Re: [DML] Rear Wheel Squeak



Warren,  I jacked the front end up. The passenger wheel is very hard 
to turn while the driver side spins with relative ease.  I took the 
wheel off and the brake pads seem held against the rotor.  How do 
I "unstick" this or adjust it to make the wheel spin easier when the 
brake is off?  Is there something I should lubrucate that is not 
easing off when the brakes are released?

I haven't looked at a brake system in years, so please don't talk 
too much over my head until I learn the Delorean brake system.

Thanks,

Paul
