Question about 1995 Chevrolet Beretta

2 Answers

1996 Chevy Beretta with 69000 miles. Rear brakes seem to grab before the front because the rear end "dives" before the front. With a little more brake pressure, the anti-lock comes on and will hardly stop the car. This happens on dry or wet pavement. I can hear the ABS "motor" when this occurs. This car has been in the family since new and all that has been done to brakes is new shoes and pads at 65000 with drums and rotors both turned. Do you think it is the modulator ***. or am I looking too far into it? Also, do the solenoids come with a new modulator assembly?

Not sure if this will help you much but, my daughter's 94 Berretta did that last week, almost immediately after I washed the car. It was pretty strange. I took the rear tires off and checked the shoes and they looked fine. I just blew everything out with a compressor and WD40'd the adjuster kit, tapped out some of the corrosion build up, put it back together and it has been fine. I checked the front brakes and see they need replaced. The back brakes do work harder when the fronts are worn and that might have been the catalyst to the issue.
Hope that helps!

I wouldn't think that its a problem with abs , sounds like they didnt turn the drums right . they are probably still egg shaped (warped) thats why they lock-up before the front . I would replace them with new ones instead of having them turned . some drums get so warped that they cant get them back round .

Check front end steering linkages for any play, as well as rear brakes for sticking or grabbing as well. Not unusual for a rear brake grabbing, to cause front end to want to wander.

Is there a parts list anywhere for rear brakes for a 1995 chevy beretta


The rear brakes consist of
  1. Drum
  2. Wheel cylinder
  3. Brake Shoes
which you have to get separately at your local part store. The other components can be obtained by purchasing a hardware kit. Which contains springs, keepers, pins....ext One kit contains this hardware for both sides of the rear brake system.

96 chevy beretta..when braking, the left rear of the car squats, left rear tire almost seems to lock up, is this just new brakes time or something more serious?


It sounds like something in the left rear drum is causing it to lock up. It may be contaminated linings, from a leaking wheel cylinder or maybe some broken hardware. You'll have to remove the drum to take a look.

Definitely do the timing belt & plugs if not done already! Depending on how the job goes $300-$500. Rear drum brakes on these cars have a tendency to last a VERY long time(I've seen 150,000 miles) because the majority of the braking gets done in the front.

Spongy brakes 1996 Chevy C1500


You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.
