I have a Mazda MPV 2004 with approximately 730000Km.
It seems that my back parking brake is dragging. I have rear disc brakes which includes a drum for the parking brake. I know that the parking brake is draging because I removed the calipers and pads and turned the wheel and it is still making the noise. I suppose that there is some way of adjusting the parking brake, but I don't see any way of doing this except for taking off the rotor. The problem with this is that I don't know how to take it off. Do I just bang it off, or is there something else I have to do? There is a grease cap, but I am not sure how to take this off.
The other thing that seems puzzling is that when I apply the brakes when driving, it makes more noise. This does not make any sense if it is the parking brake. In any case I'll tackle the problem a step at a time. First the parking brake. I'll fix that and see if the problem goes away entirely.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
