Does anyone know how to un-freeze the brakes. Car running...in gear...and wont move. And yes...the emergency brake is off.
Can anybody help???
Jack up and see if it’s the front or rear. Old brake fluid can collect moisture and cause corrosion.
Rear wheel cylinder leaking onto the shoes will glue them to the drum.
Take the wheels off, and use a heavy plastic hammer to shock the drums.
Hey Chuck...you were right...a few whacks with the hammer freed up the brakes.
Im thinking the humid summer months some how made the brakes stick just enough
to be a problem. Serves me right for not taking out my car more. Thanks again all!!
