I would go back the the wheel not turning. If the E brake cable is on the back side and out side the brake, use a hammer and knock back the arm, the cable could be seized up and not releasing. If the cable goes inside the brake, then either replace the cable or cut it close to the brake. I recommend you replace both sides.
Hi. I have just changed my rear discs and pads on my ford racing puma. I wound the piston back as far as it will go, once the pads are in and bolted up the wheel will not turn even though the handbrake is not on.. Have I missed something or do I need to slacken the handbrake cable off more
I frequently use and highly recommend registering for free at www.autozone.com Your registration gives you access to a variety of repair and shop manuals, most giving you detailed repair instructions and diagrams.
Your piece on a similar problem with a speed sensor on the gearbox of a Ford Focus solved te problem. The AA did not have a replacement sensor but advised, you could check your speed using a sat nav.
The dealer who supplied the car, Thrapston Ford, have agreed to supply & fit the part free of charge.
Quite often if you can get a look down beside handbrake,which may require removal of boot, you may see a switch that is activated by pulling handle, as well as an adjustment that would allow you to tighten slack in cable, up a bit to eliminate slack that is most likely causing the light to flicker. If not there, look under car where it attaches to the 2 rear cables for an adjustment, and tighten it up there. Not too tight, as you don't want brakes dragging, just snug. Remember, safety stands while your under there if it has to be done from under.
There could be a loose connection where it reads when the hand break is up. So it may be loose you would have to take apart your center consol where your handbreak is located and tighten up the sensor to see if that is infact the problem. But it really couldn't be anything else from my point of view
none really but do make sure the lip on the outside of the interior of the same is cleaned up with a small radial grinder so it has a slight outward bevel and make sure the shoes are adjusted up so the drum just slides over and slight scuffing noise can be heard when spun ,then tap drum with hammer and if noise stops then re adjust the shoes out a bit more .HANDBRAKE CABLES ARE IMPOSSIBLE TO STRETCH , so only change if the cable is seized
