Do ford windstar have drum rear brakes


Some do and some don't, it was optional. I would say that rear drum brakes are the most common. You can see the drums easily by just looking under the rear of the wheel.

Rear wheel bearing


if its like the 99 winstar:

safely support the van, remove rear wheel, remove brake drum, remove grease cap. remove caged locknut assembly (38mm socket i think.) then pull the hub assembly from the axel. you may need to cut away the inner race if the bearing falls apart. clean axel, apply alittle anti size compound, then push on the new hub assembly. tighten down the hub nut to specifications (should be on the leaflet in the new bearing package), install dust cap, install drum, install wheel, lower and drive :)

2003 windstar rear brake problem.


Take the lug bolts and try putting the broad side against the drum without the tire rim. It sounds like the rear brakes are adjusted too tight. Also check the emergency brakes which may have to be adjusted looser now that the linings are new and thicker.
If you can run the lugnuts against the drum with the broadside hitting the drum you will duplicate what is happening with the tire rim. You will be able to see better and can adjust the brakes without the tire in the way.

Brake problem


it sounds like your disk brakes are the problem. two ways to fix the problem. champfer your brake pads or basically glue your pad to the caliper piston with some stuff called disk brake quiet. the shop probably does not want to take your whole front brake system apart again. good luck.
