Question about 1988 Mazda B2200

1 Answer

Rear r/h drumbrake grabbing

Even when applying the brakes gently this brake locks up! It happens a little less easily when there's a load on the tray.
is it to do with the handbrake adjustment, newer shoes on that side (as i only just bought it). Or is it something more sinister.

Could be cable from handbrake seized/stuck on, or adjustment needs backing off, or wheel cylinder or axle seal leak. Drum will have to come off to verify, which may be hard to get off because it's too tight. If you can spin wheel by hand, you might be o.k. to get drum off.

Rear brakes locking(until abs kicks in) with little front brake application and very light pedal pressure. also have really poor hard/emergency braking response, vehicle doesnt stop as aggresively as it...


It could be a proportioning valve, and there's also the chance that the portion of the master cylinder that operates the front brakes is going bad. Have you had a pressure check done on the front brake system? Also, some vehicles have a variable proportioning valve, so that when the vehicle is loaded, it allows more pressure to the rear brakes. These can sometimes stick in place, causing the fault that you describe. Hope this helps you out.

Rear brakes grabbing on 95 Corsica


Itcould be that the brakes installed on your car were not the Original Manufaturers (OEM) recommended pads and/or shoes on the back and front. Or only two of the brakes were replaced. when installing breaks install the OEM's or original breaks for your Corsica.
If a given set of replacement linings are more aggressive than the original, the brakes may feel grabby or upset front-to-rear brake balance increasing the risk of the front or rear brakes locking up on wet or slick roads especially if the more aggressive linings end up on the back brakes. On the other hand, if the replacement linings are less aggressive than the original linings or have less fade resistance, the vehicle may require increased pedal effort and take longer to stop than before. And if these linings end up on the front brakes, they may increase the risk of rear wheel lockup, too.

Brakes


Sounds like air in the fluid or low fluid level. Check the brake fluid level under the hood and make sure it's adequate. If not, top it off. If it is, have the brakes bled and the fluid topped off again, and you should be OK, as long as nothing was damaged during the recent brake job.

Rear wheel brakes lock up


It could be a couple of things..Either you have a fluid leak and its getting on the brake pads making them grab or it could be the abs system itself.. There is a speed sensor on the rear axle which also controls the abs.. That can be changed easily and isnt too expensive.. Kip
