I assume you are attempting to take the rear brake drum off- if so take the wheel off of course, and tap the drum with a rubber mallet(or hammer-at own risk)- to break the drum away, some times brake drums will have one or two holes on the face, you'll be looking at the drum and see them, find a bolt that fits in the hole or holes and tighten them into the drum, it should push the drum off the shoes, be sure to pay attention to how the shoes come off take a picture of them before breaking them down its a good reference.

Question about 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0L L4 Which Brake Shoe goes Where, Longer one front or back and vise versa?


Longer brake shoe goes in the rear, these are called self energizing brakes, this is how it works, the shorter front shoe forces the longer rear shoe into the drum when the brakes are applied reducing needed pressure to apply the brakes, the rear shoe does most of the braking..

Hi, I managed to get the brake drum on after putting new brake shoes on but now it is very tight and got very hot going just a short distance, why is it doing that? 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 L L4


make sure that the automatic adjuster is adjusted all the way off
check that the replacement shoes were not over sized
adjust hand brake so that the shoes are free of the drum
the shoes will not wear in as they last for years so if you cannot get the drum to spin freely after correct adjustment, take it to a brake shop and have your work inspected for correct assembly
you should have replaced both left and right brakes so what did you do to one side that didn't have a problem

Drum will not go over brake pads please help


If you look at the bottom between the shoes you will see the self adjuster you will have to turn it in by hand to draw the brake shoes in and once you get the drum over the shoes you need to adjust them back out until they almost touch the drum. Hope this helps

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

Rear brake grinding noise when pressing on brakes


The grinding noise in the rear brake drum means that brake shoes are warn out and the metal part of the shoe is touching the drum. You need to replace it asap as it will damage the inner part of the drum and than replacing shoes will not help without skimming or replacing the drum.

Brake drums


the brake shoes are likely stuck in the grooves worn into the drum. You need to back off the brake shoe adjusting wheel to loosen the brake shoes.
Also, the face of the drum usually has a couple of threaded holes you can screw bolts into to help pull the drums toward you.

First, hit all the way around the brake drum with a big hammer to loosen the drum from the center hub.
Then, istall the screws to help pull the drum.

to back off the adjuster with a screwdriver:

  1. NOTE: If the brake drum will not come off, follow these steps.
  2. Loosen the brake shoe adjusting screw nut (2047).
  3. Using a screwdriver, move the brake shoe adjusting lever (2A176) off the brake adjuster screw (2041).
  4. NOTE: Move the adjustment tool handle downward to loosen the brake shoe adjusting screw nut.
    Use the Brake Adjustment Tool to loosen the brake shoe adjusting screw nut.

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
