Q: Brake not working

asked by on February 04, 2016

The rear passenger's side brake doesn't work

The description given is rather vague. I’m not sure to what extent or in what way your right rear brake doesn’t work. However, a brake problem that is exclusive to one wheel is usually caused by a faulty brake caliper. Calipers often seize up, locking the brake and wheel. I suggest having a professional mechanic inspect your rear brakes and come up with a diagnosis for a repair.
