    93 Mazda MX6 The parking brake does not engage. The cables are OK but

    even when I manually throw the levers on the calipers all of their travel limits

    the wheel (airborn) spins freely. I have not pulled the calipers yet and can only see the outer pads which appear to be about 3/8 in thick as yet.

    With no brake applied I can hear a slight rub of pads on rotors so have not

    turned the adjusting gear as yet. Any sugestions

An adjustment can be made at the rear brake calipers or drum.. inspect brake shoes if worn out. a good gas station with an competent mechanic can help you with that

When I step on the brake I don't hear no clicking noise what is wrong?


What kind of clicking noise do you expect to hear? Applying the main brakes is usually a silent activity.
If you are referring to the emergency brake, it is the clicking of the ratchet when applying the emergency brake. The clicking is the sound of spring loaded metal teeth bouncing along a cog wheel. The action is similar to the teeth on a hand winch that does not allow backward turning. If when applying the emergency brake the sound is not heard then the spring may be broken or dislodged.
Does the brake engage? Does the handle stay pulled until the brake is released? If not then the locking of the brake is not happening.

Parking brake functions but will not stop car?


The brake shoes or pads seem to be out of adjustment, the components inside the brake drum could also be corroded frozen . Unless you are qualified to do brake work, I don't recommend you do it yourself . Its called an emergency brake for just that reason ,you and your familys life could depend on it working correctly what ever the cost go to a professional .

How do I release a stuck on emergency park brake?


hello,
if your e-brake is stuck then you could look at the unit on the side and there should be a small lever that you can pull to release the brakes if the cable is not working, the cables themselves could be frozen? or something mechanical inside the drums or calipers in the rear that could be stuck and not moving. there is a possibility that the master cylinder is at fault, but rare. you can open the rear wheel bleed valves and see if the vehicle can move? if so, then check the rubber lines to the wheels? to be bad

Feels like I'm being held back


Sounds like your brakes are sticking. Possibly the emergency brake is not disengaging entirely? Stop the car and put in park. Apply emergency brake as hard/far as possible. Then release and put in drive and try to go. Most emergency brakes are self adjusting. If the problem still persists, have it taken to your mechanic.

I replaced my rear brakes. Does the emergency brake automatically adjust itself?


Yes.....and no. Emergency brake should have been checked during brake pad replacement.
Most do adjust to new pads...ie: return to factory adjustment setting due to new pads .

The E brake lever should be applying braking to the wheels after three clicks are heard during application of the Emergency brake.

Lift rear of car and apply emergency brake to the third click. Now both rear wheels should drag equally but not be locked up.
.
If not, adjustment required.

However, late model cars need a scanner to pull back the pistons and install pads.

2000 vw jetta with brake light on when moving down the road a chime comes on


When the vehicle is not moving set the emergency brake and release the brake all the way to its off position. It sounds like your emergency brake is on or the emergency brake switch is not disengaging.

My fusion was fine last night just tried to go out and when i go to move it feels as if there is something under the wheels stopping it have look and nothing there also it made a clincking noise


Did you have the emergency brake set? Is the temperature below freezing? I have had water freeze in the emergency brake cable housing and it kept the brakes applied.
