SOURCE: hand break does not release

Big problem sounds like car has been left with handbrake on for a long period and not used,now they are stuck which is caused by damp corroding the drum which sticks the shoes to the drum.Old trick ------ release handbrake and try going backwards,shoes have a leading edge and lock into drum increasing braking efficiency for foreward motion but dont worry about the technicals just try it.If it still doesnt work call a mobile mechanic,What a tool though,i have a sovereign XJ6 4 litre and what a set of wheels i slow down at 200kms as anything over is now a automatic jail sentance here in spain ,but had some great burn offs with porches and mercs on the motorway with this car,but i couldnt outrun a helicopter though .

SOURCE: Timing belt replacement for a 1999 Audi A4(elective)

Well, the labor on this specific Audi will be 5.5 hrs+ parts. the labor depends on the shop. every shop is different. lets say you brought it to my labor charge is 50 dollars an hour so, that will be a $275.00 labor charge added to the part cost which would be $220.44 for the timing belt and tensioner combined. this brings you to a total of $495.44 for the total repair. Keep in mind, this figure was calculated on the basis of a 50 dollar an hour labor charge. it can flucuate ethier way, depending on what shop you take this vihical to. I must say that, its better to replace it before it breaks and, it is a good rule of thumb to replace the water pump as well at the same time as this repair.

Please rate and have a great day:)

SOURCE: Problem with break caliber and pedal and rotor 99 corolla

you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help

SOURCE: screeching in right rear wheel ,sound stops when

Have the brakes checked out. It could be way past time for brake replacement.

[Disc brakes have a piece of metal attached to the brake pad, that when the lining of the brake pad is worn down to the replacement level, the metal touches the brake rotor. {Actually the metal is part of the Brake Pad Inner Shim, for a 2006 Kia Sedona}

There is a metal to metal screeching sound. A sign that the brake pads need to be changed Pronto!

(If it isn't taken care of as soon as possible, that piece of metal will score {Cut} the brake rotor. This could lead to where the rotor cannot be safely turned on a brake lathe, and the rotor will have to be replaced.

Rotors cost a Lot more, $$$$$ than simple brake pad replacement!)

If your Sedona has drum brakes in the rear, the lining of the brake shoe has worn down to the metal backing, and now there is metal to metal contacting. (Instead of brake shoe lining to metal drum surface)

Again, a screeching sound may be produced. This situation warrants immediate attention! The brake drum can also be turned by a brake lathe, but it is just like a brake rotor for a minimum thickness that it can be lathed to.
(Cut to)

Brake rotors resemble a flat disc, and there is a minimum thickness that they can safely be cut, (Lathed), down to.
Brake Drums resemble a round cake pan, and the outside thickness can only be cut, (Lathed) out so far. (Minimum thickness for safety.
Either Drum Brakes or Disc Brakes were offered on the 2006 Kia Sedona.

Why does my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo rear tires lock up when driving or turning

If both tires stop, the car cant move, anyway! If you turn to one side and the inner wheel seams as it stops, maybe the you need to replace the clutch's in the read differential. The rear axle has two clutch packages that look the rear axle if one wheel rotates faster then the other side. It's also known as a limited slip differential, but on a JGC the axle has this clutch packs that avoid any slip in the diff. If these packs are worn out you need to replace them.
If it happens, try to roll back some feet and drive straight forward. If both wheels are rotating normal, replace this clutch's. If that don't work, remove the wheels, open the brake drums and look for broken brake shoes, loose springs or worn out bearings. Lift your car and try to rotated each wheel by hand and feel if there are anything that blocks turning. After half a turn, the clutch in the diff. will close, so the other side need to turn the opposite direction and you will find it harder to rotate the wheel. If it blocks complete... replace the clutch. Make sure that you fill the diff with the right amount oil and a special additive called "friction modifier". Don't forget this modifier, because your new clutch will be burned in minutes.

Trunk lock repair for 2002 Volkswagen Jetta

you must remove the internal felt covering that is on the inside of the trunk. This does take some force, but don't be afraid to pull hard, you will most likely not break any of the attachments on the felt cover. On the right hand side of the truck there is a handle right next to the license plate, it will take some finagling to get this to disconnect. Again, brute force dexterity and a flashlight are your best bet.

Chevy transmission

Check the fluid level in the transmission. run the fault codes to check for torque converter clutch and TCM operation. Check that the park brake is actually coming free on being released and not locking up on the rear wheels.

Hi I own an audi a4 2004 Quattro, and i been having problems after i changed my break pads recently. Everytime i break, when going on low speed, there's a clunking sound coming from both, left and right...

um, clunking brakes when braking after you repaired them? EMERGENCY PROCEDURE REQUIRED Have the car towed to a reputable shop. Your brake pads or calipers or wheel are coming apart. they could fail while driving. This is likely very serious. Hopefully, it is just the anti rattle clips not holding the pads in place but do not chance it. Also, consider a mobile mechanic

Central locking not operating with the key or manually. I never had any problems with central locking of my Audi A4Tdi car but suddenly it stop working. I have checked batery and replaced them but still...

It's probably the vacuum pump for the lock mechanism. It's buried in the passenger rear of the car, accessed from the trunk. Pull out the little "pocket" bin between the right rear wheel well and the taillight, pull up the carpet, and the module is down in there. Swap it out for a new one and you should be fine.

Brake pad replacement

You will need to bleed all four corners, starting at the right rear, then left rear, then right front, then left front. Your bleed procedure always goes from the wheel farthest from the master cylinder, to the closest. By bleeding only the rear brakes, you've gotten air out back there, but not necessarily any air that might have moved farther forward. Bleed your rears again, and then move forward to bleed the fronts, and see if that helps.
