Q: Rear tire not moving.

asked by on

One of the rear tires is locked and is not moving. The other three tires work fine.

If your vehicle is equipped with rear disc brakes, you may have a seized brake caliper. If you have rear drums, a frozen parking brake cable or failed return spring could be the cause. A trained technician will be able to inspect and repair your vehicle. I suggest contacting a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, since our team makes house calls.
