Hows it going guys?
Well on my way home last weekend i started to smell a harsh brake burning smell. Pull over, my rear brake rotor is glowing red hot! First thought is the E-Brake is on, check it and its not. i put the car in neutral and i can push it across the parking lot, so its not locked up too bad. I had been on the highway at 75 MPH for a half hour or so when i noticed it. I drove the car home slow on the backroads, car braked / rolled fine. Took the other B5 to work every day this week.
I haven't had the time to tear it down yet, but i figured i would get some opinions on what to check. I figure im going to jack up the car, try and spin the wheel. If i feel any resistance pull the brakes apart and grease up the pins and make sure the e-brake mechanism is working correctly.
Anyone else had this happen? Should i check anything other than what i listed? Rotors and pads replaced 5,000 miles ago. As always, thanks guys!
