My brakes are locking up in the rear of my 2001 cavalier z24. I had new shoes put on because i thought it was the problem... didn't work, i had my master cylinder replaced and it seamed to work for about 2...


are they adjusted up tight? You can check this yourself. Jack up one wheel at a time, take the wheel off, take the drum off, and adjust (#16 in the picture) until the drum barely goes on.

Back wheels are frozen from inactivity, what is the best way to free them?


Rear brakes will stick when the parking brake has been engaged for some time and this usually occurs when the vehicle was parked after driving in the rain. Sometimes you can repeatedly attempt to go forward and backward several times and the shoes will break free. If this doesn't work you will have to jack up the rear of the car and remove the wheel. Then using a hammer tap on the drum while trying to move it back and forth. This usually takes care of the problem however sometimes it is necessary to remove the small rubber adjustment plug and loosten the brakes slightly with a brake adjustment tool or screwdriver.

Rear left tier


Tire* -- I don't know if I would suggest doing this yourself, but try taking the tire off, (this requires you to jack the left rear *tire* off of the ground), and checking to make sure your brake is disengaged, meaning that neither the drums (or pads if it is the sport neon) nor the parking brake is still engaged. If neither are, you have a more serious problem on your hands, but if they are engaged, remove the drums and reassemble. Make sure your springs are in the right spot.

Right rear brake is locking up on my 2000 dodge neon. what do i do?


Check to see if it is drum or disc first. Depending on which one it is, it could be a simple adjuster problem for drum brakes or if it is disc breaks you may have a bad caliper. The only way to find out is to take it apart and look at what the car has for brakes.

Car trunk leaking


The most likely place that it may be coming from is the Rear window seal.
When the rear window is put in - a rubbery tar is used... and after time (especially if parked in the sun) it will shrink, and dry out.
Usually at the top of the window is the culprit.
it will involve removing the rear window CAREFULLY and replacing the seal with a 2 part epoxy.

If you have a sunroof - there is also a drain tube that may have come disconnected.

96 Plymouth Neon rear tire locked up


Parking brake is stuck ( possibly ),engauging parking brake a few times which in most cases will not help ( never know when they stick ) and at the back of the drum backing plate towards the axle will be the cable give it a couple good tuggs to release it and do not use it again or replace the cables ( if that is the case), if it will not release and or is free the you may have contamination in the brake lines to the rear right causing the caliper to be stuck open. The bleed the rear brake line best possible solution after that garage.

99 Jeep GC brake lock.


You say they replaced basicly everything that involes the rear brakes.
Every step they took to find the problem could lead to the solution,BUT did they check the inboard brakes. The brake system on a jeep that has rear rotors have inboard shoes for the parking brake.
You could have a parking brake cable that is frozen (this will cause a drag on the inboard brakes. Do you use the parking brake? Maybe the parking brake shoes are adjusted too tight?

Creeking Noise in Rear when brakes applied


I had a similar problem......there was a rhythmic creaking noise coming from the passendger side rear wheel......I lubricated the contact points where the parking brake mechanism contacts the wheel and the noise is now gone...and has been for several months now.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
