You need to adjust them yourself first,crank them out a little at a time till you can not spin the drum but not to tight after that the self adjuster will keep them adjusted

Wheel smokes,brake dragging


Make sure your handbrake cable is adjusted properly. Adjust the rear brake shoes down to where the wheels turn freely with the linings only just touching the drums. Be sure to pump the pedal a few times after adjusting, then try again.
The front wheels (pads and calipers) will just about never bind, so concentrate on the rear wheels. If you do suspect the front wheels, release the bleeder valve for just a second and then try again.

2005 toyota corolla squeaky front brakes when braking at 10mph. changed brakes, rotors, controll arm, pad. What else noise is till there?


anti rattle plates are damaged, remove pads clean rear surface apply thin layer of silicon to pad allowing it to dry then reinstall as per std, this will stop the squeak, or replace anti rattles, silicon is cheaper will last the life of pad, but all new pads will have to be treated the in the same manner .

I have 2000 toyota corolla. Today I had rear wheel cylinder (both) changed. Also the break shoes and Pads (front). After that change, My parking break is not working. Will the parking break is going to...


the guy who knows the answer to that question is the guy who put the brakes back together. he should have adjusted the shoes out, or hopefully replaced them and adjusted them, so that the brakes are good and hence the parking brake will also be good. if not then something is amiss. but applying the parking brakes does theoretically turn the adjuster so as to move the shoes out.

Corolla 2000 brakes, I did change master cylinder,


System may have air in it bleed from farthest wheel to closest.
If rear shoes are out of adjustment re adjust them
Possible but most pads require a "bedding in" 20 stops 50 to25mph or so.

Toyota corolla ae110 brakes binding


Please DO NOT drive in with the vehicle in this condition!!!!
What you have going on is that the brake caliper (part that holds your brake pads) is bad and sticking. Just remove it, get a NEW one from any chain autoparts store,and replace it. You will have to get a new set of pads as well,as due to the binding, the ones on there now are trashed.

Again,PLEASE do NOT drive in this condition as yours and your fellow drivers ,as well as your passengers safety is at stake.

2001 Corolla LE Brakes are not strong


Could be many things to look at. 2001 Corolla, assume disc pads in front, and regular drum style brakes in rear. Generally, most of your braking will come from the front disc brakes, and no adjustment is provided in these. Rear drum brakes can be adjusted two ways. Manually, they are adjusted by accessing the adjustment "cog" or threaded rod via a slot in the back of the plate that the drum fits up against. This should be done when the brakes shoes are first installed. As an alternative, the brakes will automatically adjust when you apply the brakes while backing up. I'd suggest that you find a big old empty parking lot, without a lot of light poles to hit, and place car in reverse, get going about 5 MPH, then hit the brakes firmly to stop. Repeat this a dozen times and see what results you get.

I am, of course, assuming that the brake fluid level is good and you see no leaks from either the front calipers or the rear brake cylinders.
