You have used up a lot of your parking brake pad. As long as the parking brake stills holds the vehicle, you should be okay.

You have oil leaks getting on the exhaust system, they are getting into the car, have the car checked over to find source of leaks.

SOURCE: can't get front wheel bearing retaining nut to break loose

Air tools? good heavens. Just get some classic coca cola and wait. She goes loose left handed. But make sure you undo the fixing of the nut first (the way it is secured not to turn loose spontaineously). At some cars there is a split pin, Mazda had those deformable ones which you had to cut partially. (And new ones ready)

SOURCE: Land rover Discovery 2004, rear right hand side down 2 inches

If you have the coil spring suspension, then your spring for that corner has really sagged[doubtful] I suspect you actually have the rear air suspension ,and the air spring for the Right/Rear has lost air, allowing the rear end to lower down greatly. Usually, you need a new air spring when one develops a leak. You may or may not be able to see the leak with a spray solution of soapy water after the spring is removed for inspection. Sometimes you have to apply about 20psi of air pressure into the spring to inflate it a bit, then put the spring under water in a big enough tank/tub of water to catch the leak that way.

SOURCE: Smell of burning rubber rear offside wheel area

Hi there! Check out this link.
http://www.automotivehelper.com/topic175126.htm
this link will take you to a forum full of people with CRV's who are having the exact same problem. It seems to be with almost every year of the CRV as well. Unfortunately Honda has no explanation or solution for this problem. I have a 2009 CRV and have not had this smell, but I have been having a ton of other problems with it. I have been incredibly dissapointed with this car, and will never get another Honda. I hope you have better luck than I, and be careful with it cause I think there are some serious problems with these CRV's. Good Luck!

Intermittant screeching noise by rear passenger side


Your description makes me worry. If you have a strange, unknown screeching noise coming from the right rear wheel and now there is a burning smell. Please stop using it and have it looked at as soon as possible. There are a few things that could be the cause of these symptoms. Wheel bearing failure, seized brake caliper or frozen caliper sliders, damaged brake line, seized E-brake cable, or improperly installed brake-pads. In any case, if you continue to drive this car, with these symptoms. You may cause a break-down (requiring a tow), or cause a fire. Let me know if I can answer any other questions or how the repair goes, good luck.

Smell of burning rubber on offside rear wheel. Intermittent. Kia Ceed 113bhp 1.6


I think you are on the right track with the hand brake/ parking brake. A vehicle can still drive if its slightly engaged and you would notice some sort of burning smell from the area. Try engaging the brake and disengaging the brake a few times and see if it releases completely. There may be an issue with the line causing it to "stick" here and there. Good luck! Cars are complicated but troubleshooting the small things before spending hundreds in labour is always wise!

I have a burning rubber smell coming from left rear on my 2001 silverado after driving


You may have a stuck brake shoe. The smell is more likely a burning carbon smell, which would be the break pad itself. You will need to crawl under and see if any visible burn marks or burned wires are present. Outside that, move to the actual break. 1 possible sign would be large amount of "dust" on the wheel and around the actual break, more than with the other 3 wheels.

Sounds like a combo condition concerning your rear brakes and wheel bearings, if the noise was or is louder on right turns then left replace the right side wheel bearing and vice versa.Get this car to a shop however immediately as the ABS brake system may be trying to lock up the wheel that may be wobbling causing all sorts of havoc.

It was driven on a long KM with hand break on


It's possible that you've done some damage.
Depending upon how firmly your parking brake was applied while you drove (clearly not that firmly, if you were able to drive) you could have overheated those rear brakes.
Any decent mechanic can tell you after taking a quick look. The range of what this might cost you runs from nothing, to about $150 if you need shoes, to $350 if you need your drums replaced, too.
In addition, if parking brake is properly applied car shouldnot move at all.
