Have just finished stripping the offending right rear side and reassembling.
The problem appears to have been the cam on the end of the handbrake lever.
Took it out, it is sprung and can be pushed back against the little stop bar. Reassembled with the cam right back and the tongue on the end at right angles through the relevant slot in the backing plate and lining. Slacken off the adjuster and refit the drum, removing and replacing after taking the adjustment up until you have a firm but not tight fit. Replace wheel and road test as I have just done for about 20 km forward and backwards. Seems to be perfect now. Can only wait and see if the problem recurs. Was only the one wheel, other one still as good as new. Hope this helps someone else.

Only the front brakes on my 2008 town and country appear to be applying


Have the proportioning valve checked on it. This valve reduces braking power to the rear brakes under hard braking to keep the rear brakes from locking up due to less weight on rear wheels. When malfunctioning it can cause the rears to not apply at all.

Right rear brakes keeps messing up on a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus, we keep buying new right rear brakes about every two months or less. Can you help us out?


You have to make sure the brake system is operating properly.Change both rear brakes it sounds like the left rear brake side is not working making the right side wear out so quick.After changing the back brakes bleed them making sure you have no air in your brake lines.start bleeding them from the left rear to the right rear to the left front to right front to master cylinder.

Is there a difference between right and left rear springs


There is no difference between coils except for front and back, and the brakes lock up if you press them hard since it's an old car and does not have anti lock brakes

How can i unlock abs on my 2001 dodge grande caravan which has locked my right rear wheel


Drum or disk rear brakes? Have you checked the brakes to see if they a o.k.? Is the ebrake stuck and holding the brake on? The abs will not keep a wheel from turning. Since ABS stands for ANTI-LOCK Brake System it would not make sense for the system to "lock" up the brakes since it is designed to keep the brakes from locking up. Your problem is mechanical or hydraulic. A quick inspection of the brake components should reveal the problem.

Back brakes lock up


Have you jacked up the right rear tire to spin it? Have you used the emergency brake? The e-brake cable could be stuck on. It could be a bad wheel cylinder. or if it has rear disc brakes it could be a faulty caliper or a collapsed brake hose.

Brakes


if you have rear drum brakes, check the rear brakes to see if you have any fluid leaks as in brake fluid from the wheel cylinder. it sounds like that is what is happening. when rear drum brakes get oil soaked they tend to lock up when the brakes are applied
