Wheel on 1999 Ford Expedition locking up in reverse
This is the rear drivers side wheel. The others are not effected. Can drive forward just fine.
Started to back out of driveway, vehicle lugged a bit (felt as if E Brake was on) continued to back out and it lock up suddenly. Pulled forward and attempted to back out again, wouldn't move at all in reverse. Checked fluids and fuses, all are fine. Any suggestions as to what could be causing this?

Re: wheel on 1999 Ford Expedition locking up in reverse
Bad Differential or LR- brake caliper is locking up very bad. I am leaning more towards bad differential-(rear end) Take off differential cover and look inside gear may be broken. Contact if you need more help. thanks for using FIX YA

There's something seriously wrong in the transfer case or controls. It seems the rear driveshaft is locked up, and the front wheels are driving. The driver's side rear tire is skidding because it's trying to turn backward - rear passenger rear tire is going forward and rear differential has no option but to turn the driver tire in reverse (driveshaft locked). DON'T TRY TO DRIVE IT. Get it checked out and fixed.
Look for stainless steel clips above the lamp assembly in the support frame around the radiator and grill. Lift these clips straight up to allow the lamp to tilt forward letting you reach behind it to un-clip the pigtail and turn the retainer ring counter clockwise. Pull the bulb straight out the rear of the lamp assembly, keep bare fingers and dirt off the new bulb glass and reverse the order of dis-assembly.
If no oil on the driver side, you have a locked up parking brake pivot. Follow the park brake cable to the inside plate of the rear wheels. on the outside, where the cable connects, look to see the position of the visible mechanism connected to the cable. It probably will not match the side that is not locked up. This is a very common problem; you need to replace the park brake pivot. Additionally, you are going to need to remove the other side axle shaft and get the leaking oil seal replaced. Replace the brake shoes if they have oil on them.
