Binding rear near side brake.
« on: May 17, 2017, 08:51:53 am »
Hi all, I haven't posted for a long time so am hoping someone will take pity on me and suggest a possible solution to the following. I have noticed that my car doesn't seem to freewheel very well on some occasions. This morning I had a tyre pressure alarm pop up, I pulled in to a garage and looked at the tyres, none of them were flat so I checked the pressures. The pressures were slightly low so I rectified this. Whilst doing this I noticed that there was excessive heat coming from the rear near side wheel. I reset the tyre pressure monitoring system which got rid of the alarm. Could the fact that the rear wheel got so hot affect the tyre pressure sensor and is there something I can do to rectify the binding brake/car not freewheeling as it should. After I set off again the car seemed to be freewheeling ok, I am obviously worried about the consequences of a binding brake i.e. Damage, wear and tear and fuel consumption.

Since it's a 16 plate I'd like to think it's under warrany.  Take it back to a dealer and let them fix it.  One wheel 'dragging' probably would throw the puncture light on since it works by the ABS sensors.

Thanks for reply Bert, I have been reading some other posts in the brake section, it seems Binding brakes is a fairly common problem.

I had exactly the same problem this morning in Lincolnshire. Mine was the rear offside. I also had the tyre pressure warning alarm come on, stopped at the next layby, to find all tyre pressures OK. The rear tyre in question was a 2 lbs higher. The wheel and disk were very hot and smoking. I called Mazda Assist who arrived after about an hour. He removed the wheel and rotated the disk. He thought the e-handbrake had been stuck on while driving. He followed me home for about 10 miles and we pulled into another layby, everything seems normal now. By coincidence I am booked in tomorrow morning for my 1st Years service, and I will be asking the garage to thoroughly check the overheating brake/wheel. I have not experienced any noise or grinding sounds. the mileage is only 6800 miles.  Mazda CX5 AWD sport 2016

2016 - Rear nearside again!     

Don’t be fobbed off – there is a known fault and Mazda are not prepared to do a recall, and are sitting back until it manifests itself and inconvenience the owners, rather than bite the bullet and do a recall.

When my rear nearside “cooked” in France when towing my caravan I lost 10 days of my holiday as the parts were not available. A disc and handbrake seal kit had to be sent from England to fix the car.

A new caliper, brake pad set, seal kit and replacement disc is what you need to fix it properly!
