Question about 1988 Buick Regal

1 Answer

My right rear brake GRABS when coming to a stop. The brakes seem to work fine at higher speeds. I want to get this car in the shop but I do not want them to tell me it's a $600.00 part or something.

Hate to tell you but if one brake grabbs there is a serious problem that needs to be looked at by a tech.
Possibilities...

No/Worn pad (steel on steel application of brake)

Rotor unevenly worn

Caliper sticking

Opposite side tire caliper leaking (Fluid on rotor/pads)

This is not something to be diagnossed online but with trained eyes. YOUR LIFE IS AT STAKE. If you are worried about price, think of it like this Mechanics are like Doctors. We urge you to get a second opinion. Shop around and find someone you like.

Whats happening when 2001 s10 right rear brake grabs first when brakes applied


check for a leaking wheel cylinder on this side as this can cause sticking and grabbing. it could also be an axle seal leak and differential oil has gotten on the brake shoe and drum. incorrect brake adjustment on this side.

2001 Cavalier passenger rear brake locks up at slow speeds, shakes at higher speeds, mechanics changed drums 3 times, keeps coming back


I think it is time to find an accredited brake specialist . At the best with a hub it may be bad wheel bearings but I consider it a problem with the mechanics and their lack of commitment to fixing your problem

Rear speed sensor fails at higher speeds. ecm cant tell what gear to go to and abs looses rear wheel speed. When you start over it sees speed till it hits the higher speed. Been there done that. :-)

Everytime im driving slow and i brake my brakes grind and i have to press hard to come to a stop. it rarely happens when im going at higher speeds although it has happened. Whats the problem?


normally grinding and a hard pedal mean excessive wear on the brake pads, you wont feel it as much at higher speeds, at low speads its more previlant due to the pressure......check front pads first, the rear ones usually wear a lot slower
