Emergency brake adjustment


This depends on which cable is hanging down. There are several cables in the assembly. One cable comes from the parking brake assembly under the Drivers' dash. It joins the rear cable assembly that goes to each rear wheel. Some cars have 2 separate rear wheel cables and others have a Y assembly that has to be replaced as 1 part.

There can be an adjustment rod where the front cable meets the rear assembly. Some of the parking brake reels under the dash are suppose to reel in extra slack.

Often if the rear Emergency brakes are worn out, there will be slack in the assembly.

Locate speedometer cable


The speed meter cable arises from rear middle side of the transmission and is attached to the rear of combination meter assembly. It is a two part system. One is the inner speed meter wire and the outer cable or sleeve, in which the inner speed meter wire rotates to show the vehicle speed. The speed meter cable is in some Toyota models is made up or two cables, a smaller cable near the transmission side and larger one towards the meter, which are joined together to form a single piece First look up the inner wire of smaller piece and then pull out the other larger inner wire, without removing the whole cable. If it is found broken, replace the whole assembly.
To replace the speed meter cable assembly, unscrew the cable at the transmission side. Sit on a driver's seat, open the Philips screws from under side of the combination meter. Pull out the whole cover by tilting it to release from the steering wheel. Unscrew the 4 Philips screws, pull out the meter assembly a bit, bend your claw to approach behind the meter assembly, push the speed meter plastic lock force fully towards the cable and pull out the cable.
Ask your companion to slowly pull out the cable from the engine compartment side and you also push the cable towards the same direction simultaneously to take it out.
Install the new cable in the reversed order of dis assembly.
Hope that works. Thank you.

MY DISTRABUTION DIAL FOR DEF.,VENT, ETC IS IN DEFROST AND WON'T CHANGE. THE DIAL TURNS BUT NOTHING CHANGES. I NEEN SOME ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO TO FIND PROBLEM AND FIX. THANKS GENO


Here is the info. I hope the pictures show up. please rate assistance. thx.

Air distribution within the vehicle is determined by the function selector switch position. Two airflow mode doors are used to direct airflow within the heater core and evaporator core housing. The function selector switch/cable assembly is used to position these airflow mode doors. Refer to Section 412-00 for description and operation of each of the system functions.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Function Selector Cable Assembly
The function selector cable assembly moves the airflow mode doors to the desired position using a 2-sided pull-pull type cable assembly. The function selector controls the cable movement. The end of the cable assembly attaches to the airflow mode door/temperature blend door actuating assembly which transfers the cable movement to the 2 airflow mode doors.
An electrical switch is incorporated into the function selector to notify the A/C switch assembly if DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected. When DEFROST or FLOOR/DEFROST is selected, the A/C switch assembly will disable the RECIRC request button and send an A/C request to the powertrain control module (PCM) regardless of the A/C request button indicator ON/OFF status.

How do you take the parking brake pedal assembly off a 1999 Silverado Chevy? Are there three or two bolts? What has happened is the cable broke or fell off the parking brake assembly. It will not come back...


1. Remove the electrical junction box that is monuted on the lower firewall to the right of the pedal assembly.

2. There is a small cable that runs from the parking brake release lever to the pedal assembly. Use the release lever to remove the tension on the cable, then inclip the cable from the top part of the pedal assembly.
3. Remove the three 1/2" nuts holding the pedal assembly in place. You will have removed one already to take out the electrical juntion box. THe other two are on the top of the pedal assembly, holding it to the side of the vehicle.

4. Under the vehicle, disconnect the front of the parking brake cable from the rear section of the cable. You will have to pul this cable up through the floorboards. Remove the clamp that holds it to the frame and pass it through so it is ready to go up thru the floorboard.

5. Remove the pedal assembly from the interior wall of the vehicle. Pull the rubber grommet and cable up thru the floorboard.
