BRAKKE DRUMS REAR


The springs popped out of place or the adjuster went too wide. OR the wheel cylinders has expanded too far to allow the shoes to retract into place.(Squish them back in).
The shoes may have slid out of alignment,also.
New brake shoes? They are fatter than the old ones. back off the adjuster(Takes 2 screwdrivers)

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.

Rear drum installation


The new shoes are thicker than the old ones. You need to turn the adjuster in "till you get proper clearance. Self adjuster screw is often frozen... if so, use a good solvent and coat threads with white grease before re-using. Once you do this, the drum will go back on. Heres a tip: use a round file or 60grit sandpaper to knock down the rusted lip on the inside leading edge of the drum (the edge that is closest to the backing plate when installed) This edge is cut off when machining the drum, most people working at home don't have drums cut and therefore run into this problem. Don't adjust too tight, or you will burn the new linings. Allow the self adjusters to take up the slack.
Good luck

Rear brake replacement


try to shorten first the adjusting bar between the shoes. this bar is used to adjust the handbrake.
it is now extended because it was used on thin brake shoe. wth the new thick brake shoe, you have to shorten this bar again.
