Defective brake drum components. It maybe a detached return spring or loose brake shoe mounting.

I have 2003 gallant, Islammed on the brakes really hard, tried to drive the car from that spot, go in gear but wouldn't move, front wheels roll, rear wheels are locked up.


If rear brakes are drum-type it is possible the shoes are jammed on the drums. They are normally retracted from there by springs, but if there is breakage or corrosion they can jam in place. One place corrosion occurs is in the wheel brake cylinders, so then the pistons do not return properly,

The same can happen with disc brakes as the pads are normally pulled back after application, just a little, by the springiness of the rubber parts on the pistons. So if there is corrosion in the calipers the pistons can stick.

Then, if disc brake pads are worn right down, I have heard of cases where the piston popped right out of the caliper on heavy braking, or else turned a bit sideways and jammed on. It should never happen, but apparently did.

If disc brakes you should be able to see this when the wheel is off. The calipers can then be removed. If drum brakes try hammering on the outside rim of the drums, this way and that, to get enough de-jamming to get the drums off.

Brake jam in two wheels and car dose not move


is it jammed on the rear brakes ? if so then try shaking the rear handbrake cables underneath and hitting the back plate when its off , choc the wheels so it wont move then if possible drive backwards as it sounds if the cables or linkage needs lubricating ! if its not the handbrake then you need to back off the pads or shoes then remove all and clean and grease and check for wear etc !

Brakes jammed on


The causes and remedy for brake jamming:
As a first aid, loosen and then tighten any one of the front wheel bleeding nipple. This will free up the brakes.
- Front calipers pins jammed. (Re-grease the pins with graphite grease)
- Front calipers pistons jammed. (Remove the caliper one by one, do not remove the brake pipe, depress the brake pedal only one time then release, lift the caliper boot at one side with abrupt tool, just as we lift up our eye lid with thumb and index finger, pour few drops of brake oil DOT 3 into the boot, push back the piston to allow the caliper to fit on pads.
- Rear wheel's pistons jammed. (Free up the pistons, inspect the brake washers, replace rear wheel cylinders if brake washers are found swollen).
- Brake master cylinder defective. The brake jamming problem often arises when the brake master cylinder washers swell up due to aging or using wrong grade of brake oil. In such cases the washers expand and block the return line of the brake oil. If so, replace the brake master cylinder with original one.

Traction control light is on d car is making loud noice wont move


The traction control will signal when there is a difference in speed of wheel rotation from one side to the other. Sometimes an Emergency brake can come apart inside the drum and jam a wheel.

A worse case condition would be a stripped differential gear on the axle shaft. The wheel sensors may pick up the difference in rotation of the remaining shattered parts.

Only a few things to do to see how bad stuff is. Elevate both rear wheels, put transmission in neutral and try to move rear wheels. If 1 does not move, it is either jammed inside the differential or jammed
out in the brake drum.

Try getting jammed side brake drum off. If still jammed, the differential cover needs to come off.

196 Tacoma wheel feels like it is locked up


Pull the hand brake. Block the rear wheels and transmission in neutral. Jack up the front wheels, first rotate the right wheel and if it slightly resists, its normal.Similarly check the left wheel also. If any one of the front wheels is hard to rotate, remove the Tyre and service the caliper assembly by greasing the pins with graphite grease. Also check the piston of the caliper assembly if it is not stiff. If so, free it up or replace the caliper kit with a genuine one on both sides. Always service both the front and rear brake system simultaneously.
If both the front wheels are jammed, the probable cause is the brake master cylinder assembly which need to be replaced with a new one.
If both of the front wheels are found to be normal, lower the front wheels and lift up the rear wheels. If any of the rear wheels are found to be partially of fully jammed, readjust the rear brake system or hand brake cable.

1999 F250 4x2 - was stored for 3 months and when I tried to move it - the right rear wheel turns but the left rear wheel won't turn. Took off the brakes and caliper - still won't move. I can move...


Hello, The rear rotor has 2 sets of brakes on it. The other thing is to look for slight movement in the driveshaft when it clunks. Depending on the rearend, some have to have both rear wheels off the ground to turn each side. And of course the trans in Neutral.

With the rear wheel you have an Emergency brake and a drum brake inside the center of the Rotor.
The rear of the brake backing plate has a rubber plug which is covering the Star-wheel adjustment for those drum brakes. You can try to loosen the Star-wheel to disengage the Emergency brake shoes. You can try pulling the brake cables toward the cab, to loosen the cables.

If this does not help, your Emergency brake shoe probably rusted off the brake mount and is jammed inside the drum. The linings fall off the metal like banana skins. I can tell you that if the Emergency brakes are a State safety requirement, you need to consider new rotors because the drum portion is usually trashed with rust.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.

Left rear brake wont bleed, no pressure. right rear brake ok


First check that the bleeder screw and the bleeder hole in the brake cylinder are not blocked. If these are clear check that the flexible pipe to that wheel has not collapsed internally and created a non-return valve. Check also the brake pressure equaliser valve that it has not jammed and that the operating lever moves freely (although this would affect both rear wheels unless it is a cross-over brake system). If none of the above help, follow the brake pipe from the left rear wheel and loosen connections till you bet a flow of fluid when the pedal is depressed, then work back from there to locate the blockage.

My back right wheel locked why and what can I do


The exact same thing happened to my 2004 Aveo on the same side. I had it towed to the mechanics and they informed me that GM glues the shoes to the pads and when they seperate they jam up and that locks your wheel. I had to get new brakes on the back so I just did the entire car in case they were all like that. Hope this helps.

REPLACING LEFT TIE RODS


Genreally speaking the outter tie rod is only worn. The inner connection to the rack is more of a coupling than a rod end. You will need a 22 mm openend wrench and probally a 16mm and a 18mm opened wrench. A set of pliers to remove the old and bend the new cotterpin. Remove wheel cover and loosen the wheel nuts. Jack up the car and place jack stand or wood blocking, (or as a minimum place the wheel you removed) under the car to prevent the car from falling on you while it's in the air. Do not rely on the jack to keep the car up. Cars are heavy. remove wheel Loosen jam nut that locks the tie rod end to the connecting rod of the steering rack, spray adjustment treads with penetetrating oil to help it spin free. You may have to lock the adjustable shaft by the placing wrench on the hex portion of the shaft just inwards of the tread. Remove the cotter pin from the tie rod end. Remove nut. Take hammer and drive the tie rod from the steering knuckle. To help with the alignment of the front wheel try not to move the the steering knucle brake assembly. Unscrew the tie rod , lubricate the tread and in stall the new one. adjust the treads so that the tie rod slides back into the steering knuckle without turning the knuckle. Install the tie rod nut, tighten and secure with new cotterpin. Do not tightnen the jam nut that locks the tie rod nut to the inner adjustment rod for the steering rack, instead place the wheel back on the car, lower car and finish tightnen. with the car lowered, position the car steering wheel straight. Look at right side wheel. You should be able to line the the edges of the front wheel with your eye's with the outside edge of the rear wheel. if this doesn't line up check steering wheel postion. Now after seeing what the wheel alaignment looks like on the right side, go to the left side. If you look along the outside of the left ire and you see the tread of the rear tire , you have to muckh toe out. Lenghten the adjustmne t rod by turning it clockwise. If when you look along the edge of the tire and you don't see the rear tire, turn the rod counter clockwise. Adjust slowly and always check that the steering wheel is in the straight position. Once you have it fairly close to straight, lock the jam nut on the tie rod and take to a wheel alignment company for finishing adjustment. Good luck.
