Friend,
Since you know so much, you would also know how to bleed the brakes. The brakes need to be bled and the pressure on the brake shoes/pads released so that they get loosened and removed form the drums. All four wheels have to be bled.

yes baby it to him and replace both calipers and rotors as they will work better with your new brake pads. Do Not Do a half a job when it comes to brakes. its your family you are dealing with. calipers are cheap rotors are cheaper and pads are also cheap. its 3 hours labour to do a complete front brake job and rear brakes take 2 hours. with new shoes turn drums replace wheel cylinders and new rear brake hardware price in Canadian for front brakes under 400 price for rear under 250 American parts prices slightly different but labour times the same

My svt's rear brakes never fully releases? You can


Try removing the drums and checking the mechanism. It could be that dust from the brakelinings is preventing free operation of the brake pads.
Clean out the drums and if the brake pads appear to be stuck a light thump with a hide mallet should release the sticking.

Our car has been sitting parked for the past 8 months, today we tried to move it and the back brakes are locked, and the back wheels will not move? What could be the cause of this?


The bracke drum / Hand brake cable is stuck . Try to hammer the rear wheel centre and if the brake drum is stuck it wiill be released .
Also the cable of hand brake is stuck . try puling the hand lever of the hand brake up and down many times this may free it .

Left rear wheel will not turn at all and is locked on. The right rear is just dragging. The handbrake appears to have released normally. Car is a one year old small Chrysler - it belonds to a friend and is...


Does the car have drums or disc brakes on the rear? If it has drums then the handbrake lever may not be releasing on the rear shoe itself or a spring or brake lining could have let go and got jammed. If the handbrake lever is the problem then removing the wheel and striking the drum with a large ball peen hammer should release it (may be barbaric but it works), this will not solve the problem the brakes would have to be removed and serviced or replaced depending on the problem. If the vehicle however has disc brakes on the rear then the caliper on that wheel may have become stuck or seized, normally they are replaced nowadays if this occurs since rebuild kits are not readily available. Still with disc brakes could also have stuck pad in its guide on the bracket, although much less likely, also tends to be less costly since you only have to remove and clean it up (rust, etc). If the handbrake is inside the rotor (internal drum), then you could have a problem with the shoes or lever releasing inside the rotor (depending on the setup on the rear). As well if it were not brakes in very, very rare occasions a wheel bearing could lock up, not very likely though. hope this will help you good luck

I think you are saying the rear brakes are locked up because of the parking brake is sticking? The few things to check is if the cables are pinched or rusted. The park brake release could be bad, but I havn't ever came across that. Possible rear brakes were so worn they have bonded to the drum. Try and "rock" the car. Release the park brake and 1st to reverse and see it it will get moving. Then check out all of the possible problems above. If the rears are locked up right now you will never get the drums off.

Creaky sound upon tapping brake, and brown right rear tire


Looks like you need to change the brake pads sooner than later, the brown residue is the brake dust and the burning smell might be the dust hitting the the tyre.

Rear drum removal


You will literally have to take a rubber mallet and beat on them all the way around until they work themselves loose enough to remove them by hand. You won't damage them as long as you use a rubber mallet.

Emergency brake pad stuck 93 Camry


Its A Rear Tire Id Guess Its Gotta Be A Problem With The Brakes And Not The Brake Pad. I Would Recommend Taking It To A Mechanic If Thats Not An Option Get The Book. Jack Up The Vehicle And Remove The Suspicious Tire. Mark One Spot On The Drum And One Spot On The Center Hub. Then Check The Inside Of The Drum Once Removed And Inspect it Also Check Your Brake Pads. Not Many People Know That Drum Pads Release Outward Instead Of Inward Like Disc Brakes. Hopefully This Will Help You

1998 infiniti QX4 break squeeling


The squeal is usually the tell tales that make a noise when the front or rear disk pads are worn to where they need replacing. However, with drum brakes, that is an indication of totally worn out shoes, or a broken part. STOP driving the car, go to a mechanic (or friend) and have them checked.
