SOURCE: 89 toyota corolla rear drum brake problems.....

there should be three or four large nuts on the inside of the drum. now these nuts are on realy good so it takes a lot of force to get it off if you have trouble getting it off you should get an extender to help with the force. Now with the break fluid going every were it could be cause you broke the metal tube.that is easy to replace. just follow it up and undo it.

SOURCE: 1987 Jeep Wagoneer Tail Lights out, Brake lights work.

hello, sounds like something is unpluged, dash lights have small bulbs in the basils, they do not normally blow, do you have the wright tail light bulbs in , they are not all the same, i would check them first, if you had to , you could run a jumper wire from your parking light in front to the rear tailights, just the running light only, there is two or three wires that run to tailights, you might could try that, friend of mine has done that,

SOURCE: I have a 1997 Toyota Camry, 4 cylinder, automatic,

the constant velocity joint is either held on by bolts (most likely reverse thread but might not be) or just the pressure of the carrier (holds the brake components)  you may have to loosen (you can take out if you need) the front strut inorder to finagle it out, disconnect the strut from the carrier at the bottom of the strut, and depending on the setup of your car (im unsure of toyotas) you can either pull the carrier up and out of its holder (via the ball joint) or turn it and push it to the side (if you disconnect the tie rod to help turn the carrier or take it out, you will have to get a professional to re-align your car) so just turn the carrier using the steering wheel if you dont want to pay for an alignment.

WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT PULL HARD ON THE CV JOINT. the bearings will pop out and youll either have a really hard time getting them back in or your gonna buy a new one.

(dont loosen the center nut on the strut if you dont want to die) only the side 3 nuts on the strut tower.

(this job is usually a pain so grab a prybar to help and do it carefully and dont get aggrivated. you may need a friend to help.)

(last thing, if you need help getting everything back together, place a jack underneath a stable place on the A-arm to re-tension the spring so you can bolt everything back together without too much fuss.)

any questions do not hesitate to ask, this job can be dangerous and you wont have a moving car if you do something wrong.

Hope this helps!

I don't know how to take them off, but they are definitely drums. I have them too. It can be done really reasonably at Just Brakes or Midas. I take mine to Just Brakes.

Brake light failure

Bad circuit board tail light asseblise connector pin to board poor connection or burned push in light bulb sockets
On my '93 Chevy PU the new ones went bad within months I repaired the original ones by soldering all connector pins to the board cleaned the sockets chipping out melted plastic been working for five years now.
Care must be taken to keep solder from preventing wire connector install while using enough that plugging it in will not break these delicate unions.
Required pulling them several times to Finnish repair successfully.
Very disappointed in replacement parts.

The tail lights do not work. The headlights, blinkers, and brake lights work. I checked the fuses and they are all good.

It can be faulty tail light bulb or its issue with tail light control switch or its wiring's are short.

Check the voltage at fuse slot of tail light.Do you receive 12 volt there.If not,then it says tail light switch is not receiving power supply.

There are few help links related to your problem.I suggest you refer the list and check the help links.Click the link below:-----

1987 toyota pickup brake lines need replaced

Best of luck with that. You need a lot of PB or WD40

But honestly, brakes may just be the first of your problems.
Gas lines, mounts, exhaust and of course the frame are all next
I literally had a truck frame break in half
Sometimes its just time, IMHO
