I think you will find that the brake shoes are locking the wheel due to the wheel cylinders not being able to return fully. On trucks that use hydrolic brakes you can find a small wheel type adjuster in the backing plate. Usually 1 per cylinder and theres often 2 cylinders per wheel. Try to de-adjust the wheel cylinders to free the wheel. This wil only allow the wheel to turn. After a brake aplication u might find the wheel is back to the original situation. So i suggest removing the brake drum and investigating further.

Hydraulic brakes stoped working after blown steering seel? Need help


If there's no pressure on your brake pedal it's due to a failure somewhere in the braking system. I can't see any connection between a steering problem and a braking problem.

Most cars have a split-circuit braking system. That is, the front left wheel is on the same line as the rear right wheel. The front right wheel is on the same line as the rear left wheel.

This is just a safety feature: If one brake line loses pressure, the other line still works and you retain 50% of your braking power.

check the level of your brake fluid. If the level has dropped it indicates a leak somewhere. Though be aware that it is possible NOT to lose brake fluid whilst having soft brakes..

Brake pressure is lost due to either a faulty brake master cylinder or a leak at one of the wheels.

Remove each tyre in turn and inspect the piston on the brake calliper. If there's slight wetness caused by brake fluid that indicates a seal (around the brake piston) has failed and is drawing in air.

There's no need to replace a calliper - overhaul kits are available.

The link below shows generic images of brake calliper pistons/seals:

Jaguar S Type 2002 70000 miles. Driving up multi storey car parks on full lock on wet surface there is a noise from the wheel that seems like one wheel moving to the side. Similar to having a flat tyre and...


Could it prehaps have been the traction control kicking in as it can be sensitive in the s-type. Maybe the fact your tyres where wet and you may have lost traction for a breif second the system activatied. It may also be worth having the 3 large bolts that hold the steering rack to the subframe check tightened to make sure that they have not come loose

Can any one tell me if a rear wheel assembly for a nissan senta. is universal ? or is there a specific right or left.


hi from uk all wheels on your vehicle should be fully interchangable to any axle/side however on a number of cars now the spare wheel in uk are a what is called SPACE SAVER this is usually a steel rim painted red with a smaller tyre that is for emergency/get you home only till origional wheel /tyre is fixed ?? only other problem you could have with wheels/tyrs when interchanging is many high spec wheels are what is called ROTATIONAL TREADS the tread pattern on each tyre must be fitted correctly in rotation of wheel for displacement of rain on road for one instance ? so if you change wheel from right front to left ? the rotation pattern on tyre faces wrong way hope you understand ?

Car pulling to one side


I would say that the left hand brake caliper is not releasing and either needs replacing or have a repair kit fitted.

Or the constant velocity joint on the left is seizing up due to either road dirt ingress or a cracked bearing

Brakes
When you apply the brakes the piston inside the caliper is supposed to move out to apply pressure to the brake pads.
When you remove the braking effort it is supposed to relax allowing the pad to release
Yours is not doing that so it will cause the car to pull to one side.

1997 Toyota Camry LE. During wet weather, water


Most of the problems come when its raining and if its not being driven and water still comes in then its the bonnet rubber and if when its being driven then its due to the rear wheel throughing up water under wheelarch and somewhere theres a crack in the weld or somewhere and it will find its way in..
So if not using it clean it out and when rain stops look inside no rain no leak Have a goodday
