2003 Nissan Almera Repair Question
Wheels blocked in Almera
you can raise the wheel that is locked open the bleeder on the brake and work wheel back and forth until it releases then retighten bleeder should be ok then
What could cause it? Will the problem come back?
this is normal if a car has the park brake engaged for a prolonged period the brake just sticks. may happen if you leave the park brake set for a long time. anything that is not used is subject toseize. best thing to do is not set brake when car is stored or periodically release brake.
this wheel can move a little bit, I can move it but within very limited motion.
After rising the wheel I tried if I can move it, It felt like the car is in the first gear, so I don't think it's the break, it feels like the problem is mechanical. I will try what you suggested tommorow.
PS. i didn't know you can bleed handbrake, thought it was only footbrake
lol good point. most newer cars have rear disc brakes and a shoe inside the rotor however if it is rear drums then it will be operated by a cable.if i am understanding your question . your rear wheel will not turn? and do you have disc brakes on the wheel that will not turn?
Unfortunately it's pouring down today so I cannot look at the car. I think that its not disk brake but drum brake, the wheel will move a tiny bit back and forth when pushed.
ok well if drum brake cracking the bleeder will release it.if it don't then something inside hub has come loose
