Im assumimg its rear drum brakes ! Remove rear drums and inspect for shoe wear - if worn replace and have drums resurfaced ! If ok clean with brake clean making sure to keep your nose mouth and eyes covered to avoid getting brake dust inhaled or swallowed or in your eyes ! There is a adjuster knob on the shaft for shoe tension - some are asseable from a he through the backing plate and others you have to removemthe drum ! Adjust the whell in short increments and turn the the drum by hand until you can slightly feel or hear the shoe touch the drum mate surface - repeat for other sIde

There does not seem to have adjustment to lesson handbrake lever travel on 1996 mustang gt

Check underneath the carriage (under the car). Follow the brake linkage to the hand brake lever. You will probably find a mechanism that you can adjust for the handbrake level.

P0461 Trouble code on 2004 Mits Diamante

this code is for fuel tank level sensor, I don't think this is the reason for high emissions, can you give me the emissions results and I'll see if I can give you better advice?

I'm having issues putting the axle back int he transmission on my 2004 mitsubishi diamante LS

My expertise is with Mits Galants but most of that carries over to the Diamante. The front half shaft axles on the mits galant has a circle clip on the end that slides ionto the trans. I assume the Diamante have the same circle clip. Thes are suppose to be replaced each time you pull the axle but usually you don't have to unless they are bent or out of round. These circle clips are suppose to compress when you shove the axle in and then expand once the axle is in. Look at your axles and if the clips are messed up replace them (the clips not the axle). Ideally the axle just slides in with a good solid shove as long as you have the splines on the axle end aligned. There should be a minor catch from the circle clip as it is being compressed.

Need the code for rddio 97 diamante mits.

Each individual radio has a unique code, like every cars door has a unique key. If you lucky a previous owner may have put the code in the back of the owners manual. You may be able to get the code from dealer as well, although they will likely charge you a small fee.

I used handbrake to stop Disco when being towed to start vehicle. Right foot was on accelerator pedal left foot on clutch and without thinking applied handbrake. Result handbrake locked in off position....

You may need to get underneath and adjust the handbrake adjuster, but you could have done some damage to the transfer box/rear prop/diff as a result of your actions. Best to get it looked at by someone who knows what they're doing to assess any damage.

How do you adjust the handbrake on a 1996 Peugeot 306 XR Hatchback ?

Handbrake is normally mechanically connected to
the brakes by steel cable 1/8 inch thick. At the end of the cables are bolts with adjusting nuts to adjust the handbrakes. These nuts must be adjusted to have an equal tension on the brakes, otherwise, swerving may result. It is advised to have a mechanic todo this job.
