Brakes are stuck on Ford Fiesta Zetec diesel (2007)

2007 Ford Fiesta Zetec Diesel

My car has been stood for a couple of weeks and now I can’t move it. It feels like the breaks are stuck on. Could it be that the breaks have seized? If that is the problem what would I expect to pay for vehicle recovery and repair, obviously this would be a ball park figure.

Brakes are stuck on

It is possible that the brakes are seized. If it is just the park brake, you should be able to move the vehicle is reverse a bit easier. Or possibly rock it forward and backward a few times. The brakes shouldn’t be too seized in just a couple of weeks. If the engine revs when you put it in gear, then it may be a transmission issue instead.

Cost of recovery would depend on the company or individual that is towing the vehicle. And then at a worse case scenario for the brakes, it would include brake calipers, pads and rotors. Ball park $300 – $400(USD).
