I think I understand what you are asking. Yes the main brake reservoir holds fluid for both the front and the rear brakes. It will have two inner chambers, that hold the fluid. If one of the chambers is low that tells you which (front or rear) is leaking. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

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..

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE LEFT FRONT AND THE RIGHT REAR BRAKE PADS TO WARE OUT AND THE RIGHT FRONT AND LEFT REAR TO BE LIKE NEW


Sounds like a master cylinder problem.
Some cars have an equalizer valve that is part of the master cyl, and some are external. I'm thinking yours is part of the master cylinder. The front half of the cylinder may be applying pressure to those wheels and rear cylinder is not, or vice versa.

Sounds like a ground problem to me. Bulbs are not getting there ground to complete the circuit so they backfed through the other bulbs.

On the Master cylinder, which line goes to the front and which goes to the back (ABS Brakes)


Since the front supplies over 65% of the braking power, typically the front line ( closest to the radiator) is for the back and the back line is for the front. Master cylinders work in a reverse order; as the pressure is applied from the back to the front, the back activates the front brakes and vice versa.
Hope this helps!

Squeking wheel off and on while driving


get your car to a service centre immediately, squeaking usually indicates worn brake pads, most brake pads now have things called shims, that let out an almighty strange squealing sound that goes on and off as the wheel turns, as you get faster, it gets quicker, it might be front brakes or rear brakes, but make sure you get them all checked, i have had on more than one occasion, front left brake pads ok, front right low, or rear and vice-versa

No brake lights or turn signals head lights and turns work on the front and i have parking lights all around and all fuses are good


It is most likely your brake light switch. The wiring from the brake light switch goes to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is centered both brake lights are connected, unless the switch is faulty. When the switch is to the left only the right light is connected to the brake light switch and vice versa. A bad switch can cause all kinds of problems with the brake lights as well as the turn signals.
To replace, locate the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal (on the mounting bracket). Unplug the connector. Loosen the locking nut and remove the switch. Install the switch and adjust the height so the switch activates at the right position. Reconnect the connector and check for proper function.

My jeep wrangler 1994 manual brake light stays on after a release the handle.


That light usually has two functions: (1) Parking brake is set and (2) hydraulic brakes system failure. I would assume that you have had a failure in the regular brake system, and trouble shoot that. Check fluid level, then make sure all 4 wheels are applying the brakes. Most systems have a split, so you could get a failure of say the front brakes and still have rear, or vice versa, so you might not realize at first that you have a failure, just a longer stopping distance.

Other option is a failure (short) of the switch or wiring harness that is activated by the setting of the parking brake.

Need to know the order in which to bleed the brakes as i have to replace the master cylinder and will be doing it at home!


Start from the nearest caliper to the master cylinder. If it is left hand drive, start from left-front then right-front then left rear then right-rear and vice versa for right hand drive. A tip I learned from a friend is to use a small clear plastic bottle and rubber tubing. Poke a hole through the bottle cap and insert the tube all the way to the bottom. Fix the other end of the tube to the bleed nipple/nozzle and bleed away. I find this to be the most efficient way to bleed brakes without worrying about spilling brake fluid on your garage floor and you won't waste fluid since you can reuse the fluid in the bottle.

Hi my brother just purchased a 1990 suzuki sidekick and at the back near the back axle on passenger side the is somekind of a valve with 3 brake cables going to it. what it it be called so we can look for...


If the lines going to this valve are brake fluid lines and the valve is connected to the axle via a spring on the end of an arm, then it is a load proportioning valve. This valve allows for more rear braking when there is more weight on the rear, and vice-versa.
