Sounds like your brake pads need to be replaced or there is a build up of dust and it is causing your brakes to squeak. You need to be more specific when you post problems on here it would help us help you. Your information is very vague.

Parking brake not working


I will try to inform you about the rear brakes. Depending on trim level, the higher end vehicles have rear rotors. This means that the Emergency brakes are contained inside the rear rotor housings and are actually drum brakes

You will have to see a pair of these linings to understand what is possible with these units. The E-brake drums will severely pit and rust unless used regularly. The E-brake shoe material often detaches from the metal housing and is in no way as thick as regular service linings.

Frozen cables are another possibility. Or the E-brakes are compromised and there is no brake material left on the shoe.

This particular job is best left to a Brake shop. It is more difficult than changing oil, installing a muffler or starter, and on par with Ball joint repair.

Please comment on my info.

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable. Have this...


you mean parking brake cable? loosen parking brake cables put drums on , and adjust shoes till they lightly drag, now apply brakes a few times and check the adjustment again, if all ok, now adjust park brake cables, you want to adjust so park pedal goes 5-8 clicks till the wheels are "locked up" and the wheels spin free with the park brake off

Need advice on parking brake assembly/replacement on 2003 F-150 4x4 crew cab. I think this is the problem as I have a clicking sound coming from the left rear.


Pull the drum on the rear left and check all the brake components before you replace anything. Identify what is clicking or if the parking brake is the cause by driving until the clicking is heard and then, while pulling and holding the parking release lever, slowly apply the parking brake and listen for a distinct change in the clicking noise. If it remains the same, your problem is elsewhere in the rear left area.

Grinding noise when turning left


brake pads metal to metal, brake rotor hitting rear metal dust shield, wheel bearing or CV joint. any of these can cause a grinding noise, the brake pads would be the loudest.

When the car is cold go to drive off it sounds


As you apply your car brakes, your brake pads/shoes wear against the brake rotors/drums. Rear brakes usually have brake drums. As your brake shoe linings wear (as would be the case for your car), the brake linings from the brake shoes have worn down to metal and they wear into the metal of your brake drums. After you park the car at night, the natural moisture in the air facilitates an oxidation (rusting) process along your brake drums. When you get in your car and take off in the morning, you have a light layer of rust that gets scraped off by your worn brake shoes. This is what is causing that annoying noise you hear in the morning (or after the car has been parked for hours). Simply put, you need a rear brake job. They will also check your front brakes and can let you know how much life you have left up front. If you continue to drive around like this, you'll end up ruining your rear brake drums and this will quickly become more expensive. When you have a rear brake drum job completed, they will likely "turn" your rear brake drums - which means they will put the drums on a mechanical lathe that will scrape any uneven surface into one congruous even surface.

Emergency brake repair


sounds like you need an emergency brake adjustment. Around 35 dollars. I'm sure while it's being adjusted the brtakes will also be inspected. Rear brakes might also be low.

2003 PT Cruiser: Scraping Metal sound from BACK left tire area when braking


My rear brakes were making the same sound for over one year. My rear shoes were hard as a stone or glazed. The pads did not look worn, but they made the medal-on-medal sound when I braked. It was pretty loud.

I replaced the brakes shoes and the problem went away. I replaced the shoes myself in about a hour. They were not hard to figure out.
