Question about Mazda B2200

Open Question

Brake information on Mazda B2200 2.2 1993 2x4 : i got this truck yesterday and notice while driving it that it's hard to brake , when I apply the brakes the pedal goes almost to the floor before the brakes engage I have checked since yesterday : fluid ok / leaks ok / front pad not too bad well half way (i will install the new ones tomorrow) / did not check the back wheels yet (tomorrow) what i'd like to know because i don't have the owner's manual is that i heard that there was a self adjuster at the back wheel so it could be the issue. It may also be the caliper cylinder. Tell me what you think about this so i could check it out tomorrow! please use easy to understand words because my english is not soo good and i ain't sure about the self adjuster thing. Regards Gen

SOURCE: Install new brake pads and rotors all 4 wheels.

Are you losing any Brake Fluid? Is it visible anywhere at the four wheels? Is it visible anywhere else?
The Master Cylinder may be defective. When you bled the Brakes did you maintain proper Brake Fluid Level in the Master Cylinder? If you didn't: and air entered into the Master Cylinder there maybe air within in the system in the Master Cylinder. You can bleed the Master Cylinder by removing the brake lines, adding more fluid, pumping the brakes, bleeding the air out of the system.
Are you losing Brake Fluid and can't find a noticeable leak? Then there is a good posibility that the rear seal in the Master Cylinder is leaking and the Fluid is going into the Brake Booster - which is the large wheel shaped drum located on the fire wall. In this case both the Brake Booster and the Master Cylinder will have to be removed and replaced. The Booster contains seals that Brake Fluid is very caustic to and will ruin these seals- causing future failures.
If no Brake Fluid is lost, no leak found: Check the Brake Booster Vacuum Advance. This should be connected to the outside of the Booster, attached to a hose, with the hose going to the engine. Check to see if this is working properly. Replace if needed.

The booster should hold up with a hard pedal until

down when pressing on the brake

Question about 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0L L4 Which Brake Shoe goes Where, Longer one front or back and vise versa?


Longer brake shoe goes in the rear, these are called self energizing brakes, this is how it works, the shorter front shoe forces the longer rear shoe into the drum when the brakes are applied reducing needed pressure to apply the brakes, the rear shoe does most of the braking..

2002 mazda proteget vibrates when in reverse idles fine fine in drive


Check you motor mounts. With someone in the car and e-brake and main brake applied; Put vehicle in drive and bring RPMS UP and then let off. If you see the motor move excessively then the mount is broken on the side that lifts up. Put it in reverse and do the same. both mounts can be broken and there is usually a third mount so check them all.

MY 1997 MAZDA PROTEGE BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON AFTER THE VEHICLE IS OFF AND KEYS ARE OUT OF THE IGNITION. I TRIED ALL THE FUSES AND CANT FIGURE OUT WHY THEY ARE STILL ON?


You may have a stuck brake light switch. The brake light switch is by the pedal and when the brakes aren't applied there should be power going in but not coming out. If you got power coming out replace the switch.

Brake Problem


hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
