Not 100% sure but peel back the handbrake lever cover.Beside the lever where the handbrake cable attaches there may be an adjuster there.Either directly on the cable itself or by locknuts threaded on the cable.Hope this helps

How do i remove 2nd gear in mazda drifter 2.5 4x4 manual


obviously you do not have a manual and that will cause you big problems in reassembly. however yo will have to remove the output shaft first. remove the circlip behind the rear bearing of the output shaft. tap the out put shaft towards the front of the box until it is free of the bearing. use a drift to knock the bearing backwards out of the box. this should allow you to then remove any circlips and remove the shaft from the gears
Get your self a manual as it will explain all the details

Are rear brakes in 2000 mazda protege self adjusting?


If the rears are not adjusted right, it could be a problem. And they should be self-adjusting, although often the adjusters get frozen from rust, corrosion, dirt. To adjust them, you drive in reverse and hit the brakes. Every time you do this the adjuster should click-it has made one turn on the adjuster's star wheel. Do it a few times: reverse, press brakes; reverse, press brakes. If brakes were too loose, and adjusters were working, the brake pedal may brake better now-pedal may be higher when brakes are pressed. If not sure, peel off the rubber plug on back bottom of brake backing plate. You should see the adjuster star wheel. Use a screwdriver and see if you can turn the star wheel either way. If still not sure, take the brake drum off, pull the shoes off, and take off the adjuster for cleaning. They are very simple devices, only a few parts to them. If they need cleaning to free up, do so. Then use some high temperature grease, very sparingly, on the adjuster's threads. Put them back on, shoes, and drums, then do the reverse and brake again to get them adjusted. Should work great now. When you pull the drum off, you can check if you need new brake shoes- not likely, but check.
Good luck.

Need to remove rear hub on my mk6 fiesta


no sweat just undo the big nut in the middle ,then when off wash out with a hose DO NOT BLOW WITH AIRLINE OR BRUSH then rub the lip down that forms on the end of the drum ,now i always use a nagle grinder here with one of them flexable type rubbing disks things and i dont know the correwct name for them ,then with no lip i then manually adjust the rear brakes on the auto adjuster ,make sure that before you do this that the handbrake arms are right the way back if out a bit then slacken off the cable ,after refitting and adjustment of the shoes if more than 3 clicks on the handbrake adjust the cabl ,what happens is that in the dealers where they employ young inexperianced young lads who are on bonus they just adjust the cable and charge the job sheet for a complete drum off job .When done properly the brake foot pedal will be hard with no excessive travel and the handbrake can be locked up`at 30mph ,its a ford remember and they always have good back brakes unlike these silly rear disks with the handbrake on the caliper .just like the old MKI 4 zodiac ,no handbrake turns on that car but a cortina ,now that was a right drifter or a really hairy drifter - a 3litre capri MK I.Sorry for nostalga showing my age here

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.

Just changed rear brake pads on 05 mazda 6. now


This is normal and you need to keep pumping the brakes till they reset there self. Once the brake peddle have reset there self and is firm, check the brake fluid level again and add brake fluid if low. After brakes have reset there self, go for a test drive around the block and check the parking brakes. Good luck.

Very poor brake performance after changing rear shoes


It sounds like your self-adjusters are not assembled correctly allowing them to back off when braking.

Adjustment of parking brake for mazda626


your rear brake pads may be getting low, the hand brake is a self adjusting type, so to fix it...with the car turned off, release park brake, pump the brake pedal 10-15 times, it should auto maticly adjust itself

I can't reinstall the rear drums on my 1994 mazda protege.


your new drums are thicker than the old ones due to wear. You may have to back the self adjusters off manually a few turns to get the new ones on. The adjuster is the little threadeded bolt lookin thing at the bottom of the brake shoes holding them apart. Turn the star looking dial to move it in aways. Afterwards back the car up a few times and push the pedal hard to stop. Repeating this will readjust the rear breaks after assembley. Hope this helps, Clay

Brake Problem


hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
