More than likely its a binding brake. i.e. a sticking wheel cylinder not allowing the shoes to return or a sticking handbrake cable or lever inside the drum.
Last possibility is a worn wheel bearing but thats unlikely to produce a great deal of heat unless it was about to break up. This would be apparent by a fair amount of noise. I'd bet on the first suggestions though.
Cheers John

Is the near side rear brake hub nut left or right hand thread on 2008 Suzuki swift 1.5 thanks'

Most hub nuts are usually standard thread but they can be fitted to a ridiculously high torque setting. This means they can be a ******* to get off. The torque is somewhere around 175Nm, (130ft lbs).
The last hub nut I had to deal with needed a seriously heavy duty breaker bar. A high range torque gun can also be effective.

How do i replace my hand brake cable on my ford falcon XH ute

wait a bit it rear disc or rear drums on that ute

will assume its under dash hand brake pull lever tyoe

the disc setup may have single cables for each rear
rear disk brake cable is approx $ 150

if your XH it is close to the XE and XF set up drums
a complete one line loop cable outer and inner
with plastic grommets along the back chassis rail ( they break )
so the one inner cable works both rear handbrake shoes

hand brake cable is a shorty

undo the adjustment thread
just below the hand brake cable point up somewhere above the gearbox
(drums )
after new cable fitted
drums are adjusted with the old school way with the handbrake adjuster tool
handbrake cable adjusted

then the handbrake handle when pulled out to hold needs14 plus clicks
comes out a long way for some weird reason
on drums
if cable adjustment is done wrong onrear drums the handbrake cable will come loose in the drum as you drive along

75 series landcruiser has no power

It is time to get the engine checked for the error code. The fault can be relative to many issues but primarily the fuel and firing timings. So also the compression and valve timing must be checked. Make sure that there is no brake jamming or faulty bearing , check all wheels for free movement.

How to determine if rear wheel bearings need replaced

If they are very bad car will have loud rumble sound that can get better or worse when cornering. To really check you need to remove rear brakes and try to spin hub with no load. If it spins smooth and easy and has no rough feel or barely moves by hand the hub is bad. Most front drive cars have hub with both inner and outer bearings included. Just replaced them on brother in laws Accord last night and it was only $60 for each at Advance - $129 for both sides, whole hubs with bearings, seals, and ABS ring included.

The abs light is always on while driving and the right tyres vibrate on speed

There is a good chance that the right wheel hub has gone bad and needs to be replaced. The ABS sensor is apart of the wheel hub, there is a speed ring on the wheel hub for the ABS sensor to read which will activate the ABS when wheel lock up is detected. When the wheel hub is damaged or worn, the speed ring is no longer lined up with the sensor and will need to be replaced. A bad wheel hub can also cause the wheel to come off if the bearing inside fail and seize causing it to explode.

Good luck and have your wheel hub replaced soon as possible and try not to drive it on night way speeds till your repalce the wheel hub. Thank you for using Fixya.

1998 f150xl regular cab brakes grab

I had a similar problem with the front disc brakes .... had to replace the calipers. In high corrosive conditions the pistons on the calipers can become contaminated and not operate smoothly ... they stick. The same thing can happen to the wheel cylinders on the rear. Try replacing the wheel cylinders on the rear (fairly cheep fix) and if that fixes them then the calipers would be next. Jim
