Hi

Is it drum brakes? if so it sounds like the brakes have came away inside, hence the gringing, they have springs to hold them in place, they often brake if a lot of pressure was put on the emergency brake, that or a cable has snapped and stuck them on. Quite confident that will be the issue.

Hope that helps
Regards
Dan

Grinding noise when step on the break.


Hi,

The grinding noise could be indicative that the brake pads have worn off and the metal backing is grinding with the brake disc. This is further supported by the emergency brake light indicator which would illuminate (even when emergency/park brake is not engaged) when the brake fluid is low or the pads are too thin or gone (as in your probable case). Even though the grinding sound is only on the left side, it would be to your advantage to repalce both sides. Additionally, pls have the disc themselves checked as they may need re-surfacing.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Noisy breaks


Grinding noise from brakes is no pad left and the metal is grinding away the disc rotor. I suggest you take it to a brake shop and have them physically check both in and outside pads on both wheels.

Ford taurus 1996 3.0 ABS ligth on


Hello, These warning lights are pretty accurate. Autozone, Advance, and Oreillys give free scans although the engine system and brake system can require different scanners.

Check your brake fluid level first. The ABS system requires sensors which require counting the revolutions of each wheel. Sometimes the sensors may break, but they can be blinded by dust and debris.

If you have a broken brake pad, the warning light can come on. Often the Emergency brake pad, inside the rear Rotor, can fall apart and trigger an ABS warning.

You need to inspect both the front and rear brakes or take your car to a brake shop for evaluation. Sometimes you can get a free estimate, and some shops can charge for inspecting the Emergency brakes because of the work needed to reach them.

1999 F250 4x2 - was stored for 3 months and when I tried to move it - the right rear wheel turns but the left rear wheel won't turn. Took off the brakes and caliper - still won't move. I can move...


Hello, The rear rotor has 2 sets of brakes on it. The other thing is to look for slight movement in the driveshaft when it clunks. Depending on the rearend, some have to have both rear wheels off the ground to turn each side. And of course the trans in Neutral.

With the rear wheel you have an Emergency brake and a drum brake inside the center of the Rotor.
The rear of the brake backing plate has a rubber plug which is covering the Star-wheel adjustment for those drum brakes. You can try to loosen the Star-wheel to disengage the Emergency brake shoes. You can try pulling the brake cables toward the cab, to loosen the cables.

If this does not help, your Emergency brake shoe probably rusted off the brake mount and is jammed inside the drum. The linings fall off the metal like banana skins. I can tell you that if the Emergency brakes are a State safety requirement, you need to consider new rotors because the drum portion is usually trashed with rust.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.

1998 4runner(limited)148k miles.left rear tire locks up,then rolls????parking break is not engaged,


if its rear drum brakes, you probably have a sticking wheel cylinder. or a brake adjuster that's adjusted too tight. If its four wheel disc brakes it's probably the emergency brake cable/ tension mechanism not releasing.

Hi I own an audi a4 2004 Quattro, and i been having problems after i changed my break pads recently. Everytime i break, when going on low speed, there's a clunking sound coming from both, left and right...


um, clunking brakes when braking after you repaired them? EMERGENCY PROCEDURE REQUIRED Have the car towed to a reputable shop. Your brake pads or calipers or wheel are coming apart. they could fail while driving. This is likely very serious. Hopefully, it is just the anti rattle clips not holding the pads in place but do not chance it. Also, consider a mobile mechanic

Emergency brake sticking.....i think. Mazda B4000 pickup


Are you sure it is the emergency brakes?Or is it a caliper stuck,because it is bad,or the caliper brake hose is stopped up?Jack the wheels up,one at a time,and try to see if they will turn by hand.This will tell you if it is front,or rear.If it is the emergency brake,then the cable from the front,to the bake,is most likely the problem,it is rusted ,and frayed,and stuck,you will have to disconnect it at the rear,from the brakes.If this helps,let us know,If it is the calipers,in the front,the wheels will not turn by hand.Brake loose the caliper bleed screw,and if the caliper turns the wheel loose,then the brake hose is bad,if it does not ,then the caliper is bad on that wheel.
