How to get the proportioning valve to slide to the center. 1997 mazda 626 brakes

The valve has went to one side. I need to get it centered. I tried to open the rear brake bleeders to slide it to the center to let the fluid to the front brake but it won't center. Maybe I'm doing it all wrong.

STAND ON THE BRAKES.

Also, many of them have a Physical RESET button you have to press, but most of those were in the 1970's.

How to fix a proportioning valve


Do not try to fix the proportioning valve. There are no parts available for it. Usually go bad due to moisture contamination on the brake fluid which causes corrosion and sticking. Replace it it is a major safety item.

Cant get rotor off 2000 mazda 626


Hammer time! all the brake rotors I've ever seen just slide on over the wheel lug studs. Your rotor could be seized on there due to rust or excessive heat. tap your way around the back side of the brake rotor and if you can put some heat to the wheel stud areas and it should pop loose. Hope this helps

The brake light is on on my 1987 Chevy Truck. Its from the proportioning valve, not the parking brake. Is their any thing to check, or just replace the valve?


The proportioning valve simply ensures that the front brakes are applied before the rear brakes are, to prevent sideways skids from loss of rear traction. The valve also serves as a warning light when one end, either front or rear, of the system has deficient line pressure. Inside the valve is a cylinder, and a piston that belongs in the center of the valve cylinder (when fluid pressure on each side is equal). When one side of the valve (front or rear brake system) loses pressure (like from a leaking brake line), the piston gets pushed to the low pressure end and makes contact with a switch terminal that turns the light on.The trick to turning the light off is to figure out which end, front or rear brakes, the piston is on, and then bleed the other end to center the piston and turn the light off. Too much pressure on the brake pedal will cause the piston to go past center to the opposite end, and a close watch on the brake warning light will reveal that as the lamp will flicker once while the piston passes center.
Gently depress the brake pedal (requires an assistant) with a bleeder open and close the bleeder as soon as the assistant (brake pumper) sees the light go out. If he sees the light flicker once bleed the other end of the vehicle to go back towards center.

Just had harmonic balancer put on and new belts he fogot the loctite glue so now has to undo bolt and put that on dur! but i am hearing a squeak in the wheel right hand drivers side AU car of my 1997 626...


it sounds like your brakes need to be replaced. the squeaking is actually a brake pad indicator rubbing on the rotors letting you know that the pads are low an need to be changed soon. if you let this go on for too long you may damage the rotors and spend a lot more money than just a simple brake job.
