Rear wheel locks up in reverse

Asked by Jul 02, 2017 at 08:15 PM about the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

First take a look at your brake pads and see if they are wearing abnormally. If they wear wedge shaped, that will jam things up while backing up. Then, while the wheel is off, pull the caliper and rotor, and take a look and see if the parking brake is coming apart and jamming things up or misadjusted. I hope this helps.
