2004 Jaguar X-Type Question: rear brakes locking up
I am wondering if the brake caliper piston was retracted far enough into the brake caliper when the brake pads were replaced the piston needs to be wound counterclockwise into the caliper to fit the new brake pads. Could the handbrake be dragging? Drive the car, get the brakes to where they drag, jack up the car and see if one or both rear wheels drag. Support the vehicle and inspect the brake components on the side that drags. Disconnecting the hand brake cable should eliminate a problem with the hand brake. It is a possibility that the caliper has failed. - patrick mannion
