Default Tahoe, strange situation (Holland), lm7

Hi everybody,

I'm from Holland, but we don't know what to do anymore.
Last week, we had a sound at the rear, our brake. A view minutes later, we had no brake anymore. We did get help from a garage, who says they are Chevy Experts.

Two days later, the car would be fixed, and we went to pick it up. The complete rear right break is fixed, everything had to be replaced.

After 10 minutes driving, there was a lot of smoke coming from the right rear, and the break got stuck, the car was slowed down without braking.

We went back to the garage, they kept the car again. Today they called us, and they did say, they ordered all the parts over again (from my point of view very strange), and they did replace the new parts again. The problem was not solved, and now they are doing a lot of things, and are switching things from right to left, rear to front, but they say they really don't know whats wrong, and they did never see this, is this true.

You can't move brake parts from front to rear. Seeing how it'* just one rear wheel, it has me thinking the parking brake is the problem.

i believe those have the disk with the internal drum parking brake, as dan said they probably put new rotors on without backing down the adjusters. either that or the sliders and metal inserts need to be cleaned and greased. either way these guys dont sound like "experts"
