How can I tell if my emergency brake is damaged on my rear caliper on a 2005 Chevy Malibu maxx


Remove the wheel and have someone depress the e-brake while observing cable operation. The cable should pull the brake arm on the caliper and release the arm when the e-brake pedal is released.

Rear passenger brake is hanging up any ideas


Do you have drum or disc rear brakes? If drum, the wheel cylinder probably needs to be replaced. If the wheel has overheated at any time, you should also replace the hardware (springs, etc) as they can lose their ability to retract the shoes if overheated. If disc brakes on rear, then the caliper is probably to blame. Has the brake fluid ever been changed? Fluid absorbs moisture (never use brake fluid from an open or not tightly sealed container). After rebuilding or replacing the caliper or wheel cyl. bleed all 4 wheels to flush out old fluid, otherwise you may have other wheels w/ brakes dragging/not releasing. Let me know if this doesn't fix it, I'll help further.

2006 malibu maxx - the rear brake caliper will not depress.


If you are replacing the rear pads and are trying to retract the caliper pistons here is what you need to do.
Use a piston installation tool in order to twist the brake caliper piston into the brake caliper bore.
If you do not have the tool you can retract the piston by using a needle nose plier.
Exert downward force and rotate clockwise until the piston bottoms out.
Before installing be sure the two "U" shaped slots are at 6:00 and 12:00 Oclock.

Rear brakes on 2005 ford 500


On my Chevy, I use a prybar between the rotor and the caliper to retract it a little, once it's off, I use a 6-in. C-clamp to fully retract it.
Make sure the reservoir doesn't overflow!

How to compress Rear Disc Brake Cylinder


if there is a cable and spring attached to the caliper then it is the twist back kind. you need a special tool to rotate the piston back and do not force it. it will ruin the caliper. and also some cars one will turn clockwise and one will go counter clock wise i dont think this is the case with your car but if it doesnt want to turn back try changing the direction.
