Best Answer

The reason your bake pedal may be moving side to side is because they are not properly aligned. Do not drive a vehicle with this problem, as your brakes may give out.

Either the pedal-arm has a lot of free-play axially on the shaft on which it pivots, or the pivot (s) is (are) worn. The latter would make the pedal move in an arc.

It won't make the brakes "give out" unless the pedal components are worn to the point of risking snapping under hard braking, or if the pedal is so closely linked to the master-cylinder that the play puts an unfair sideways strain on its piston-rod..

What side is the brake pedal on?

In a car with manual gearbox, the brake pedal is usually in the middle. In my first car, the accelerator was in the middle, which caused a few 'interesting' moments!In American cars with automatic transmission, the brake is on the left and the accelerator on the right. On a standard transmission (stick-shift), the brake is in the middle, with the clutch on the left and accelerator on the right.


Where is the brake light switch in a 1988 740 Volvo?

Look under the dash on the driver's side, half way down the brake pedal. When you depress the brake pedal, the pedal moves away from this switch, which allows the brake light pedal circuit to complete, and your brake lights come on. This brake light switch is always hot/on, as required by federal law, so that even with no key in the ignition, if you hit your brake pedal, the brake lights will come on.

How do you put the parking brake on a Murray lawn tractor?

First, push the clutch/brake pedal all the way in (forward) with your left foot. Then, while holding that pedal in, lift the small handle (the parking brake) on the right side of the engine housing (just above the right foot rest area) with your right hand. While holding the small handle all the way up, release the clutch/brake pedal. The pedal will move back only a short distance and stay there. The parking brake is set. To release the parking brake, just push the clutch/brake pedal forward and the small parking brake handle will fall down, releasing the parking brake. By PhilfromPA
