Have the antilock brake system checked, did this start after a brake job?

Brakes on my 05 trailblazer locked up while driving and the vehicle won't move.


ALL brakes locked up, or just rear? Rear could mean differential is locked up...Sounds more likely while driving it, as cars now have a front or rear valve so all brakes are not lost at one time..

1996 Ford Thunderbird LX V8 Automatic Transmission shudder


Check rear emergency brakes if you have 4 wheel discs. When soot and brake lining fall to bottom of assembly they jam and shudder until wheels start rolling fast enough to scatter debris.

Also if posi equipped there is a needed rear-end additive to help clutch plates work. Perhaps clean rear-end lube and additive is needed.

Rear brakes wont apply consistantly


1- brake system low on fluid,
2- improperly bled (air in lines).
3- Master cylinder (applies equal pressure to all 4 cylinders) is bad.

Mercedes SL 500 2002 model, brake pad removal


Hello, When you are looking at the caliper, you should see two pins holding the pads in. Look for the holes or the ends of the pins and drive them toward the inside of the caliper until they come out. Then take a large screwdriver or large channel locks and pry the pads away from the rotor. Now you should be able to take the pads out. When installing the new pads, you will have to put the pins back from the back side until they are flush with the caliper. When finished, make sure you pump the brake pedal until it comes up to the normal level before trying to move the car.
I hope this helps.
