Rear wheel locked

I parked my 2003 cavalier for about 2 weeks then when I went to drive it, the driver's side rear wheel would not turn. All other wheels are working fine.

Sounds like parking brake is stuck. You can try and pull apart yourself or have someone look into it.

2004 cavalier wont move


The rear brakes are in fact engaged.
The parking brake handle may be released, but the rear wheel brakes are on.
Jack up one side and see if you can turn the wheel, then check the other side.

I have a 1998 cavalier. My back wheel on drivers side was locking up so had a wheel cylinder replace and a brake line by just someone, then that didn''t help so I took it to all stars and they did...


its possible that the seals in the wheel cylinder were damaged from the previous problem when it didn`t fix the problem.was the replaced seal a new one or a used one that the someone installed or the seals were defective from the manufacture.also were the brakes shoes cleaned of the brake fluid that was on them from the original cylinder leaking on them as this can cause the brakes to lock up,as well as if the brakes are not adjusted properly can cause this as they will catch and turn with the drum until it can`t rotate any more causing the brakes to lock up.as far as the hardware missing then the person that replaced the wheel cylinder didn`t replace everything that they took off or didn`t know what was suppose to be there as far as parts.

are they adjusted up tight? You can check this yourself. Jack up one wheel at a time, take the wheel off, take the drum off, and adjust (#16 in the picture) until the drum barely goes on.

Whenever I engage the parking brake it doesn't lock up the wheels at all.. there isn't the slightest bit of friction.


Remove the rear driver side wheel and make sure it's connected to the brake drum assembly (slide the drum off and verify the e-brake cable is attached).

Check for any breaks in the cable underneath the car.

They are both drive wheels, but on these type of vehicles it is like a limited slip differential. When you give it gas and it gets in a bind it will lock in the other.

Rear drivers wheel locks up in drive is o.k. in reverse


If no oil on the driver side, you have a locked up parking brake pivot. Follow the park brake cable to the inside plate of the rear wheels. on the outside, where the cable connects, look to see the position of the visible mechanism connected to the cable. It probably will not match the side that is not locked up. This is a very common problem; you need to replace the park brake pivot. Additionally, you are going to need to remove the other side axle shaft and get the leaking oil seal replaced. Replace the brake shoes if they have oil on them.
