SOURCE: 05 Equinox not able to remove right rear brake drum

Hiya...
Most rear brake-shoe design take some time to adjust than disc brakes...
If you have a special brake adjustment tool that your local automotive store sells, get this tool and pull out the rubber grommet plug, insert the brake adjustment tool until you 'feel' or hear the sound of 'skipping' on the brake self-adjuster spool inside as you wiggle /adjust the tool inside....(push it inside to get a firm feel that you can 'spin' it)
Try to push the tool downward or upward to check if that'll spin the brake self-adjuster part smaller to allow the brake shoes to 'shrink' which should allow you easy removal of the rear brake drum as you wiggle it out.

Be sure not to breathe in toxic brake dust upon successful brake drum removal.

I am still trying to get the brake drums off my 1985 3-wheeled Cushman truckster.


what you want to use is a puller that can pull closest to the taper as possible. apply pressure to a pretty good amount then add heat. Sounds a little crude but it is effective. when you apply heat try to get it pretty even around the drum but only where the taper makes contact to the drum

I have a 1985 3 wheeled Cushman truckster I'm trying to remove the rear brake druma from. Anyone got any Ideas?


that's because the shoe is worn a groove into the drum and now theres a lip that the pad is grabbing on. you need to look on the backside of the drum you will see a hole or a rubber plug pull the plug. look in the hole with a flash light. there is a star wheel. you need to keep turning the wheel to loosen brake shoes then the drum will slide off like butter. not shure what way to turn wheel, try one way if it gets hard fast go the other way until it stops. use a straight screwdriver it pry up or down on the wheel. the wheel is for adjusting the brakes so your backing them off all the way so they are smaller and the lip on the drum will fit passed it.

After aplying E-brake, Left rear wheel is locked up?


The parking brake cable is not releasing, usually due to corrosion within the cable jacket or inside the drum if it has drum rear brakes. Put the rear end up on jack stands and have a helper push and release the parking brake and watch what the cable is doing on both sides. You should be able to see the hang up. If it is inside the brake drum you may want to try a bit of WD40 applied to the cable where it enters the backing plate. Do not go overboard with it as it will collect inside on the drum's braking surface.

1989 chevy 3500 4x4 454 rear brake drum removal. Does the axle bolts need to be removed


Can you tell me which type of axle you have?

Full Floating Axles To remove the drums from full floating rear axles, use the Axle Shaft Removal & Installation procedure in Section 7. Full floating rear axles can readily be identified by the bearing housing protruding through the center of the wheel.


Semi-Floating Axles
  1. Raise and support the rear end on jack stands.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Pull the drum from the brake assembly. If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so that the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.

You may have to back off the automatic adjuster before you can pull the drum from the brake assembly

To install, reverse the removal procedure.

Rear left wheel locks and skids...drum brakes...


Hi:
You could have a parking brake cable sticking, or just your rear brake is over adjusted. Rear brakes can be adjusted in, and after the rear drum is removed, the parking brake cable should be checked to see if it moves in and out. Replace if needed!

How do i change the back brakes


lift the rear of the carthen remove rear tires and take the drums off to expose the brake shoes. the shoes should be at a minimum of 1.5 times thicker than the backing plate that the brake material is bonded to. if it is rear disk the thickness still holds the same.good luck.

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.
