Wheel locked on car


Most likely you have a problem caused by rust or some other corrosion that made it lock. You will need to try prying on the wheel to unlock it or remove the tire and then try removing the brake drum or checking the break pads and disc. This depends on which you have, brake drum or disc. Sometimes it takes a little pounding on the brake drum to free it, just so you don't hit too hard so it dents or bends.

I have a grinding noise in my front left and the vehicle pulls really bad to the left


you most likely need to have your front brakes replace post haste. the grinding noise,does it get worse when you apply the brakes? the grinding noise will be a bad brake rotor and will also make you car pull hard one way or other depending on which brake is worse. recommend highly that you have those brakes looked at. the more you drive it, the worse the problem will be.thank you for choosing fixya.com and please rate my solution thank you!

My car makes a scrapping and or grinding noise when driving and braking like i'm dragging something it is a Ford Focus SE 2004


It a small piece of metal that rubs against your rotor, to let you know the brake pads need to be changed. It's an indicator before they get worn really bad. If this is not repaired you will spend more money to replace the rotors from the metal grinding into the metal rotor.

2004 ford focus brake lights on when side lights on


This problem sounds like a short in the lighting system. Since the side lights get brighter when you press the brake pedal, you have power crossing from the brake wire to the marker wire. Try removing the left rear brake bulb and se if the problem continues. If it does, reinstall the left bulb and try removing the brake bulb on the other side and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem persists examin the wires closely for broken insulation.

When the manual emergency brake was released, the car won't go into 1st or reverse...it was sitting for 6 days with the brake on.


The brake is probably stuck in place. From sitting for so long, the brake probably got stuck and won't disengage.

Focus front brake grinding noise on frist braking in the mornring


Look for a metal tab at the brake. It's only supposed to touch (and make noise) when the brakes are worn down. Sounds like it's bent in too far.

Rear brakes on muy 2000


Generaly speaking, if you're getting about 2 years out of a set of pads, then you're doing ok. The grinding you're hearing is the pad material wearing off to the metal backing of the pad due to normal wear. Also make sure you do a caliper service and clean and lube the slide pins, as well as the saddle where the pads sit in the bracket.
