The greasy one has a seal leaking between the backing plate and the brakes (axle seal) which in turn will cause your brakes to grab on that wheel when you apply the brakes. Remove the axle and replace the seal. Then thoroughly clean the brake shoes and backing plate until they appear bone-dry like the other side. This should solve your problem. Make sure the rear-end grease level is full when you finish.

SOURCE: 95 sub emerg/parking brake light will not turn off

Only two things should normally activate the light:

Parking Brake engaged switch.

Low Fluid level in master cylinder.

I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.

I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.

Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .

I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.

Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?

SOURCE: rear hatch window will not release

This is a common problem on the blazer. If you can hear the rod actuator working, then the actuator rod to latch rod connector has broken. It's plastic, and a poor GM design.
To get the rear hatch open you will need to manualy release it. It can be done by working as much of the plastic tailgate trim you can get loose, from around the top center of the gate, where the latch is. remove the 2 screws that hold the handle on and remove handle. Then pry as much as you need to access the c type latch, and release it by moving it... it's spring loaded and will only move one way. Haveing someone help you lift the hatch while you unlatch it from inside the vehicle helps. After you get the hatch up and the tailgate folded down, make sure the latch is locked in the open position.
The actuator can be repaired, i've done it several times. GM will try and sell you a new one, which is rather costly compared to the $8.00 piece of plastic you need.
Good luck and i hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy silverado noise when let off brakes after stopping

not the springs in most cases just the bushings they ride in, also check for lack of lubrication of the leafs, they have nylon slide strips between the leafs, but they fall out and then the spring loads up on braking and then unwind and you fell a thunk when it does so, there is a special grease injection tool/tip for a grease gun that is used to get grease into the leaf segments that really helps, use a Teflon based grease to to this, it is blue in color and available at many up scale parts stores like NAPA and Carquest.

SOURCE: Rear disc brakes drag after installing new pads

Just did my rear brakes this weekend, Monday had a very slight drag. Noted that when I installed new pads I had to tap them on. That shouldn't be. When brakes are released, there should be enough play to allow the pads to back off the disc. Tonight, I removed the pads and filed down the ends of the tips that go into the top and bottom channels until I could install and remove them with fingertips, that gives them enough play to grab and release. Drag disappeared; the old girl ran like she should.

95 All wheel drive Blazer It's hard steer , re-end locking. nd locking up and alost seems like the br. What would cause all this?


Start with the rear. Most likely a brake problem. 2 things to look at. First the emergency brake cable. Make sure the cable is kind of loose. If not it is locked/rusted and applying the brake. Gets worse as you drive. Cut them close to the brake or replace them. Next is the rear brake hose/s. To check this, if the brakes are tight, release one of the brake bleeder valves. If it releases the brakes, replace the hose. Hard steering could be the power steering pump or gear box, or bad ball joints. This you'll have to look at the steering linkage. Ball joints, pitman arm, idler arm. Any of these look really rusty at the connection. Could be a problem. Look at the steering shaft also. There is a u joint that rusts up and will cause hard spots when turning. Gear boxs usually get sloppy. Power steering pumps start to whine when going bad.

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.

Feels like the rear brakes are dragging when i let off the gas while driving


with unknown year and model i would think the jimmy has a straight rearend with either drum or disk brakes ....they could be dragging i would check the pad surface and also check the rotor , if they are disk brakes the caliper could be sticking the calipers have a pin they slide on , after many miles-heat-corrosion the pins can develope problems causing the brakes to stick if disks brake are a feature - solution is to take caliper off and grease the pins with high temp grease or you can use antilock thread seal - also could be something going bad in the transmission causing this problem like the torque converter or clutches - also could be the rear end , i would take it to a reputable mechanic to take a look at it

Rear brakes dragging


Normally I would say check the brake hose, but that would only be for one wheel.
If the rear brakes are not releasing normally, either something is keeping pressure applied, or the calipers are not sliding back. If both inner and outer pads are wearing down equally on both wheels, I would look for a pressure problem. If only the outboard pads are wearing, the calipers are sticking in place.

Brake issues on 1996 Chevy Blazer


You should check your vacuum lines make sure they are all connected plus the line you keep disconnecting is collasping onto its self which in turn will make the brakes stick so you must have one of the ends plugged.

Rear end making noise like a muffler is bouncing off the pavement. This happens on and off. It feels like the brakes may be dragging but then it quits.


Sounds like the rear EMERGENCY brakes are binding or your ABS is kicking in.

The E brakes are inside the hub of the rear rotors. You have to separate the rear rotor from the axle hub as the E brakes work like drum brakes. The debris will set off the ABS and bind the rear wheels. Many brake shops and dealers just look at the calipers and pads and do not inspect the E brake.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee limited 135k miles.. 2wd rear... when i start off and when i stop i hear something like a dragging sound coming from the rear... what could cause this?


It could be your brakes. Jack up the car, put on safety stands, block front wheels at front and back of tires, put Jeep in neutral, try to spin rear wheels, listen for any rubbing, dragging noise. It could either be brakes not releasing (feel the center of the wheel after driving, is it hot?), or a brake component loose and floating around inside the drum. 'Check this 1st, let me know what you find, then we can continue if necessary.
