Your brakes have seized. Remove the wheels and inspect. A firm blow with a rubber mallet to the calliper or a little penetrating oil may free them up, but not adviseable to drive until looked at after freeing up.

You need to replace your rear brake pad linners, you also need rear shocks and shock mounts, If you still hear that nose in the rear then you may need rear wheel bearings.

The steering wheel of my BMW 325i, 1993 model will not turn and its locked.the key will not turn also.


Hi there,

Sometimes if the wheels are turned when the vehicle is turned off, there is stress put on the steering lock plate which can cause the symptoms you are describing.

If this is the problem, it is remedied by turning the steering wheel a little further (in whichever direction the wheels are facing) to take the stress off the plate. Try the key at the same time. It doesn't take much to release the lock pin. The results should be immediate.

Best regards,
Mike

Abs and brake light stay on continously


Could be one of the speed sensors on the front wheels. I believe the sensor comes with the wheel bearing assembly.
