    Default City Rear Brake Issue

    friends today i experienced the worst moment of my life, when i was driving on highway at normal speed (80km/h) and suddenly 3 cows ran across the road right in front of me. i pushed the brake paddle hardly but car spinned two times clockwise.it went totally out of my control...seems like the front disks didn't worked at all.

    ( 2 weeks ago front brakes were only checked(means working perfectly) , rear drums tooled, leathers replaced and oil changed from Honda Breeze )

    The best car safety device is a rear-view mirror with a cop in it.

    everything was perfect before maintenance.
    now rear tires are locking so much that results in a drift or 360 spin

    most liekly due to uneven road surfaces and lack of grip, one of your tyres gripped up front and locked up which (without ABS) will act like a pivot and spin your car.

    the only thing you can do is upgrade your tyres to a SUPER soft compound, ensure that all pads are made of the same compound, ensure your discs & drums aren't past their tollerance levels & to drive slower in winters as our roads are notorious for skidding as they have almost 0 grip for cars with cold or old tyres.

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    2 rotations @ 80 KPM!!!??? the only way i can think this can happen is your right rear side are the only brake which got engaged. All other brakes are not equally engaged for any reason like worn Pads or uneven distribution of Hyraulic pressure. This condition is seriously dangerous!
    The first thing to do is to bleed your hydrualic. There is nut at the inside of the wheel axle for this. its 5 min job! apart from this get your pad checked. if replaced make sure to bleed after the pad replacement (not before). Drively safely...
