Passenger Rear tire locks

Why does my passenger rear tire, lock when the brakes get wet? It happen to me last night after going to work. I drove through a flooded parking lot and after i tried reversing, i believe my emergency brake, locks my passenger rear wheel only when going reverse. if you drive forward it does not lock, but trying to go reverse, it lets you go for about a split second than it feels like if you slammed on your brakes to stop. Right now I'm stuck on my apt. cant get out because i cant go reverse, due to the rear passenger brake, and there is a huge brick wall in front of my parking....

Re: Passenger Rear tire locks

I beleive there is a part in the back brakes that adjusts the brake pads when you are in reverse. There maybe something wrong with this and thats why it only happens in reverse. Hopefully someone that knows more about the brakes can chime in on this comment and help you out.

Re: Passenger Rear tire locks

well the neutral and push does not work i wish it did, but what i did today ones the rain stopped and the sun came out, I put it on reverse and it rolled easily well sorta than putting it back on drive it sounded like it needed brakes on the than the brakes were back to normal, but i replaced the brakes on the rear and well let me tell you i was lucky enough there were not touching metal to metal yet, but the truck needed rear brakes bad, maybe thats why they would lock up. My truck has 72,000 miles now and i had never replaced them ... i know it was about time... but hopefully that will fix the problem no rain yet it was a miracle we had some rain in Laredo,tx. Im just waiting to test it out again to see if this fixed the problem. Thanks for the ideas on trying to solve my problem coloradofans...!
