You have to pull out the ashtray at the back of the center console, then lift the two tabs at the bottom of the housing and pull the housing towards you. When this housing is removed, you will see the e-brake cable, and a large white plastic collar on the cable. With your hand, turn this collar clockwise until you get the proper tension on the e-brake.

No braking assist, rushing sound (air escaping)wheng brake pedal applied.

HI this sounds like the vacuum booster has a leak in the diaphragm. That is why you hear that sound when you push on the brake pedal. With out the vacuum to help this leaves you with a very stiff brake pedal. You will need to replace the Booster which is located behind the brake master cylinder and on the firewall. Good luck

How to replace front & rear breaks?

You really should go to a brake specialist for this job. It is not a task that one can do properly without any prior experience. Brakes are a VERY important part of the car--you do NOT want them to fail due to an improper installation. You would endanger not only yourself but other motorists and pedestrians. So please, spend the extra money and get it done at a local brake service center.

Replacing an the engine in 1993 Volvo 960

It's an inline-6, not V-6.
I'd think you could just drop in a 95' i-6 and use the 95' ecu.

Though, I was unaware that there are any changes.. it should have 60-2 on both, as well as camsynch.
