Sounds like you need to replace the parking brake shoes. If you are not familiar with them, have someone install them as they are a huge pain in the ****. Expect to pay 1.5-2 hours labor to install them. If you want to give it the old college try. remove the rear rotors, an they sit around the axle flange.

88 suzuki Samari I replaced RR and LR tail lights housing. (New)blinkers work break lights work also.when I take foot off break pedal the break lights stay on and parking light and break light.Help


Their is switch the brake switch its on the brake pedal up high .
It sounds like its working because the lights work .
However it dose have an adjustment on most of them ware you can move the switch in or out so it olny makes contact when you touch the pedal with your foot .
This sounds like you need to back the contact out a little its a nut 1/2 turn should do it .
Its usely vary simple take a look at it even if you need to replace it it is an 88 its inexpensive and not hard to do .

What kind of problems? Unless the downgrade is practically vertical, I don't see any reason for it to affect the functionality of the vehicle.

What can i do.i change my rear break,drum,cylinder,ruber hose,master cylinder.and my breaks are steel heating.now my drum are blue and oval i have to change them again but i have to find the problem...


Here are some reasons for your problems.
I , too, have had such problems, so I speak from experience.
Here are some suggestion.
1) Change all of your brake fluid in the whole system.
It can get contaminated with moisture and rust.
2) Be ABSOLUTELY certain you have the parking brake mechanism working perfectly, hooked up correctly, and lubricated
It really sounds like you do not, according to the explanation you state.
3) Check the parking brake system and see if it is sticking or is out of adjustment causing the parking brake to drag, and be sure whoever drives the truck is not "riding the brake pedal".
God bless your efforts.

Brake light on dash comes on and remains on for awhile, then goes off.


Is your emergency break catching? Do you feel drag? Are you hearing any noises from the breaks? Have you checked the break fluid?

Parking brake efficency too low


The parking break is a stand alone cable that can be adjusted if you climb under the vehicle. depending on your parking break location in the cab will help you better locate it under the car IE if you set your parking brake using a handle in the center of the vehicle cab, the wire is close to center under the vehicle, if you use a handle or foot pedal its on the driverside of the vehicle and Y's off to the passager side and driver side rear break

EX:

follow the cable and you will find the adjuster bolt, just tighten it to take up slack in the cable, if there is no slack you will increase the efficency of the parking break.....Dont over tighten it though cause this can cause drag in the rear breaks and shorten the lifespan of the break shoe or pad

Handbrake does not always work at first attempt. if you pull the handbrake up and down a few times without the button pressed eventually it catches on the ratchet and works.


Check the return spring on the parking brake lever as wll as the gear teeth:
  1. Make sure the parking brake cable is free and is not frozen or sticking. Make sure the brake shoes are properly adjusted.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  3. Apply the parking brake while counting the number of notches. Check the desired parking brake stroke; it should be 7-9 notches.
  4. If adjustment is required, remove the adjusting nut cover and turn the adjusting nut located at the front of the parking brake cable.
  5. After adjustment, check there is no looseness between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever, then tighten the locknut.
Do not adjust the parking brake too tight. If the number of notches is less than specification, the cable has been pulled too much and the automatic adjuster will fail or the brakes will drag.
  1. With the parking brake lever in the released position, turn the rear wheels to confirm that the rear brakes are not dragging.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Check that the parking brake holds the vehicle on an incline.
