  1. Latest from the barn find. Had him driving it around a little and heard heavy knock/clunk from rear axle intermittently. Disassembled rear brakes to find all shoe retainer springs broken and beating the crap out of the wheel cylinders. Ordered some brake hardware kits from carid. We'll see
  2. Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and I am eager to hear any advice you guys are willing to share. I have a JDM 2000 Subaru Legacy B4 w/ automatic transmission and recently been having issues with the parking brake or ebrake rubbing inside the rotor. I have taken the rear brake pads out, still makes noise when I spin the rotor. I have taken the calipers and caliper bracket or support and it still makes noise. I take the whole rotor out and I get no noise. I know it is not the back plate because I ruled that out by barely putting the rotor on the wheel hub (so there is no chance of the rotor scraping on the back plate) and I still get noise. So I know it is the shoes that are rubbing in the rotor. I have messed with the dial at the 6 o'clock position and zeroed it out completely and still get scraping sounds when I put my rotor back on. Any ideas of what it could be? Do I need a new rotor or do I need to mess with the parking cable? I have no clue what to do next. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Never saw that before. The wife was going to let the car roll forward a bit and when she pushed the release button it came out in her hand. Appears, to me, to be unscrewed but I could be mistaken. Now, no "clicky clicky" , so the parking brake doesn't work at all. I haven't figured out how to take the console apart so that I can have a peek at what might be the matter but I suspect PART of the problem is that the rear brakes need some attention. Any ideas?
