From the bottom of car, look for the hand brake cable connected to rear wheel. Find the nut with bolt and loosen the bolt or tighten it.

Can I change my 1998Volvo S70 emergency brake or is it a job for dealership? I have fixed many things myself. If yes, how do I fix them?


What is the problem with your emergency brake?

If it is the shoes, you just need to remove the rear brake rotor to access the e-brake shoes. If it is the cable that needs adjusting, you can access it by removing the center console.

How do i remove the dash board for a volvo s90


You are in for a bear of a job. GET THE CODE FOR THE RADIO before you disconnect the battery - there should be a credit-card sized card in the owner's manual with the code, alternatively clever previous owner may have used a sharpie to write it on the radio itself. The dealer can get it by the VIN if it's the original radio.

That said, the dash mostly comes out. The heater core is against the firewall in the center over the transmission tunnel.
You work your way in from both footwells and by removing the radio/AC panel etc.

I'll link the best instructions on the job that I've seen. Volvo 700 900 Heater Core Replacement


Two things - if you're in a relatively warm climate, you can bypass the heater core with a piece of pipe between the hoses under the hood.
Alternatively, you could try pouring a third of a bottle of "Bar's Leak" leakstopper. It's for radiators so don't use the whole bottle, just a bit to stop the leak, add a little more if it still drips into the car.

That's a good fix for another year if you're not planning on keeping the car. Please, PLEASE, disclose that if you do sell the car to someone else so they don't get stuck with an unexpected repair.

Describe your Hyundai Problem Were do you adjust


This will require you to take the center console out for a better view and to more easily access and adjust the hand brake.

the book is correct it is under the hand brake itself and very easy to adjust once you get the console out of the way its held in by screws and you will have to take it totaly out.

you need two wrenches to adjust the parking brake and that's it.. remember to leave it in the down position when adjusting it and pull it up after about every 3 full turns turns just to check to see how tight you have it. you don't want to over tighten it
the emergency brake will be on all the time and wear out the brake pads. this sounds harder than it really is. the hardest part of the whole thing is getting the console out of the way once that is done you will be able to see how its done

Were do you adjust handbrake crv r/h drive 2003


dear in most cases it will be very hard to reach adjuster but there is another way to get ur hand brake better

required tools

1- lift jack "big one"
2- proper wrench
3- car supports for safety
4- screw driver


now u have to do the following:-

1- lift up the car from the rear middle but be sure it is in NORMAL gear and hand brake is down
supports for front tires is highly recommended
2- remove both of your rear wheels put wheels under the car as if suddenly car fall it will fall on tires and nothing bad will happen
3- put car supports and both sides of rear Axle for more safety
4- now u can see your brake discs, near center of brake discs u will find a removable knob remove it by screw driver and see in side u will see the hand brake clutch push it by ur screw driver towards the center of the wheel until the maximum u can get
5- repeat last step for the other brake disc
6- restore the knob push it hard using screw driver
7- fix ur tires back, remove supports, lower the car and u r as good as new

hope this will help

regards

How to access to S90 Transmission Control Module?


This vehicle doesn't have that type of connector for reading the codes. You have the diagnostic connector in the center console, next to the e-brake under a rectangular cover.

My volvo 1998 s90 has a miss when it heats up.


Start with getting the fault codes checked! My guess is a bad ignition coil or a vacuum leak, but they are guesses. A little diagnosis is required before replacing any parts!
