THIS HAPPENS IN DIFFERENT WAYS

SOMETIMES. NO PROBLEM

SOMETIMES. WON'T BACK UP. FORWARD ALL DAY LONG!

SOMETIMES. NO FORWARD. BACKWARDS ALL DAY LONG!

SOMETIMES. NO GO FORWARD. NO GO BACKWARD

IT ALL DEPENDS ON HOW IT "BINDS"

PULL YOUR DRUMS OFF AND INSPECT THE WHOLE DEAL!

THIS IS OUR LITTLE SPARE CAR, A 1995 DODGE NEON---BOUGHT IT 8 YEARS AGO FOR $250----30 MPG---A/C----60 SOME-ODD THOUSAND MILES THEN----NAMED IT "LIL RED". PREVIOUS OWNERS WERE. IGNORANT?

I DRIVE 'LIL RED FROM TIME TO TIME TO KEEP HIM UP---OR TO SAVE GAS ON A LONG RIDE (AT NIGHT, SO I'M NOT SEEN IN HIM)---OR WHEN I'M WORKING ON ONE OF THE OTHER ONESOR MY WIFE, WHEN I'M WORKING ON HER'SOR WHEN ONE OF 'EM WON'T FIRE UP. HENCE, THE TERM, "SPARE CAR"

"NOT SEEN IN HIM". GOTTA KEEP UP MY JEEP IMAGE!

SO I'M PUTTING BRAKES ON WIFE'S FORD ESCAPESHE IS GONNA DRIVE 'LIL RED. SHE THINKS!

SEE MY 1ST PICHE LOCKS UPNO FORWARD!----NO REVERSE!

NOTICE THE PLOWING SHE DID IN THE YARD WITH THE RIGHT REARTHEN THE SORTA "BACKING" 3 POINT TURN, THIS IS DENOTED BY THE 6 INCH WIDE BLACK MARKS IN THE DRIVEAS SHE "MADE HIM" DRAG THE WHEEL, THE FRONT ONES SPUN TOO!

. FINALLY SHE FIGGERED OUT, AFTER SCREAMING THE FRONT TIRES A TOTAL OF 40 FEET OR SO. SOMETHING MUST BE WRONG!

SO---SHE COME AND GOT ME

MY THOUGHT WERE "A BAD WHEEL BEARING" OR "SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE BRAKES"

I JACKED HIM UP AND PLAYED WITH THE WHEEL TO SEE IF IT WAS A BEARING ISSUETHEN I DROPPED HIM, BROKE THE LUG NUTS AND JACKED HIM BACK UP, THEN SNATCHED THE WHEEL AND DRUM OFF

. SEE PIC 2

I'VE SEEN THIS MANY TIMES!ON DIFFERENT VEHICLES! EACH WITH IT'S OWN WAY OF MESSING UP, DEPENDENT ON HOW EVER IT WEDGES!

THESE BRAKE SHOES AIN'T REAL OLD MAYBE 2 YEARS, WITH LITTLE DRIVING, LOOK AT HOW MUCH LINING IS STILL THERE!

"NEVER SAY""IT CAN'T BE THIS OR THAT THEY ARE ALMOST NEW"

THE "GLUED ON LINING" CAME OFF. SEE PIC 3

SORRY.I GET CARRIED AWAY!

LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU FIND. THIS IS MAY NOT BE YOUR PROBLEM
