Its A Rear Tire Id Guess Its Gotta Be A Problem With The Brakes And Not The Brake Pad. I Would Recommend Taking It To A Mechanic If Thats Not An Option Get The Book. Jack Up The Vehicle And Remove The Suspicious Tire. Mark One Spot On The Drum And One Spot On The Center Hub. Then Check The Inside Of The Drum Once Removed And Inspect it Also Check Your Brake Pads. Not Many People Know That Drum Pads Release Outward Instead Of Inward Like Disc Brakes. Hopefully This Will Help You

One Rear Brake, drivers side is heating up after you drive for a period. what can I do to repair this?


It's most likely the caliper but could be the brake pad has come loose and is riding against the drum. Remove the tire, remove the drum, it sill probably stick if the pad is loose or the caliper is not releasing. Make sure the emergency brake isn't pulled. There should be some slack in the cable that operates the emergency brake. If the caliper is stuck replace the caliper. If the shoe came apart then replace the shoes on both sides of the vehicle.

Try using super penetrating oil like WD-40 or Liquid Wrench and spray this on the "exterior" of the cable in the vicinity of any "bends" in the cable near the wheel. After liberally applying the super penetrating oil, wait 10 minutes (allow to soak in to break rust free) and then attempt to turn the emergency brake on and off several times to put pressure on the brake and release it. you can also help the spring activated "return" feature of the brake by moving the brake shoe in and out with your hands when parking brake is in the released position. Be careful not to pry on anything delicate...

Emergency brake stuck, pedal release broken


What happens is the brake cables rust inside the cable sheath and then they won't slide easily. There's no good fix for this other than replacement. It's not easy to even find where they are stuck.It might be possible to find the end of the cables at the back wheels and pull the cables back---to release the tension

MY EMERGENCY BRAKE IS STUCK WHEN I DRIVE (STD TRAN).THE HANDLE TO PULL THE BRAKE ON PULLS OUT AND BACK IN EASY AND DOESNT LET ME RELEASE THE BRAKE. ANY WAY TO FIX THIS?


jack up the truck, remove back brake drums and loosen emergency brake hardware next to calipers.  Reassemble and lubricate all cables.
That's it in a nut shell.

2000 pontiac emergency brake stuck. how do i


Are you in a Northern Climate were road salt is used during winter? The emergency brake problems I have encountered tend to be due to rust and corrosion accumulating on the wires and metal pivot points that operate the brake via the emergency handle on the center console.

Get underneath the car (chock the wheels---ALL FOUR! with bricks or large chunks of wood---be sure the car is in PARK!) and find the wire that connects to the handle of the brake---follow it to the rear brakes, and you will see a split where it goes to the L and R sides via a sliding clasp of steel that looks like a C, and has wires running over the top, and to each rear brake.

At this point, grab the wire on one side of it and PULL HARD several times, slack between pulls. Do this for each side---that should release the assembly, and the shoes from holding the drum.

After you have done this, lubricate the pivot points and the wire connection to the brake handle with TRI-FLOW (NOT WD-40)or another teflon based lubricant.

Rear brake pads junk rotors junk front pads full,uneven,low miles


emergency brake cable may not have been adjusted properly or emergency brake may have been partially engaged without brake light indicating such. Check brake release handle, if it makes no noise as to indicate realease, then it would have to be the e brake adjustment or frozen brake cylanders that when brakes are applied the pressure presses the shoes against the drums but does not release pressure, could be bad cylanders but not likely on both sides at the same time.

Emergency break pedal stuck to floor, but break is disengaged


sounds like your brake cable has broken or there is something damaged in the pedal assembly.........try pulling on the release handle and move the e-brake pedal back to its off position by hand at the same time.(you may have to tie it in this position to keep it up)If that doesnt work there is a sensor on the pedal assembly that you should be able to bypass by either disconecting the wire(1 wire system) or connecting the two wires together (2 wire system)Especially if your truck is a standard the e-brake is an important safety feature,so if these steps fix the light and dinging problem you should still take the steps to have it repaired.
hope this helps.........Good Luck!
