My red handbrake symbol keeps flashing what does this mean please


The handbrake light is usually not the handbrake light, it is a warning light for the whole braking system. You could have a problem with the abs system, low brake fluid in the master cylinder or brake pads worn down.
The brake fluid reservoir is easy to check, just lift up the hood and it should be right there mounted on top of the brake booster, in line where the brake pedal is.
The brake pads on modern vehicles have sensors that warn you when they need replacement, so have them checked.
Finally of course, you could have a loose wire on the handbrake warning switch which is mounted at the base of the handbrake, or if you're very lucky, you might just need to drop the handbrake just a fraction more before you drive off.

Wheel smokes,brake dragging


Make sure your handbrake cable is adjusted properly. Adjust the rear brake shoes down to where the wheels turn freely with the linings only just touching the drums. Be sure to pump the pedal a few times after adjusting, then try again.
The front wheels (pads and calipers) will just about never bind, so concentrate on the rear wheels. If you do suspect the front wheels, release the bleeder valve for just a second and then try again.

Ford transit 07 handbrake light not working


Wow- very complicated. No, many transits that age have no switch for the handbrake. I don't know why. But if you want to know where to find the switch so you can check yourself, you just pull up the handbrake cover and remove it. (Is rather stiff). There is a tounge on the leaver which should press a switch once the handbrake has come down to rest. The switch Is held onto the handbrake bracket by a small clip. Basically, if you remove the cover and you can't see an obvious wire / switch , you don't have one :-)

Why does my jaguar xk8 stiil roll when in park


If you're trying to hold it on the auto transmission alone, then the transmission brake bands need adjusting or even replacing. If it's rolling when the handbrake (parking brake) is applied, then the handbrake needs adjusting or needs new pads.

The car should never be parked and held on the transmission alone; the handbrake should always be the primary means of holding the car from moving.

Both of these jobs are routine maintenance tasks but are not ones for an inexperienced mechanic.

How do I change the brake pads


piece of cake ,the pistons just push in front and rear ,the handbrake is inside the rear brake disk so dont forget to strip and lubrcate the operating mechanisms for the handbrake with some nice copperslip in the adjuster .Also most important is to polish it every week and clean seats with leather restorer every month after all it is a real car as its a JAGUAR

How do i tighten the handbrake on my mitsubishi triton ute 1994 4wd


Hi,
Inorder to tighten it you need to check to see if the side that is not holding if the primary shoe that the handbrake cable pulls on. If not then you may need to adjust the adjuster at the shoe. It may be too far retractor so when the handbrake is engaged, the shoe is not coming out far enough to grab the inside of the drum. There is most likely nothing wrong with the cable. You just need to adjust the shoes. When you pull the wheel off and inspect the shoes, you will see if they are not worn. To use the adjuster, pull see it will be near the retainer spring, the spring will connect from the top and bottom of the shoes to retract them. On the top side, where the upper spring is will be the mechanical adjuster, where you can adjust out the shoes to make them grab accordingly when engaged.

Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.

How do you ajust handbreak cabel on ford focus 1.6 3 door year 2004


The tightness of the handbrake is a function of the adjustmnent of the rear brakes. If the rear brakes are working properly, the handbrake adjustment will be correct. I would change the rear brake pads first, before I tried anything else. Worn pads or nonfunctioning adjusters are the likely culprit.
If you do not want to repalce the rear brakes, you can find the instructions for tightening the handbrake on a website called Focushacks.com. But, if you make the modification (I don't recommend it) you will have to change it back when you get around to changing the rear pads.
