Hi this sounds like it require lubrication at the joints rather than trying to get it equal if as you say everything is ok just not pulling up evenly, you need to remove the rear rotors and copper slip/copper ease the areas that touch the back plate, copper slip/ease the joints where the cable connects to the leaver for the shoes, put some grease on the joints where the cable splits to either side, and the cable itself and that should do it...hope this helps

Rear wheel clunking noise and squeeling noise sometimes


This sounds like it could either be brakes or a wheel bearing going bad. You can check this by removing the rear wheel and inspecting the brakes making sure the caliper is mounted on tightly and brake rotor isn't showing uneven wear. Also be sure to check the brake pads to make sure that they are not worn down to the squealer tabs. Most new pads are roughly 3/8" -1/2"thick. and will start squealing if at about 1/8"-1/16" thick. If everything checks out fine then check the wheel bearing by simply jacking the wheel up off the ground and grabbing. Now try to move it side to side or up and down, it should have no play what so ever. And spin the wheel to listen for screeching or squealing, it should rotate smoothly with no abnormal noises.

Failed parking brake


a frozen shoe actuator is the most common problem; a poorly adjusted system is the second most common cause. you say that you replaced pads; did you remove the disks? your parking brake is inside the disks and it uses shoes, not pads.

Front disc brake squeak when turning left


your last sentence is probably the reason for your squeeking brake....both the front and back of the pad need to be fitting snugly, not loose and for sure not at an angle. hope this helps

My dash lights come on when my brakes are pushed in my 93 nissan pick-up


If you mean the brake warning light on the dash is coming on, it is telling you that you have a problem with your hydraulic system, There is a switch that senses an imbalance between the front and the rear brakes. First check your brake fluid, if it's low than you have a external leak. If it's not low, the master cylinder has failed internally.Lokk for brake fluid leaks behind each wheel and at the back of the master cylinder. If you can find a leak or it's not low on fluid you had a bad master cylinder.

Changed the rear brake pads on nissan x trail 2002 model. Now the brakes klick as there applied?


You can get this problem if you use cheap brake pads that do not come with an anti rattle clip set. I would never recommend using metallic pads on any vehicle, although there are some good ones out there. I would recommend using only a full ceramic pad each and everytime you replace your pads.
