Question about 1993 Mazda 626

1 Answer

Hi My 1993 Mazda 626 hand brake would not release the rear left hand side disc. I had the car towed to a brake specialist who cleaned and lubricated a little spring loaded lever which is meant to pull the pads off when I release the brake lever in the car. This worked for about a month, but I then had the brake engage while I was on a freeway. The wheel got very hot and the car was towed to another brake specialist. He is saying I need a set of reconditioned calipers and probably new pads at a cost of $650 Australian. Does this sound right?

I check my prices with this web site www.automd.com click on estimate cost and enter information, I checked my area,(Tucson,AZ. $800) and for a shop that's a fair price.

Car moves when handbrake applied,rear disc brakes.


The hand brake needs adjustment and more than likely the rear disc brakes are worn out. Replace the worn pads before adjusting the hand brake.

I have a 1993 Mazda 626 LX five speed, and my clutch pedal will not go back up. I have pumped it like for 10 minutes, and I can not get into gear. Please help.


Have you checked the clutch master cylinder for fluid? First place I would look. If you don't know what it looks like, it will be next to the fire wall drivers side- looks like a brake master cylinder, but smaller. Just use plain brake fluid in it.

How do I ajust my handbrake on my 2000w mazda 626?


The adjustment is found under the boot for the hand lever. You must remove or lift up the boot which surrounds the hand brake lever. Use a deep socket to tighten the nut on the end of the threaded shaft which is attached to the front end of the emergency brake cable. Make incremental adjustments to the cable. Test by using the hand lever after each adjustment to ensure that the emergency brake does not drag with the hand lever released.

Adjustment of parking brake for mazda626


your rear brake pads may be getting low, the hand brake is a self adjusting type, so to fix it...with the car turned off, release park brake, pump the brake pedal 10-15 times, it should auto maticly adjust itself

Brake Problem


hi im dave
hope i can help
when you had the rear pads applied and the discs turned was there noticeable damage to the disc surface it sounds like your e brake cable is not adjusted properly or perhaps the braided wires inside the insulation are seperating along your brake cable causing the rear brakes to not be adjsting themselves properly. Every time the parking brake is applied the rear brakes are self adjusted if they arent being applied due to slack in or a broken cable you will not adjust your rear brakes. This would accont for the flutter in the brake pedal as hydraulic fluid is still circulating to compress the pads against the rotor but the pads arent reaching the rotor.
