extra strength.

Parking brake stuck


First off, I'd make sure the car was in park with the engine off and try that but I assume you already tried with it both OFF and ON. On should never work unless your foot is already fully engaged on the break. as many cars will not allow you to release the parking break unless you foot is on the break, some will not even allow it when the engine is not running, even in park. If you are running and the foot is on the break. Try SLOWLY moving backwards or forwards to disengage it since you may have pulled it a bit too far and the cable was real tight, this is easier to do when that parking break is too loose to begin with, and once the car rolled it got even tighter but moving the vehicle in the opposite direction that it rolled may loosen it enough.

If all else fails, you or a mechanic may go under the vehicle and simply loosen the cable to disengage it and then re-tighten it. Even if you are able to loosen them yourself you may want a mechanic to tightening the parking brake since is common chore for mechanics and it should not cost that much to do since it literally take only a few minutes once on the lift.

How do you adjust parking brake


The parking brake lever usually activates a cable that is attached to the rear drum brake. You can look for the connection at the parking break lever in the car and there many be an adjustment nut that you can tighten - this is only a small adjustment as is getting under the vehicle and just tighten up the nut. Typically, if the parking break does set the break firmly with a small push - pull (depending on the type) is means your break pads are getting worn down.

Jetta parking brake


Your car should have an E-brake engage/release lever. Please inspect the push button on the end of the lever. Does the button depress and release correctly? My guess is that the lever needs to be repaired or replaced. Maybe the internal spring has broke and the button wont release. If the button doesn't release, the ratchet wont engage. Write back and let me know what you found or if you have other questions, good luck.

Handbrake light


the cable runs along the underneath rail of the car on the left side. It is an obvious cable, like a wire type, kinda thicky. inspect that, and smooth any kinks out, possibly tighten it or perhaps a clip came out and its stretched on something foriengn. just smooth cable, do not stress because the parking break cable will re-release itself and you may want to disconnect the positive battery for a 30 second count and reconnect and the light on dash should go away permanently unkless it sticks down the road. you do not need to pull the handle so tight it experiences these situations. just gently pull up, click click type thing, make sure its engaged and you should depress brake pedal and raise handle when you go to release this parking brake, and make sure your key is in ignition, car running and then depress brake pedal with foot, as you gently pull up, depress clicker button and proceed slowly down which should dis-engage this parking brake and allow free vehicle movement to drive. good luck

Rolls in park


The parking brake can be bad or stuck. There is not much to them to begin with. For the transmission, there are several potential problems.

You may just need an adjustment, as the Park is on one extreme end of the shift from the rest. It may not quite be locking.

Inside the trans there is a lever called a pawl. Can't say why it is called that but it is suppose to wedge between gears notches inside the trans. This is suppose to lock the shaft. If the pawl lever is broke, it has no end to jam in its position. The broken part would be loose inside the trans.

I see that you were on a driveway. It could do it anywhere. Remember Driver training to hook front wheels toward downgrade hills and for the back of the front wheels to hook the curb on upgrades when parallel parking.

Even so, the Parking brakes are not that good to depend on when the trans does not lock in place. Take it somewhere to check trans linkage.

All 4 bolts which connect a steel frame underneath in between the two rear wheels continue to grip when tightened then break loose as if they got stripped. I loosened them before repairing badly damaged...


Good ol` Toyota yet another f---k up!!!!! There is no cheap way of overcoming this problem unless you have a tame welder.The nuts you are refering to are captive fixed unfortunatly they corrode and break out of thier fixings they will have to be cut out and new nuts welded in..SORRY for the bad news....

V70 door hinge problem. the door opening mechanism is loose on the car body. is there any way of tightening this


No way to tighten What actually has happened is the body is broken loose where the arm attaches. This is a known problem with the 850 and the S/V 70 series volvo until 2001. The only repair is to have it welded.
