Either the caliper piston is rusted and binding or the brake hose for that wheel is collapsing internally and preventing the caliper from retracting. Check both.

How do I adjust the parking brake on chevy s-10 1994


Under the truck, on the drivers side, about in the middle of the truck is where the adjustment is. You will see the cable from the front going to the back. There is a long threaded bolt on the end on the cable. Lube it up good. and adjust it. If you can't get a good adjustment, replace the front cable, it is stretched to far.

I need diagram showing how to put rear brake shoes on 1994 escort


Adjustment: 1) Start the engine and shift to Reverse. With the vehicle moving backwards, firmly depress the brake pedal several times to seat the shoes in the brake drum. Turn engine off. 2) Remove the console trim surrounding the parking brake lever. This isn't really necessary if you have a deep socket and extension. 3) Pull up on brake lever until the seventh notch is engaged, just listen and count the clicks. 4) If it is out of adjustment and you can't get the seven clicks, turn the adjusting nut located on the drivers side next to the lever. 5) Release the lever, block the front wheels, raise the rear end. Best to put on jackstands. 6) With car in neutral and brake lever released, rotate the rear wheels. The wheels should turn freely, but a slight drag is acceptable. 7) If the lever travels too far or the parking brake fails to hold the vehicle on a hill, tighten the adjusting nut a little more and recheck,

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

A problem with 96jeep grand Cherokee limited,4wd v8, I hear a clicking noise when I make a right turn on passenger side. And something on driver side sounds like a screw dragging. Help?!?


The clicking noise could be a damaged drive axle joint.
The dragging screw sound could be the wear indicator for the brake pads.
Have you had the front brakes checked in the past 6 months?

Lincoln Continental Brake problems Brake on drivers side front lock up traction control light on ABS light on this has been a problem since we got car


Not a problem if you have the ABS System properly
diagnosed

I know what your saying, but common sense says there
are people capable of resolving the issue,you just have
to find that skilled person & one who likes fords

If what you saying is correct & the left front was dragging,
you could not use the car as the hubs would over heat &
you would have resolved the problem long ago.

Truck has set for about 1 year now back on the road the front brakes are dragging like it has check valve in it jsut does it going down the road 1989 2500 2 wheel


You may have a seized disc caliper piston on the front brakes, particularly if the vehicle had been through deep water prior to being stored.
Check that pistons are free to move back into the caliper cylinder if pads levered apart with a suitable tool.
If badly seized the caliper assembly should be replaced or re-conditioned.

Why does my 1996 nissan pathfinders pull to the right when I take my foot off the gas pedal when it is in two wheel drive but not in four wheel


My first thought would be that you have a brake that is sticking, or dragging, or not fully releasing (on the right, front side). In 2-WD it creates a drag on the right side that causes the vehicle to pull to the right.

In 4wd, the front wheels & all 4 wheels are effectively driven at the same speed, so it compensates for the dragging brake.

I'd start there, and also inspect the cv joints and front drive system to see if there is something out of kilter.

I'd consider front end alignment issues, but does not really sound like that is the issue.

How to adjust the parking brake on a 2006 GMC savana, 3500?


there is an adjustment bolt just in front of the rear wheel well on the drivers side. Look for where one cable splits into two cables.



Underneath your vehicle, a steel threaded cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub--then the original cable runs to a threaded end with an adjuster nut in it--and one smaller nut on the end outside of that--(this is the equalizer bar)--you'll see it real close to your transmission.
You might have to jack-up the back of the vehicle???
Pull the parking brake lever up sharply and then release it. Pull the parking brake lever to the second click and leave it there. You're looking for a slight drag of the brake shoes when you spin the wheels. To increase the drag, get under at the equalizer bar and turn the adjusting nut to take up the slack in the cables. Get out and spin the rear wheels if you think it's to tight. I will say don't be afraid to crank on it for a while as in this case, a little adjustment really does not go a long way. When you think you have the drag right, go back in the car and pull the brake up the the fourth click. At this point the wheels should be locked and you should not be able to turn them even when trying hard. If you can, tighten them up a little more. Once you've done this, release the brake and make sure the wheels spin freely. If they are still binding due to the parking brake, back off the adjustment a little. And that's basically the whole adjustment procedure.

Rear anti lock brake light & brake light on in 1991 ford 350e m/h


If the brake light and alb lights are on u need to get it checked out, as this is a warning of a brake problem, and u could find yourself w/out brakes.
1st check the easy things, is tire pressure what it should be in the rear tires? Low pressure on one side would result in the tire running hotter than the other properly inflated side. Is the emergency brake completely off? If on even slightly, it can turn on the brake light. Is brake fluid at the proper level? If low, the brake light will go on. If it's low, u must check for leaks to see why it's low. The abs light on indicates a problem w/ the system, it could be as simple as a broken wire at the rear wheels. u may also have a brake dragging on the rear pass. side, causing the brakes to overheat, which could result in heat transfer to the wheel, and then the tire. This can be checked by jacking up the vehicle (~if u have a sturdy enough jack), and with front wheels blocked front and back, in neutral, engine off, turn wheels in back, see if resistance to turning is the same, or if brakes are dragging, u should be able to tell. Let me know how u make out.
