Question about Honda Prelude
Make sure you block the front wheels and leave the car in gear before attempting to lift it. Raise the rear of the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Check for a binding parking brake cable for whichever tire is locked up. Remove the wheel that is locked up. If it's got drum brakes, remove the small rubber plug on the inside of the drum and use two flat screwdrivers to loosen the brake adjuster until you can get the drum off. Check the pads and the drum for excessive wear. Check the wheel cylinder for leaks and replace it if necessary. Check all the springs as well. If any of the springs are damaged, replace all of them (spring kits are only a few dollars). If it has disc brakes, check the pads and rotor for excessive wear. Remove the brake caliper and try to compress it (you will probably need a special tool for this, also only a few dollars at any parts store). If it is frozen, you need to replace the caliper. NOTE: if you replace any wheel cylinder or caliper, you will need to bleed the brake system before attempting to drive! Also, what is done to one side of your brakes should be done to the other at the same time. After all, those parts have most likely been on the car for the same amount of time, and it's imperative to keep the braking force even on both sides for safety's sake. Hope this helps.
