Where the brake cable connects to the brakes there is a nut and bolt on which the brake calipers turn to close and open when the brakes are applied. They open by a spring pushing them outwards and close by the cable pulling them in when the brakes are applied. This bolt needs to be oiled regularly so the spring can disengage the brakes. Oil the bolt and engage and disengage the brakes a few times. If it doesn't free them you might need to loosen the nut a little.

2008 ford taurus would not shift


Yes,the newer cars need a strong battery or funny things happen. You'll need to replace your brake pedal switch or bleed the system properly. don-ohio (:^)

My car lights and brake lights won't work all time


Sounds to me like a brake light switch is sticking or is faulty/bad wires. The switch is connected slightly above the pedal. And they are relatively cheap.

Fixing an old 1977 honda 50cc, but the front wheel only turns about 5 cm before locking in both directions, any help?


I'm thinking that has front brakes. If there is a cable running to hub from handle bars, then yes. Also, look for an arm sticking out from side of center hub that may have had a brake hooked up if no cable from handle bars. Rotating that slightly one way or the other should release brakes, and apply them the other way. If that doesn't work and the linkage (arm) is there for brakes, you may have to pull front wheel and pull it apart to fix.

I had both front brake calipers strip and rebuilt a year ago they are now sticking. would brake cleaner sort this problem


HI, THE TROUBLE WITH BRAKES ON THE OLDER BIKES IS COMMON, AND NOT UNUSUAL FOR THIS TO HAPPEN ON A YEARLY BASIS, MY THOUGHTS ON THIS ARE THE BRAKE CLEANER WILL ONLY REMOVE LOOSE BRAKE DUST ETC, THE TYPE OF STICKING YOU ARE GETTING IS BEST CURED BY REMOVING THE CALIPERS FROM THE FORKS AND CHECKING FOR FREE MOVEMENT OF ALL PARTS, SLIDERS, PISTIONS, PADS, ETC IT MAY BE THIS TIME YOU WILL ONLY HAVE TO SERVICE 1 CALIPER,NO NEED TO REMOVE BRAKE LINES OR DISTURB THE PRESSURISED SYSTEM. WITH 1 CALIPER REMOVED GENTLY PULL IN THE BRAKE LEVER AND CHECK OPERATION OF PISTONS, DO NOT PUSH OUT ALL THE WAY AS THIS WILL CAUSE THE FLUID TO LEAK OUT OF THE SYSTEM, PUSH THE PISTONS BACK HOME GENTLY WITH SOME GRIPS TAKING CARE NOT TO DAMAGE PAINTWORK ON CALIPER OUTER, A SLIGHT RESISTANCE SHOULD BE FELT, IF YOU HAVE TO USE EXTREME FORCE THEN THE CALIPER WILL NEED A COMPLETE SERVICE, PEPEAT OPERATION ON OTHER CALIPER, PAUL

Stick shift is getting locked on park. how can i get this fixed?


When parking on a sloppy place, try enganging the parking brake before releasing yourbrakes and shifting to park. A slight movement while your car is in park may cause slight lock on your stick.

Brake and Parking lights won't turn off, even in "OFF" position - Drains battery


Get under the dash ad look at your brake pedal lever. You will see a stop light switch that screww into a bracket with a 'button' sticking out of it. if pulling up on the brake pedal (even slightly) solves your problem, then the switch needs adjusting closer to the brake lever. If adjusting does not stop problem then replacement of brake light switch may be required.

Unusual brake wear


The two different styles/designs may be part of your ware problem, they may not be made of the same material and maybe warring fastest but I fear that you could have a caliper hanging up. I would go head and install the new bushings in that caliper, so you know they are good and not sticking, with the rest of the brakes all put back together. Press your brake pedal down hard with the rear wheels jack up on stands. Place the shifter in neutral see if you can turn both back wheels fairly easily, the left rear maybe sticking or hanging up. If you don’t find anything, try driving it till you feel it pulling again. Come back and jack it back up, check it again it may have to get hot to act up. If it is hanging up it probable would will not be hard to fine the wheel that is hanging up will be hard to turn. You will feel the drag on it and you may hear it on the rotor. When you release the brake pedal the pads should return far enough to create a little space between the pad and the rotors letting it turn freely.
