Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy
I have a 2001 Jimmy that has Heavy "brake smell" from the rear left, I pulled the caliper and there is maybe a 1/64th's difference between inner and outer pad thickness. the piston collapses back easily,and the rotor looks like glass. the only thing I noticed, was that the parking brake assembly looks beat up and almost rusted off,and the shoes are extremely uneven. could this be hanging up enough to make an overpowering smell like I had just done a few hot laps at Watkins Glen?
Yes it can and probably is the source of the smell try to rplace the springs in there and make sure its not hanging up any more then it should go away
