  1. my 1989 Doesn't have any screws on the back panel, must be a different way of removing the headrest on an earlier model.
  2. Thank you Alan for the info, I will remember that if I ever R&R the front calipers. I have not removed anything except the Master cylinder assembly. I got a email from Larry at TC parts and he said it sounds like a bad accumulator and it could have over-heated the relay and melted the wire under it. Regardless of what the solution is I think I should replace the accumulator and relay next. Anyone know how I can check the wire under the relay? Wires to relay box are to short to turn it around to take a good look and I can not tell if its melted. Rich
  3. 1989 TC Royal, No, the red brake light does not come on when the pedal goes to the floor. The brake light and the ABS light both work as the repair manual describe they should when I first statt the vehicle and they go off in a few seconds. When the pedal goes to the floor and if I immediately let up on the pedal and reapply pressure to it I have what feels like a normal brake pedal again but that will only last monentarily before the pedal starts going down again. Sometimes the brake pedal goes down as far as it will go and sometimes it will only go down a little ways and hold. It is not c
  4. I bleed the brakes as Alan instructed at least 6 times. RR wheel first LR wheel next RF third and last the LF wheel. Thats how the Chrysler repair manual described. Ignition ON when doing the rear brakes. It also said it was not necessary to pump the pedal when bleeding the rear brakes it was only necessary to partially depress the brake pedal. I've run 6 qts of new brake fluid thru the system, should be really clean now. My problem hasn't changed, the brakes pedal fades but it is not consistant in the way it fades. Sometimes it is fast and goes down as far as possible, kind of scary when th
  5. Bob, I said the pedal went to the floor, that probably was an overstatement. The pedal went down as far as it will go and I still had my front brakes and everytime the pedal fades and goes down rapidly I have front brakes. The other day I drove the car and I had to apply the brakes hard when a another car pulled out infront of me, it happened so fast I don't know if I lost the rear brakes but my car pulled hard to the right. It felt like the righ front wheel had locked up. I think I said before I had the brake specialist at the former Chrysler dealer do a diagnostic check on my car and he coul
  6. Bob I mean the pump and motor that are attached to the mastercylinder and provide the pressure to the mastercylinder and to the rear brakes. I did not mention before the brake light and the ABS light work as it is described in the owners manual. They come on for a few seconds when the engine is first started and then go off. If I pump the pedal rapidly 4 or 5 times while the veh is running the ABS light will come on but go off a second or two after I stop pumping the pedal. I think it is a intermitant electrical problem or air in the main valve. I have tried to bleed the mastercylinder but I d
  7. I have a 1989 tc, bought new and the only problem I've had in 21 yrs is with the A/C until now. I stopped to get gas the engine was still running and I had my foot on the brake pedal when the pedal sudenly went to the floor. I turned off th engine got the gas and when I restarted the engine everything seemed OK, for a while. Then I had to turn on the head lights and the gages went crazy and the needles on the tach and speedo started bouncing. I still had brakes but I never knew when the pedal would fade, it wasn't consistant. I parked the car for almost 1 yr and decided it was time to fix it.
