problem #2

Dec 212004

S-10 Pickup 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles
The emergency brake pedal assembly failed without warning. As a result the vehicle begin to roll. The dealer states the plastic flange on the left of the ratchet tensioning spring spool broke, which jammed the brake mechanism. When the consumer applied the brake while stopped, it would not set and the vehicle rolled back.
