Post Braking Problems SL560

Any one that can help with a braking issue , I have a 86 SL560 that the rear brakes locks up/drags on the rotors. After the car sits a while the brakes release and seems to work fine . This has happen twice in the last week.

Your 560SL rear brake hoses need to be replaced. Over the years, the internals of the hose collapse and act as a one waay valve. Consider replacing the front ones as well.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant

I agree with the rear flex hoses, just went thru the same thing, six months later did the front!
