SOURCE: how to adjust caliper for rear brakes on a Mazda Protege Es.

yep, this is what u do. i read that this controls hand break and you need to completely loosen that using hex (3mm) key. BUT, when u tighten it back up, u need to unscrew it about 1/8th, VERY important, or ur pads will be rubbing way too much against the rotor. I actually had to do about 1/2 the turn to make the wheel spin w/out too much pressure.

SOURCE: How do you change rear drum brakes for a 1996 mazda protege

If the rear drums are seized you will need to tap on the sides with a hammer while rotating the drum, this will loosen the hardware inside and allow it to come off.

If it is the shoes that will not come off, you need to find the spring and retainer that hold them on and disconnect them.

SOURCE: replace the rear brake drum system with disc brake system

Rear discs and callipers are much smaller. You are going to need the right stuff to do this or you will have too much effort to rear and they will lock up.

Changed shoes and hardware and can't get the drums on without forcing them on.


Your emergency brakes are engaged. Most likely the cables are rusted and won't release. Cut them near the rear brakes, adjust the shoes to fit the drum. replace them when you can.

I replaced the rear drum brakes on my 1998 Mazda Protege but the drum won't fit over the shoes without forcing it on. As best as I can tell, the adjuster is all the way back.


Check the parking brake cables to see if they are stuck and will not release all of the way. Try some penetrating oil on the cables where they enter the backing plate and at the connection further toward the front. Try pulling the cable on both ends to see if the oil will give you more movement of the shoes.

Are rear brakes in 2000 mazda protege self adjusting?


If the rears are not adjusted right, it could be a problem. And they should be self-adjusting, although often the adjusters get frozen from rust, corrosion, dirt. To adjust them, you drive in reverse and hit the brakes. Every time you do this the adjuster should click-it has made one turn on the adjuster's star wheel. Do it a few times: reverse, press brakes; reverse, press brakes. If brakes were too loose, and adjusters were working, the brake pedal may brake better now-pedal may be higher when brakes are pressed. If not sure, peel off the rubber plug on back bottom of brake backing plate. You should see the adjuster star wheel. Use a screwdriver and see if you can turn the star wheel either way. If still not sure, take the brake drum off, pull the shoes off, and take off the adjuster for cleaning. They are very simple devices, only a few parts to them. If they need cleaning to free up, do so. Then use some high temperature grease, very sparingly, on the adjuster's threads. Put them back on, shoes, and drums, then do the reverse and brake again to get them adjusted. Should work great now. When you pull the drum off, you can check if you need new brake shoes- not likely, but check.
Good luck.

Noticing a little more travel on brake pedal and handbrake lever and wonder whether some adjustment can be made to reduce this travel on brake pedal


your rear brakes are worn or the self adjusters are rusted, assuming you have drum rear brakes & not disc pads in the rear.
Try backing up several times with very hard stops to activate the self adjusters. If you don't back up much, the self adjusters can not work. Parking brake will be adjusted at the same time.

please rate.

What special tools are required to change the rear brakes of a 2002 mazda protege?


If it is a rear disc brake system, the only special tool would be an allen wrench:

Turn the manual adjustment gear counterclockwise with an Allen wrench to pull the caliper piston inward (turn until it stops).

If it is a drum type brake system...no special tools...just a screwdriver, pliers....

Mazda protege 1999 rear brake replacement


Have you adjusted the adjuster to bring the shoes close to the drum? Always force the pistons in (the return springs should hold them in) and then adjust to make a tight fit after replacing. When the shoes are on right, there is no way for the piston to come out, as there is only a quarter inch of travel.

I can't reinstall the rear drums on my 1994 mazda protege.


your new drums are thicker than the old ones due to wear. You may have to back the self adjusters off manually a few turns to get the new ones on. The adjuster is the little threadeded bolt lookin thing at the bottom of the brake shoes holding them apart. Turn the star looking dial to move it in aways. Afterwards back the car up a few times and push the pedal hard to stop. Repeating this will readjust the rear breaks after assembley. Hope this helps, Clay
