The rear suspension on a Toyota Celica equipped with a 1.6L engine uses a rear hub to allow the rear wheels to turn. These hubs have a bearing that allow the rotation to happen. When the bearing starts to seize up, then the rear wheels won't rotate, and that could cause the wheel to lock up. Before that happens, you need to remove the rear wheel bearing hubs from the car, which should take about an hour.
