If I am correct that truck has rear drum breaks? If this is the case the adjusters sound as if they were not brought in enough for proper clearance between the drums and shoes. If this is it I'd remove the rear drums and adjust for proper clearance (there should be no drag with drum breaks. If they are disk breaks I'd say the calipers are stuck and keeping tight on the discs; if this is the case I'd replace that calipers with new or rebuilt units.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

I was told that my parking brake on my 2002 Kia Sedona is not engaging properly, though there is good tension on the line. I've replaced the rear drum brake pads, and adjusted the parking brake cable that...


Cable may be seizing in the sheath due to corrosion. Remove the drums to see if shoes move outward when someone pulls the lever. If not, remove the cables from the shoes, raise the ends, and shoot oil into the sheath. Break the cable loose inside the sheath and continue oiling until the cable moves freely in the sheath.

The parking break does not completely dis enguage. the handle moves freely for about an inch which then i can feel the break line and im assuming thats where its stuck. can you help me?


That is a sign that you need new rear brake pads and/or rotors. Or your caliper holders/sliders are not moving out and back in correctly. Don't adjust the cable on the lever, when you get new rear pads and clean/re-lube your moving brake parts back there the cable will be tight again.

Replaced rear rotors and pads on 1999 4wd silverado, they now get burning hot , greased pins ok, whats wrong ??


make sure the pads move very freely inside the caliper bridge rust can build up and bind pads causing excess friction. never hurts to double check the parts purchased are the correct application.

To cofirm a stuck e-brake jack up that wheel and apply e-brake then release and see if the wheel will turn freely if not the e-brake cable must be replaced, the brake shoes or pads must be checked for wear also for a temperary remedy spray liqiud wrench all along the length especially at the upper end and work the cable with your hand back and forth to free up the cable, once freed up avoid applying the e-brake until the replacement is complete.

The left rear rotor on a 1991 nissan keeps breaking , i changed, pads, rotor, and calipar and when i drove the car it broke the peice over the lug nuts off of the peice that goes through the brake pads


sounds like to me a bearing is out are the rear axle is bent. jack up car on side that keeps breaking and roll the tire see if it moves side to side but it does have something to do with the axle.

Rear disc brakes drag after installing new pads


Just did my rear brakes this weekend, Monday had a very slight drag. Noted that when I installed new pads I had to tap them on. That shouldn't be. When brakes are released, there should be enough play to allow the pads to back off the disc. Tonight, I removed the pads and filed down the ends of the tips that go into the top and bottom channels until I could install and remove them with fingertips, that gives them enough play to grab and release. Drag disappeared; the old girl ran like she should.
