    I have the same problem on my 98 civic....feels like the right rear wheel is locking up....makes it difficult in the snow!

    I had that problem on my 95 Escort last winter. I had to replace the whole caliper to get it to stop sticking. I would recommend not using the parking brake until you get this fixed. Good luck

Stuck parking brake


If the car won't move, the parking brake holds the rear wheels in place, and the transmission holds the front wheels. So one set of wheels should be able to turn if you lift them off the ground.

86 honda wagovan right rear wheel locked up


Not sure about the advice above...If your experiencing a rear wheel locking up, I've seen where the emergency brake cable is not releasing and is stuck. Best bet is to have someone operate the E-brake while you watch the cable underneath the car on the right side. If you don't see the cable retracting, clamp a pair of vice grips tightly onto the cable (away from where it could retract into the sheath) and tap the vice grips "away" from the wheel. This will "persuade" the cable to retract, therefore releasing the emergency brake. If that's it, don't use the emergency brake until you either lube it real well or replace it. Good luck!

Right rear tire frozen


Handbrake mechanism, brake caliper or brake piston could be partially siezed or possibly rear wheel bearing siezed. If hanbrake was on over night start with that and then work on from there.

Why is the emergency brake cable very loose


Probabily needs adjustment---
  1. Remove the screw covers, screws and parking brake trim cover.
  2. Turn the adjuster as needed to attain the proper adjustment.

Make sure the brakes do not drag when the parking brake lever is released.
  1. Reinstall the trim cover.
  2. Depress the pedal 2 notches.
  3. Tighten the adjusting nut at the pedal assembly until the rear brakes just begin to drag when rotated.
  4. Release the parking brake lever and check that the wheels do not drag when turned. The parking brake should engage in 3-5 notches when a force of 66 lbs. (294 Nm) is applied to the parking brake pedal.
  5. Lower the vehicle

Its probaly the wheel bearing that seized up, and you have to get the car towed, and get the bearing knocked out and replaced...Um sure the rear brakes are fine, because rear shoes dont really lock up, unless someone overtighten them, after doing a rear brake job...Goodluck...

Right rear brake appears to be locked


Your rear brakes are not releasing. Make sure your brakes are fully released. Pull up and down on it a couple of times.Jack up the rear of the vehicle to get the tires of the surface and see if you can turn the wheels by hand. Brake cable may be bad. do this and post again

Parking brake adjustment


There is adjustment nuts for the cables under the cover on the park brake lever, You may be able to adjust them, but more likely the cable to that side is corroded and needs to be replaced.
