I have a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and drove with the emergency brake on for about 10 miles or so. Now I have a metal scrapping sound in back of car . What damage is done?
Can I drive it around the corner to the car shop? How much will
When it initially happened mechanic said it should be ok to drive so
I drove it a day and that is when the metal scrapping and dragging
noise came on.
You just wore out your rear brake pads (or shoes if drums and not disc brakes). The scraping may damage the rotor so, if they cant be turned ((flattened) then replace them as well. If drums, same goes for the drum as the rotor on discs. The sooner you get it repaired, the less likely that turning the rotor or drum will be necessary.
