Change your brake hoses. It is possible that the hose may be collapsed inside and does not allow fluid back to master cylinder keeping the rear brakes applied.

99 Ford Contour SE is making a grinding noise from the rear passengerside whealwell, as well as a lack of pressure at the brake peddal. Any Ideas would be appreciated.


Check the brake hose going the caliper or drum on that wheel, its probably leaking. That would explain the lack of pressure. Dont know whether your car has disc or drum brakes on the rear, could be either.
But if the hose is leaking, fluid will be all over the inner part of the wheel. And check your brake fluid to see if its low.

Or one of the springs in the drum could have broken or popped off.
That would explain the grinding noise. A broken spring is more likely since
you hear the grinding noise because the brake shoe would always be touching the drum
because the spring keeps the shoe from contacting the drum when the brakes are not being
pushed.

95 Lumina rear brakes/low pedal.


IT IS POSSIBLE THE WHEEL CYLINDERS are wrong and need too much fluid to push brakes out. or rear shoes are not adjusted correct. this could be from drums too big(unlikely since new) shoes are not fitting to drum correct.You can take shoes off and set them in drum the whole shoe should contact drum sometimes just the ends contact. If this is case sand off ends of lining to make it fit .
If wheel cylinders are bad they would leak. might try a different brand of cylinders.

Safty restraint system in rear of my car. (passengerside)


The auto-lock mechanism is probably dirty. You will need to remove the spooling mechanism, and clean it out and check for operation. Many use an inertia lock, that must be free to swing or the spool will remain latched.
