    hi from uk for the wheel to lock up as you say ? then may i suggest ? you chock the front wheels fore and aft then raise the locked wheel? if still locked ? the possibilities are that one of the brake shoe return springs has snapped if yours is drum brakes?? another is possibly ?the wheel bearing on that wheel has collapsed and locked? OR the heavy bang you heard may have been that there has been a collapse of that wheels suspension allowing the h/brake cable to tighten due to rearward movement ? not uncommon did this happen as you were braking ? if rear brakes are disc ? check pads and do a full visual/physical check on rear suspension anchorage points hope this helps? please come back with any update ?

The calipers on the disc brake models do seize commonly either staying on,as in locking the wheel or not braking that wheel at all.

Starter suddenly stopped working. Loud bang when


It's most likely a timing problem, you may try too adjust it yourself; Loosen set screw on distributor and get a timing light. there also a chance it jumped a timing gear when you heard the loud bang..

2004 Hyundai Elantra Fuel Door


Check inside the trunk on the side of the fuel door. Most manufacturers make an emergency release handle for just such situations. It may be behind the trunk liner but should be on the same side of the vehicle as the door is.

Can't pump gas into tank when the outside temp is below freezing


That is an issue I have never heard before, but I would pour some gas line antifreeze into your tank. It sounds like you have some trapped water in the tank.
