If its because the car has been standing still for a long periode of time you can release the drum brakes with a hammer just hitting a wheelbolt right on and then the brake will loosen, its because waterfumes and condens in the air corrodes the brakes causing it to hold together, and a knock will release them.

Spray it with some kind of lube, and then hit the face of the drum with a hammer that should free it up.
that is typical.

I have a honda c-rv 97 and it produces grinding sound on the rear left wheel. When I jacked the wheel and tried to remove it, rhe rim got stucket with the wheel drum so I used a piece of timber to hit the...


Most likely your rear brake shoes are worn down far beyond the min limits and you now have metal to metal contact, which causes the grinding noise, overheating and poor braking. You most likely will need to replace the drums. The other rear wheel will probably be the same.

Trouble with ABS Brakes system on 2001 Chrysler T&C Jerks real ibad in rear while driving


I do not think this is an abs problem but rather a out of round drum, this problem only happens when you are braking ? if this is the case then i would check the rear brakes.
First make sure the rear wheels are spinning freely, if you use the e-brake then make sure there is not a cable holding.i bad e-brake cable will sometimes not release the wheel or both rear wheels causing the brakes to stay on in the rear, they may not be on all the way but on to cause the rear drums to over heat and get out of round causing a bad pulsating when braking.
Jack up the rear of the car and make sure the wheels are free spinning, if they are not then you will need to find out if its a cable, bad adjustment or frozen wheel cylinder. If the wheels spin free then have some one step on the brake and see if wheels lock up then release the brake and make sure they spin. next is to do the same with the e-brake.If all is good then replace drums or see if they can be cut. The last thing would be if the wheels are free and the car shakes when driving along and not braking then you may have a bad tire or bent rim. good day.

The rear drum wont come off as i would expect


Yes, Undo the 32mm nut, first. And, don't get the bearings dirty with dust from the brake drums, or , if you do, replace the inner and outer bearings with new greased up ones.prev.gif next.gif REAR DRUM BRAKES Brake Drums REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. On vehicles without rear bearing hub, remove the dust cap, cotter pin, nut lock, wheel bearing nut and washer from the spindle. Remove the outer wheel bearing. Remove the drum with the inner wheel bearing from the spindle. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. Remove the grease seal.
  4. If equipped with a rear bearing hub, remove the drum by removing the retainer screws from the drum and pulling the drum from the hub assembly. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. To install:
  5. On vehicles equipped without rear bearing hub, lubricate and install the inner wheel bearing. Install a new grease seal. Install the drum to the spindle. Lubricate and install the outer wheel bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the bearing preload following the procedure outlined in the "Rear Wheel Bearing'' of this section. When the bearing preload is properly set, install the nut lock and a new cotter pin. Install the grease cap.
  6. On vehicles with rear bearing hub, install the brake drum to the hub assembly and install the retaining screws.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Adjust the rear brakes as required.
  8. Apply the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained, prior to moving the vehicle.

What kind of rear breaks do I need on my 2003 mitsubishi outlander


The rear brakes are the same drum & brake shoe type.
Each rear wheel has a brake drum that rotates with the wheel. When the brakes are applied, a brake shoe is forced into contact with the brake drum to slow wheel rotation...........................sodeep

Rear wheel locks up when appling brakes


Hi, check wheel for bad/leaking brake wheel cylinder. An easy way to do this without removing wheel is to look at the outside of the drum from the backside for any brake fluid. If the backside of the drum looks wet, replace wheel cylinder. If it looks dry, remove tire and drum to inspect wheel cylinder for any brake fluid. If rubber boots on end of wheel cylinder appears to be dry, adjust rear brake turning adjusting screw (long bar on bottom with a "star" in center), replace drum, if you cannot put the drum back on easily, back up the screw you turned until the drum goes on easily but without too much slack, start car, apply brake, check drum to see if it can come off easily, if not, repeat until drum is snug, but not tight.
New rear wheel cylinder part avg.: $25-$35 ea.

) Slightly break the rear wheel lug nuts seal while on ground. Just loosen do not remove.
) Jack up the rear wheel.
) Check to see the wheel will turn so you know the brake shoes are not binding against the drum.
