Got squeaky brakes, hey. Or is it chirping? Squeaky brakes are fairly common on
vehicles that have all four wheels that are disk. Now, chirping is a different
story, it could mean that you will need new disk pads and possible have the
rotators turns and if the can't turn the rotators then they need to be replaced.
Squeaky brakes, glazing on the pads, pad dust, little rocks, brake spiders,
loose adjust spring, and many other possibilities. GB...stewbison
Your not a mine of information here !
The rear brakes (shoes) should be fitted by a competent mechanic and will also have an automatic adjuster (ecentric cam gear) . Hand brake slack and pressing the brake pedal you will hear the rachet gear taking up the free play in the drum assy. Safety first , if your in any doubt, pay some mechanic for peace of mind and your FAMILY'S SAFETY . Good Luck
brake seem to tighten when applied? out of adjustment? rear disk or drum brakes? if disk it might be built into the caliper like mine and the calipers can go bad so they wont set or is drums shoes worn or out of adjustment?
if they are disk brakes, they are not adjustable. if they are drums they should auto adjust. if they are not, then there is a problem that you have to pull the tire, then the drum, to diagnose it. you may have to disassemble the brake shoes and springs, and clean and lube the self adjusters
Your brake light switch is adjusted in all the way and is pressing on the brake pedal. This causes the brake to be slightly applied. As you drive the vehicle the brake fluid heats up and expands, the brakes will apply more and more until you see the smoke. Bottom line: your brakes are always applied at the master cylinder because something(usually the brake light switch) is out of adjustment.
