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

2000 Mazda 626 brake lights (all 3) not working.


I know the answer to this. I just fixed my in laws 1999 626 with your exact problem. Power comes through the brake switch, and into what they call a "joint box". Basically this joint box is the back side of your fuse box where all the connectors go. Most likely you have a bad box, or connection at the box. It is the only other thing between your brake switch and rear brake lights.

How do I adjust the emergency brake?


Over here we call it a parking brake - hardly any of our cars are autos.

Parking brakes usually connect to the rear disc brake calipers but some manufacturers use a small drum brake in the disc centre for parking purposes due to the complexity of the caliper with integral parking brake.

When adjusting a parking brake it is important in most designs for the cable to be adjusted only to remove any free play without moving the caliper levers from the backstops and then if the parking brake lever or pedal travel is excessive it must be because of wear or other faults. Sometimes that basic requirement must be taken with a pinch or two of "experienced" salt...

Ford have a self adjusting parking brake I have experience of. A spring within the system preloads the cable eliminating all slack in the cable so the cable moves the caliper levers from the first. The main problem with the system is the preload spring is sometimes strong enough to overcome the resistance of the caliper spring and cause a binding brake. No manual adjustment was provided.
In that case I find fabricating and fitting brackets to anchor additional return springs to the calipers is a must.

Emergency brake sticking.....i think. Mazda B4000 pickup


Are you sure it is the emergency brakes?Or is it a caliper stuck,because it is bad,or the caliper brake hose is stopped up?Jack the wheels up,one at a time,and try to see if they will turn by hand.This will tell you if it is front,or rear.If it is the emergency brake,then the cable from the front,to the bake,is most likely the problem,it is rusted ,and frayed,and stuck,you will have to disconnect it at the rear,from the brakes.If this helps,let us know,If it is the calipers,in the front,the wheels will not turn by hand.Brake loose the caliper bleed screw,and if the caliper turns the wheel loose,then the brake hose is bad,if it does not ,then the caliper is bad on that wheel.

Car moves when handbrake applied,rear disc brakes.


The hand brake needs adjustment and more than likely the rear disc brakes are worn out. Replace the worn pads before adjusting the hand brake.

Replaced the rear pads/rotors and calipers on a 2000 Mazda 626. Removed parking brake cable as per repair manual. However, after reinstalling the cable, I don't seem to be able to adjust the parling brake...


There should be an adjuster next to the handbrake lever. You may have to remove some trim to see it but it is in the general area of the lever.

How do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford taurus. I replaced rear brake pads, cylinders and drums, but now have no emergency brake so need to know how to adjust.


FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

Mazda 626 1999 Gxi - abs light comes on


Sounds like a dry caliper(if disc brakes) or dry wheel cylinder (if drum). Some times a good cleaning goes a long way but may take some disassembling to do it.

How do I ajust my handbrake on my 2000w mazda 626?


The adjustment is found under the boot for the hand lever. You must remove or lift up the boot which surrounds the hand brake lever. Use a deep socket to tighten the nut on the end of the threaded shaft which is attached to the front end of the emergency brake cable. Make incremental adjustments to the cable. Test by using the hand lever after each adjustment to ensure that the emergency brake does not drag with the hand lever released.
