There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

Right rear brake light out


Open the back hatch and (if no screws on the outside of light cover) and look for a "door" or door panel that covers the inner side of the lights. Once this is off, find the brake light buld, twist and pull,or just pull out depending on bulb type. Put new bulb in, put door/cover back on, check brake light.

  1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Remove the wheels and tire assemblies.

  2. Inspect the wheel cylinder for leakage. Service as required.
  3. Remove, clean, inspect and repack the wheel bearings.

Where is the brake fluid cap and line located?


Hi,

The "brake fluid cap" is the rubber cover of the brake fluid reservoir on top of the brake master. It would look like the black cover of the image below.
a9502aa.jpg
The brake line would be the two tubings from the master brake cylinder, one to the front, the other for the rear.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
