The easiest way is to take the panel off and raise it that way, if you don't ever roll down the window or you can't get the regulator for awhile, you can block it in the up position with a piece of wood or something. Good Luck Tim

Handbrake light


the cable runs along the underneath rail of the car on the left side. It is an obvious cable, like a wire type, kinda thicky. inspect that, and smooth any kinks out, possibly tighten it or perhaps a clip came out and its stretched on something foriengn. just smooth cable, do not stress because the parking break cable will re-release itself and you may want to disconnect the positive battery for a 30 second count and reconnect and the light on dash should go away permanently unkless it sticks down the road. you do not need to pull the handle so tight it experiences these situations. just gently pull up, click click type thing, make sure its engaged and you should depress brake pedal and raise handle when you go to release this parking brake, and make sure your key is in ignition, car running and then depress brake pedal with foot, as you gently pull up, depress clicker button and proceed slowly down which should dis-engage this parking brake and allow free vehicle movement to drive. good luck

My rendezouv rear driver window is stuck down. I want to get it to stuck in the up position. How can I release it from the down spot.


You can remove the door panel and unclip the electrical connector. Apply battery voltage and ground to the motor terminals. Switch polarity if the windows goes the wrong way. There is no mechanical way to move the window up unless you cut the cables and then jam the window in the up position with wood. Either way, you'll have to remove the door panel.

1986 Fiero: my e brake on my 85 fiero is stuck and i need it t...


It probably got stuck from lack of use/lubrication. But if your lever is also stuck up it could be a function of the actual lever action. I'm assuming you tried pushing the button in to release the lever?

Step 1) Get a haynes manual if you own a fiero, VERY valuable tool

Step 2) Check the physical action of the lever, is the lever not releasing down because of the lever itself? --> frozen/rusted? something physically blocking it on the floor of the car? Or is it not releasing due to the cable tension?

It's been awhile since I looked at it, but there should be a way to take the cover off of the lever to see the cable come into the shaft from underneath the car. Follow this cable to the rear of the car where it goes to the driver side rear brake caliper, then across the car to the passenger side caliper. You can adjust the tension for the cable using the nuts on the cable.


Also, there is a spring on each caliper that is supposed to put tension on the cable when pulled, so when released the cable returns to driving position and thus releases the brakes. Are these springs missing?

Are the brakes engaged because of the e-brake being stuck?

If you are in a pinch and need to use your car and can't because the brakes are on due to a stuck e-brake, it's not smart and can be illegal in your state, but you could just cut the e-brake cable. Should be pretty easy to do where it meets the lever on the inside of the car.
