Brakes stuck??
« on: April 18, 2021, 05:09:05 PM »
Hi, can anyone help?  I started my Biz this morning and the brakes appeared to be stuck.  After a while I managed to get the car out of the garage but the same thing is happening again - don't want to try too hard in case I do damage.  Apart from a quick nip out of the garage every few weeks over the winter she has done nothing.  Thanks in anticipatation!

Which brake is sticking? Front or rear?

I can't really tell, sorry.  They are not completely stuck but I have to really rev to get it to move.

Take it for a short spin, then feel each wheel to see which ones are hot.

The front driver side is getting a little hot.  It did free up a little after going up and down the road but still sticking on the downhill, in neutral with the clutch down?? Is it a garage job as I'm no use?

Try jacking that wheel up and see if it spins freely. If you are not mechanically minded you will have to take it to a garage to get it checked, maybe a seized slave cylinder?
