Tonight i noticed when i pull my e-brake up not like tight but just slightly pull it up while moving. My passenger rear wheel goes clunk clunk clunk clunk clunk. I had the wheel bearing replaced about two months ago. Just replaced rotors and brakes a few weeks ago. What do you think the problem could be?

the e-brake you can tighten, i dont know about the clunking, unless the wheel is unbalanced or something, did you throw a balancing weight?

Rotor could be out of round in the parking brake drum area. Had the same thing with a new set of drums for my rear brakes on an OBS.

I have a similar problem. I installed new ebrake cables, new rear rotors and new pads. I double checked everything after the install and when I slightly pull the brake while driving, the left rear side clunks once like something is tapping the bottom of the car. The caliper bolts are tight and the pads and shoes are new. It only does it on the driver side, so I'm thinking it may not even be the brakes causing the problem, maybe a bad upper strut mount.. or even worse, the agx struts I installed a few months ago? :noes: I had swapped the rear brakes from drums to disc shortly before installing the agx struts, but can't remember if it made the clunk before. :(
