Replace the caliper on that side, or if you can, the piston in the caliper - that's what's sticking.

Until you get it fixed, the only workaround is to use the parking brake to stop the vehicle, instead of the main hydraulic braking system.

My brakes wont hold I recently replaced pads and shoes but the problem still persists

When people say their brakes won't hold they are usually referring to the parking brake rather than the footbrake performance.

Low parking brake effort can be a nightmare to overcome and can take a deal of experience to recognise the possible causes.

Poor footbrake performance usually is associated with inferior friction material and/or contaminated or worn brake drums and discs though could be a failing servo unit or poor vacuum supply.

Parking brake stuck

footbrake kind or handbrake lever.. spray wd40 on the cable where it enters the sheath and work it on and off.. also check the cables where they are located near the back wheels and spray these also.. they rust up and stick ..lever style e-brake has a button on the lever that must be pushed in to release..if jerked up to hard by a strong arm it will be tough to release it.. calls for 2 hands to pull up and push the button at the same time..foot brake requires pushing down while pulling the hand release and see if it works.. repost please..

Warning light does not go out when footbrake is released via the pull release handle

The problem is easily solved my lubricating the foot brake cable with some silicon grease. Th ebest place to buy it is from a pro bicycle shop, because pro bikes use lots of cables and they need to work perfectly when shifting their many 20+ gears.

I get a clicking from the gesr shift area when I apply or release the foot brake

This is normal when gear shift is in park. When footbrake is depressed a mechanism in the J gate releases the gear shift so that it can be shifted out of the park position. The clicking noise is is the sound of the mechanism.

hi from uk for your info the rear brakes assy's are auto adjust whether they are disc or drum brakes so h pe the garage are not adjusting the h/brake cable each time ? if so then the auto adjust will not operate due to cable holding the auto adjust mechanism and so the as brakes wear the auto adjust that takes up wear does'nt ? but you are pulling h/brake hard on to apply park ? and actually streching cable you should release cable then pump footbrake and provided?? theauto adjust and lever are not seized brakes will adjust and also will/should improve footbrake ie less travel and more positive then you can reset cable as per h/book hope this helps and is easy diy especially if you follow haynes or other manual ?
