Question about 1998 Holden VT Commodore
Nothing cause I dontknow much bout cars
If there is like a rubbing /scraping noise from the rear of the vehicle it could be worn out brake pads.
Or the other thing is if the handbrake has been adjusted correctly you will get a rubbing/sraping noise coming from the rear more noticeable at slower driving.
As a lot of people think if they just tighten up the adjuster at the handbrake it will be fine but this is not the case.To fix the problem you need to take it to your mechanic and have it adjusted correctly and all parts cleaned.The 10mm nut at the handbrake needs to be backed off all the way,wheels need to be removed and disc rotors,once disc are off check the handbrake shoes and give a good clean/sand with rough paper and also clean and sand the inside of disc rotors that make contact with handbrake shoes.then slide the disc back on gentle you should find they are quiet loose.remove disc aagain and slow adjust handbrake shoes until you can feel it getting hard for disc to slide on adjust until you can feel some drag as you rotate disc do the same on both sides of vehicle and then refit all parts you have removed put wheels on and lower vehicle .once the vehicle is down and level go inside the car to the handbrake lever and adjust the 10mm nut under cover until you get 7 clicks.
when the vehicle is running and the handbrake is on 7 clicks and you put the vehicle in drive the handbrake should hold the vehicle.
Road test and listen for rubbing noise it should be fine now.
