Parking brake assembly inside the rear rotor/drum is worn out and scraping the drum. The brake cable could be sticking on, and if so will need replaced.

There are things you need to check:
1. The brake pads or shoes on the back wheels.
2. The cable that connects from the pedal to the cable on the back wheels,
3. The cable on the back wheels.
The cables are adjustable.

I hear a loud scaping noise from my 2005 Toyota camry when i press on the brakes.


Sounds like the brake pads may be worn out in the front. Make sure that there is not metal to metal contact that may score the rotors. Also, check the shoes and drums for the rear brakes if so equipped.

If you need instructions on how to disassemble, let me know.

Grinding niose towards rear of suburban when i coast. Does it every time coasting down hill or slowing to stop or turn. Echos through drive shaft at rear end.


GM rears are known for this noise it is usually caused by a pinion bearing that is coming apart or what they call bernelling ( I am not sure I spelled that correctly) it is little pits in the cones in the bearing it comes from lack of lubrication or the pinion seal leaking,you could pull the rear cover and drain the fluid into a dark pan and look for debris or alot of silver color.

On your parking brake assembly is a single wire switch. You can unplug it, but you will have to remember not to drive with it set. To replace the switch the whole assembly will have to come out. The switch is about $20 and labor should run about two hours. Good Luck

2006 chevy silverado 1500 front brakes are squeeking


on disc brakes there is a metal marker on them that when the pads get low on material it will make a squeeling noise to let you know its time to change the pads.. so I would say you are in need of front pads also even though they look good you are getting low.. this marker is designed to let you know its time before you get to metal to metal .. jerry

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.

Rear Brakes appear to be warped.


more then likely, the front rotors are warped up from stopping too fast...pull wheels calipers and rotors off. take to local garage to have them turned smooth.. they cost about 10 or 15 each to have that done... also change the brake pads.

Parking brake pedal goes to floor


Hello;
The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.
Thanks;
