I think you need to find a new mechanic
and tell him or her to find out why this is happening.
and just an idea
go to a auto parts store like napa or carquest and ask them to recommend someone that is very good with brakes. they know all the shops in your area and know the quality of there service

good luck

Rear brake locks up at slow speeds on 2001 cavalier


i would have the rear brake limiter mechanism checked first as this device regulates brake pressure so it is equal to both back wheels, if this is ok i'd check that the wheel cylinders aren't sticking and that the brake shoe assembly has been replaced properly

2001 Cavalier passenger rear brake locks up at slow speeds, shakes at higher speeds, mechanics changed drums 3 times, keeps coming back


I think it is time to find an accredited brake specialist . At the best with a hub it may be bad wheel bearings but I consider it a problem with the mechanics and their lack of commitment to fixing your problem

How can i unlock abs on my 2001 dodge grande caravan which has locked my right rear wheel


Drum or disk rear brakes? Have you checked the brakes to see if they a o.k.? Is the ebrake stuck and holding the brake on? The abs will not keep a wheel from turning. Since ABS stands for ANTI-LOCK Brake System it would not make sense for the system to "lock" up the brakes since it is designed to keep the brakes from locking up. Your problem is mechanical or hydraulic. A quick inspection of the brake components should reveal the problem.

I need to adjust my rear brakes. 95 camaro


ADJUSTMENT
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assemblies.
  3. Remove the brake drums.
  4. Set drum-to-brake shoe clearance gauge J 21177-A, or equivalent, so that is contacts the inside diameter of the brake drum. Fig. 1: Set the brake clearance gauge to the inside diameter of the brake drum . . . 88149g24.gif

  5. Position the gauge over the brake shoes. Fig. 2: . . . then place the gauge over the outside of the brake shoes 88149g25.gif

  6. Turn the brake adjuster until the brake shoes contact the clearance gauge. The outside diameter of the primary shoe and the secondary shoe will be about 0.050 in. (0.127mm) less than the inside diameter of the drum on each wheel.
  7. After the adjustment is complete, install the brake drum.
  8. Install the tire and wheel assemblies.
  9. Carefully lower the vehicle, then test drive the vehicle, making several stops applying a firm force to the brake pedal. Repeat this until good pedal reserve is built up.

Rear passanger tire locked


You probably have a brake slave cylinder that the pistons have popped out of. You will have to remove the tire and brake drum to take a look. If the components inside the brake drum are loose or out of place, lift the rear end of the car up on jack stands and use the brake panel assembly on the opposite side of the car as a reference on how to rebuild and replace the damaged components on the locked side of the Caravan. You will need a slave cylinder and new brake pads because the old shoes will be fluid fouled.

I had brakes checked, they were good. rotated wheels tires ,rear brakes lock up . Could mechanic have damaged cylinders inspecting brakes.


no, but he could have disturbed dust that can cause the brakes to lock. He might have also loosened the adjuster. Take drums off and reinspect for dust, fluid leaks, and adjustment. You could also try backing up and braking several times to let the brakes adjust up tighter.
