Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks
When replacing a Peugeot 207 rear wheel brake cylinder, the Workshop Manual recommends that once the drum has been removed, the brake pipe disconnected from the cyclinder, and the cylinder retaining bolt removed, the upper brake shoe return spring should be removed to allow the cyclinder to be withdrawn from its mounting position.
It is not neccessary to remove the upper brake shoe return spring (tricky to do and even more difficult to put back) - just raise the handbrake (emergency brake) lever a few clicks until the ends of the brake shoes are clear of the cylinder. The cylinder can then be manoeuvred over the upper return spring.
