1993 Honda Accord Emergency Brake + Rear seatbelt not retracting

I took my recently acquired Honda Accord to get inspected and it failed, mainly because the e-brake did not hold. Anything I can do about this or is it an issue for a mechanic? The guy who sold it to me said he "tightened" something to make the e-brake work, but obviously it wasn't enough. Also, the drivers side rear seatbelt does not retract, is this an easy fix? Help?

The e-brake probably has an adjustment nut either under the brake when you have it pulled up or simply removing a small plastic plate at the back of the console as seen from the rear seat.
You wil probably need about a 12mm deep socked to adjust it. If the nut is bottomed out you will need to adjust if at the wheels.

As far as the seatbelt, you will need to access the reel assembly and determine if the belt is in a bind or the internal spring in the reel is broken. You should be able to tell what the problem is when you get to the reel.

Emergency brake


I recently bought a 92 Honda Acord LX...146000Miles on it. I recently took of the back wheels to check the brakes. My wife thought the rear brakes were dragging since when she takes her foot off the accelerator the car slows down, unlike our Town & Country which has over drive. The Honda has a 4 sp auto and it feels like it is shifting ok but, we wonder if it ever gets to 4th which I assume is OD...or is it? It shifts rather positive,which is OK with me....no slipping into gear for smoother shifting. I digress.
What I really want to know is what kind of set-up does the Honda have as far as the emergency brake goes.....cables or something else? I found no cables going to the rear wheels....or else the are hidden real good. We are afraid to use the emergency brake since another used car we bought once had rusted cables and we locked up the rear wheels and couldn't release them. I had to tear it all down and install new cables.
Sorry, as you can see, I ramble. All I want to know is does the car have cables or some other means for the emergency brake? Thanx

86 honda wagovan right rear wheel locked up


Not sure about the advice above...If your experiencing a rear wheel locking up, I've seen where the emergency brake cable is not releasing and is stuck. Best bet is to have someone operate the E-brake while you watch the cable underneath the car on the right side. If you don't see the cable retracting, clamp a pair of vice grips tightly onto the cable (away from where it could retract into the sheath) and tap the vice grips "away" from the wheel. This will "persuade" the cable to retract, therefore releasing the emergency brake. If that's it, don't use the emergency brake until you either lube it real well or replace it. Good luck!

1993 Honda Accord missing drivers side exterior door lock


Contrary to what the previous poster said, you do not need to involve the dealer on this. Go to a junk yard and get a lock assembl, then take the car and the lock to a locksmith and he can rekey it to match the car's key and install it for you. might cost $100 total...
hope this helps...;-)

Have your brakes checked. It seems like your brake pads are extremely low.
