I think you have a 2006 CB600F. If so then the diagram shows the assembly. Remove the outer bolt on the switch, then remove the inner bolt. You will need to hold the nut as you remove the inner bolt. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

    MY BAD !!! I got sidetracked and gave a totally wrong answer. FixYa doesn't allow diagrams on comments so I can't attach a diagram. Go to the site below and you can view the brake pedal assembly. It should be easy to remove as you can see the components. Please forgive the error.

Changed brake light switch but brake lights remain on in 1998 ford escort

Hi Demetris, I'm glad to help!

Sometimes but not always, the piece on the brake pedal that touches the brake light switch to turn off the light will get bent away from the switch so its not touching it. Check to see if it is touching the switch, pull the pedal toward you and see if the lights go out. If they do go out then 2 things may have happened. (1) The metal bracket is bent and not touching, which you can bend back into place. (2) Some vehicles have what you call a return spring that connects to the dash and runs to the pedal to pull it back toward you to turn off the lights. If you see a spring dangling under the dash, then you'll need to replace that spring. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Demetris.

1991 ultra glide classic...brake problem .. the rear brake is locking up. The master cylinder has been rebuilt the lines have been flushed and the rod and cup have been replaced , but the rear brake keeps...

You have one of two possible problems. The first being the master cylinder plunger may not be returning back far enough to relieve the pressure on the rear brake system. Check to make sure you have at least a little bit of free travel in the pedal, about a half inch. Also, in the very bottom of the master cylinder reservoir, there are two holes. A large hole and a small hole of about 0.030". Make sure the small hole is not blocked. Do not drill the hole larger. The other problem is that the rubber brake hose could be damaged due to it being bent to a too tight radius when the brake job was done. The brake hose has multiple layers and the inside layer may have broke loose. This allows the high pressure fluid when the pedal is depressed to pass but not let the low pressure pass back to the master cylinder when the pedal is released. Install a new hose. I hope this helps.

Good Luck

The rear brake lights are staying on when car is off and brake pedal isn't applied.I replaced brake switch and disconnected the multifunction switch.They remain on.What is causing them to stay on?

The tricky part about replacing the Stoplight switch is positioning it perfectly - the bracket holding the switch must be in the right place (unbent), and the large nuts mounting the Brake light switch to the bracket must hold the switch at just the right distance from the flange on the brake pedal which actuates the brake light switch - or else the switch will think that the pedal is being depressed even though its not.
One problem that comes up is that these brackets may get bent
over time (especially with panic stops and/or collision(s) in the history of the vehicle), and the automotive electrician must then unbend metal to properly install a Stoplight switch.

Here's a picture of the Stoplight switches used in 2003 Grand Ams:

I have a new trike that may have ome shipping damage (bought at flea market) The rear axel appears to be bent. severe wheel wooble. is there some adjustment in those set screw type bolts in the center of...

The set screws in the center of the axle are there to keep the axle centered in the frame. Only the right wheel is powered which also means only the right wheel brakes when operating the rear brake. This is because the rear wheels must be able to spin independently when turning because the outside wheel will move faster. Unfortunately no one builds differentials at this price.

If you have wheel wobble you need to determine if the axle is bent or the wheel is not true. Prop up the rear of the bike on a stand and remove the problematic wheel. Manually pedal the bike and check the axle as it spins. If the axle is wobbling then it is bent and will need to be replaced. If it spins true then the wheel is the culprit.

The axle is relatively inexpensive and can be ordered through a Schwinn dealer. Any bike shop should be able to true a wheel for around $15-$20.

Brakes stay soft even though they have been bled and the brake booster replaced. It sounds like there is an air leak somewhere. I replaced the master cylinder as well then they were bled and still I have...

If there are no brake line/fitting leaks and no crimped or bent brake lines/hoses:
The key to my answer is the sound of air leaking...
Check the Brake Booster to the rear of the Master Cylinder.
1. Check the Vacuum Hose going to the Air Resonator with the one way check valve. Make sure the Vacuum Hose does not have cracks, holes, etc.; or does not collapse with the engine on. If there are any problems with the hose - replace the hose. With the engine on: remove the Hose for the Resonator and check for a vacuum. CAREFULLY: Remove the Resonator and reconnect it to the Vacuum Hose. Again check for the presence of a vacuum coming from the inside of the Resonator. If the Hose had a vacuum, but the Resonator does not = Replace the Resonator. If there is a Vacuum - Reconnect the Vacuum Hose and Resonator to the Brake Booster

2. Checking the Brake Booster Seals:
a. While the Engine is running: Push in the brake pedal. Stop the Engine while keeping the Brake Pedal pushed in.
(1) If there is a change = the Brake Pedal sinks to the floor: The Brake Booster has a Air Leak.
(2) If there is no change = GO TO TEST 2 (#3 below)

3. Turn the engine on and wait a couple of minutes and turn the engine off. Push in the Brake Pedal several times.
a. If the Pedal goes down farther the first time, but continues to rise = gets harder after the 2nd, 3rd time the Brake Booster is fine.
b. If the Pedal continue to go farther down on each push = the Brake Booster has a leak.

One seal in particular - located where the Brake Booster is attached to the Fire Wall - located behind the Brake Pedal Arm. Check the mounting bolts for tightness. With the engine on and a partner pushing on the Brake pedal: try to determine if that rear seal is where the air is leaking from.
Any Air Leak in the Brake Booster Main Seals = a new (remanufactured) Brake Booster must be purchased, as these are not repairable.

Let me know if this helped. or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at!

Parking brake pedal goes to floor

The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.

Soft pedal,30 percent brakage

Air in Brake system need to be bled or master-cylinder is BAD. Noise in rear can be alot of different things NOT related to Soft pedal for example bent backing plate,wheel bearing etc. I would recommend removing brake drum and take a look at brakes in the rear contact if you need more help. Good Luck. Thanks for using FIX-YA
