SOURCE: rear brakes uneven breaking as per mot tester

The Chardes have a diagonal split system, so one of the front discs is plumbed to the diagonally located rear drum.

You may need to check the front brakes too and that they have been bleed properly.

Other common cause of uneven braking are:

seized wheel cylinder;
brake hose obstruction or weakend wall;
weak pull off spring on shoe;
uneven drum roundness;
compensator/proportioning valve dicky.

SOURCE: 96 Cavalier passenger rear brake lock up when wet or cold

Bad PROPORTION VALVE ... the back brakes should only be doing 30% of the stopping with a bad proportion valve it will send more pressure to the back during braking and cause it to lock up. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: passenger side rear brake locked up.

It's probably the emergency brake cable that is stuck. Check that first. When I get a drum brake that is totally frozen up (like been sitting for 40 yrs) I often use 2 or 3 pry bars, WD40 and short handle sledge hammer to pry a little on both sides, liberally keep penetrating oil squirted on the shoes and tap on all sides. Eventually drum will come off, but sometimes it takes like maybe 1/2 hour. Shoes will have to be replaced, but they are probably shot anyway. The drums for the caravans are cheap, so I would not only get them, but the spring kit from the parts house as well.

SOURCE: 1999 dodge durango. replaced rear shoes, drums ,

You need to make sure where the shoes touch the baking plate is lubes, and that the rear brakes are not adjusted too tight. If you use the parking brake make sure the cables are working freely and not sticking. I would make these checks before thinking of a clog in brake lines. The other thing that can cause this is the master cylinder going bad and sticking holding the brakes on.

I have a 99 dodge ram that I haven't driven in a


Yes you can fix it. Jack wheel off ground after loosing lug nuts. Take off wheel. Pull drum if it wont come off hit it around the center with a hammer. If it has never been off there might be little washers on the studs break them off. If drum still won't come off there are holes in the plate behind the drum the shoes can't get past the ridge on the drum so you take two screwdrivers through the hole and lift up on the lever and use the other one to unscrew back off the shoes by moving the wheel up or down Remove drum take a bunch of pictures of the shoes so you can see how to put them on. Remove shoes. It would help to buy some cheap brake wrenches.Spray the brake line with some type of penetrant and remove brake line. Unbolt wheel cylinder and install new one. Replace brake shoes and springs Have drums turned or replaced if bad Install drums and bleed brakes.Start at the passenger rear fill it with brake fluid put cover on and have someone pump the brakes until the pedal is as hard as it will get Hold the pedal down and loosen bleeder screw on back of wheel cylinder brak fluid will squirt out and when it stops him holding his foot on the floor tighten the screw and pump the brakes up hard again bleed it about 8 more times go to the drivers rear and do the same there then the front passenger side and then the front drivers side make sure the brake fluid stays full if it empties out of the master cylinder to the bottom you will have to start over12_9_2011_6_45_35_pm.jpg

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

1994 gmc back left tire break leak


Most likely rellted to the rear wheel cylinder. You need to remove the tire, probably replace the brake shoes if they are wet with fluid, wipe down brake drum with carb or brake cleaner, install new wheel cylinder and put everything else back together. Wheel cylinder is available through most auto parts outlets. Probaby less than $15.

My 2005 dodge neon made a clunk noise and then the passenger rear tire locked up. Up until this point it drove fine. Help!


Your problem would appear to be something amiss in the rear brake on the locked wheel. If a wheel sylinder was leaking the brake shoes would become "sticky" and cause the shoes to "lock on" to the drum. Or if the brake was out of adjustment, the assembly could come apart and pieces of it jamb the wheel. This problem is fairly common with drum brakes. You need to have the rear brakes serviced, & checked for fluid or grease on the braking surfaces. All leaks fixed, backing plates cleaned, the wheel cylinders overhauled, & the brake shoes replaced.

How to remove rear brake shoes


How to Replace Brake Shoes
(DIY Complexity: Moderate / DIY Time: 3.2 hours)

Parts:
1. Brake Shoe Set

Tools:
1. Combination Wrench Set
2. Floor Jack
3. Jack Stand Set
4. Mallet Hammer
5. Brake Spring Tool
6. Flat Head Screwdriver
7. Needle Nose Pliers
8. Tire Iron
9. Brake Resetting Gauge

Supplies:
1. Brake Cleaner

Steps:
Step 1 * Secure your vehicle on a level surface, making sure your car will not roll or lean when jacked up.
o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

Step 2 * Break the lug nuts loose but do not remove. Lift up your vehicle using a floor jack.
o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

Step 3 * Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.

Step 4 * Remove the lug nuts. Remove the wheels.
o Tip: Make sure the parking brake is released before removing the brake drum.

Step 5 * Remove the brake drum. If necessary, back off the star wheel adjuster.
o Tip: Hit the brake drum with a rubber mallet to break it loose from a rusted hub.

Step 6 * Clean the brake assembly using a“wet wipe method”. This method uses a spray bottle with water and detergent. Do not use compressed air to clean the brakes. Inspect the brake shoes for wear or damage.
o Tip: It is a good idea to leave one side assembled to use as a reference while you work on the other side.

Step 7 * Remove the primary and secondary brake shoe return springs from the anchor pin and brake shoes.
o Tip: The primary spring is connected to the front (primary) brake shoe and the secondary spring is connected to the rear (secondary) brake shoe.

Step 8 * Remove the adjuster cable and spring assembly. Remove the star adjusting screw and thread the adjuster all the way in.

Step 9 * Remove the front brake shoe retainer. Remove the front brake shoe and parking brake link.

Step 10 * Remove the parking brake lever from the rear brake shoe. Remove the rear brake shoe retainer and remove the rear brake shoe.
o Tip: Specialty brake tools are available to make brake shoe removal easier; but it is possible to remove the brake components with pliers.
o Tip: While you have the drum brake assembly apart, pry the outer seal away from the wheel cylinder and check for leaking brake fluid. If any brake fluid is leaking, replace or rebuild the wheel cylinder

Step 11 * Apply white lithium grease to the backing plate contact points.

Step 12 * Install the new brake shoes in the reverse order of removal. Be careful to keep the new brake shoes clean.

Step 13 * Inspect the brake drum and resurface or replace if necessary. Install the brake drum and adjust the brake shoes.
o Tip: There is a slot on the back of the backing plate usually blocked with a rubber grommet. To adjust the brakes, insert a screw driver into the slot and turn the star wheel adjuster. Spin the brake drum and stop adjusting when you feel a slight drag.

Step 14 * Install the wheels. Torque lug nuts to manufacturer’s specifications.

Step 15 * Lower vehicle and test drive to verify repairs.

Hope help with this (remember rated and comment this help).

Back brakes lock up


There are several conditions that can cause this to happen. You want to start out by checking the parking brake assembly, particularly the cable for the right rear or passenger side brake. Make certain the cable moves freely when the park brake is applied and released completely when the park brake is disengaged.
Next, remove the rear brake drum and check for any oil, grease or brake fluid contamination of the brake shoes. Any contamination of this type will cause the brake to hang up when applied.
If that checks good, make sure the brake system hardware if working properly and components have not dislodged from there installed position be sure there are no broken return springs or very rusted and weak components.
Generally what happens is a wheel cylinder begins to leak, contaminated the shoes and cause them to become sticky when the shoe contacts the drum or a return spring breaks or comes off for various reasons.
Check it out and let me know.

Rear brakes lock up


Not wanting to be too general but at least trying to help I would suggest looking under the back end, and specifically at the rear backing plates and to the insides of the rear wheels, to see if you notice any fluids dripping. If these are drum brakes, then you could very well have either a wheel cylinder leaking brake fluid, causing the brake shoe linings to swell up, or it could be a leaking axle seal, allowing differential gear lube out, which will also cause the linings to swell, and minor braking will cause that particular side to lock up.
If this vehicle has rear disk brakes, or was just recently changed from rear drum brakes to rear disk brakes, it is possible that the proportioning valve in the brake line was not changed to match with the disk setup.
Drum brakes operate at approximately ten pounds per square inch pressure (10 PSI) whereas disk units operate at a lower pressure of about 2 PSI.
Just some things to look at. Some brake fluids have no smell, others are very distinctive in odor, and differential gear lube has a very distinct odor...not hard to miss once you've smelled it.
