Question about 2003 Dodge Neon
The right rear wheel locks up. back up and it will release. drive forward and it locks up again. any idea?
Have a 1996 Neon with the same problem I am currently working on. It did the same thing to me 6 months ago. At that time I changed the brake shoes and the wheel cylinder. Now the problem is back. Pads are still good. I think the problem may be a combination of 2 things. A large lip on the inboard side of the drum and the drum is out of round. The lip is bumping the pads enough to allow the pads to catch and jamb as the smaller diameter of the drum comes around. There is also one area on the inside of the drum that you can see has been hot and left a heat discoloration or scorch mark about 4 inches long. I will see if the drum can be turned. If not I will just replace it. This problem only occurs on wet or slippery pavement at slow speeds. At fast speeds it creates the scorch mark on the inside of the drum.

Right rear lining has come unglued from the metal frame it should be attached to. Replace rear brake linings. I'm sure you have rear drum brakes.
