Richard
I have a 2003 JAG X-TYPE. My emergency brake stopped working. My local garage replaced the calipers(sp?) and thought they had fixed the brake.
The drive home was normal at first but almost didnt make it as it drove like the brake was engaged. This a.m. it was undriveable due to the brake was engaged when the brake lever was down. Can you tell us whats wrong?

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
Are you sure both rear wheels are locked up? Any abs or brake warnings on

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

no not locked up.. I think just like a heavy foot of the brake, could move a bit foward then motor choked down

no warnings were shown

So it feels like the brakes are partially applied

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

yes and gets worse as the car is driven

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 8 years ago
Ok could be a problem with the brake booster or other calipers. May even be collapsed brake hoses. What we will need to do is get the vehicle jacked up in the air to see if more than one wheel seems to be hard to spin as this will tell us what can be the cause. Since the rears were replaced it could be the brake hoses in the back.
