Home done brake jobs need to stay with an experienced d.i.y. because you put other people at risk when you have no idea what you are doing. No advice from me.


Sounds like the parking brake is stuck on. You'll have to get back under the car or have someone else with more experience fix it for you.

I'm glad you didn't walk him through anything;bad brake job by newbie d.i.y. = road kills ahead
