It will be either your rubber break hose that connects to caliper or your caliper piston is stuck. The way to check it is take it off all the way and try to push the piston in by hand, if it goes in then the prob is the hose if it is really hard to push in or doesnt go in at all then it is your caliper piston that is stuck.

SOURCE: How do auto reverse brakes on a trailer work?

Forward Braking
The actuating force for the wheel brake is generated during braking of the towing vehicle, as the trailer tends to overrun and
pushes the drawtube in. This force is transmitted to the expander devices in the wheel brakes via the overrun lever, brake rod,
compensator and brake cables.
As a result, the brake shoes are pressed against the brake drum. The resulting friction from contact of brake linings and drum
produces the required braking.
On releasing the brake on the towing vehicle, the drawtube returns to its original position and the brake shoes are released from
the drums by means of the tension springs.
Auto-Reverse
During reversing the drawtube is pushed in and the brake shoes press against the drum (as in forward braking).
When the trailer wheels are in reverse, the reverse rotation, combined with the friction generated from drum and lining contact,
causes the sliding shoe to slide on its carrier towards the adjuster.
This displaces the sliding shoe radially inwards away from the drum. The drawtube may then travel fully to its end stop without
applying further force to the brake shoes and the trailer can be reversed without any difficulties.
Changing direction from reverse to forward travel results in the drawtube being pulled out, allowing the sliding shoes to be
returned to the forward braking position by means of the tension springs.
From this guide which contains more information also.

Landrover discovery Td300 1998


the rev counter on the 300tdi disco takes its speed signal from a wire connected to the back of the alternator (single spade type connector) this wire usually breaks rewire and should be ok

cruise faults are usually caused by a vacuum pipe splitting check all the vac pipes to the cruise control actuator in the engine bay and at the brake pedal switch of end are split cut off and refit pipe

96 landrover disco power steering pump bracket broken off


Really stupid question but did you get the correct belt and did you adjust the belt tensioner? On vehicles with spring type tensioner it must be pried back and then released. Slide type tensioners are usually either part of the pump bracket or alternator bracket assembly.

Problem with electronic hand brake screeching and showing an error on the display on my LR3 land rover discovery 3 , 2004 discovery 3 2.7 TDv6 HSE, its out of warranty (have done 22,000 miles) and have...


Just had this same issue with my 57 plate Discovery SE - great guy from the AA took the small plate off that sits immediately to the rear of the hanbrake button in the central console - he then hooked a wire around the cable you see in there and gave it a mighty tug. The result is that my brake is now disengaged (rather than stuck-on as before) and LR will need to cure the source of the problem under warranty. Car is automatic so can use "park" until full repair.
