Rear brake procedure to replace pads on e350 class c motorhome1994. Do you have to remove axel


more information on the rear end and make and model of the vehicle ( e350 is rather general and can range through a multitude of manufacturers )
who makes the rear a diff as some the drums come off the hub and with others the axle comes out then the axle nut is removed and then the drum and hub come off

you may be able to identify which you have by removing the wheels and if there are locking tapered screws in the drum holding it to the hub

I was checking back brakes, emergency brakes. The axel on the passenger rear is welded to drum. Why wouldyou do that. Cannnot put check back brakes or install new emergency brakes on back passenger side....


They wouldn't and couldn't, or the rear drum would not turn and the car would not move. You need a special fork tool to go behind the drum and adjust the star fitting in order to release the drum and then you will be able to check the linings and cable.

I have a 1980 Chevy 3/4 ton I am trying to replace the rear brakes and can seem to remove the brake drum. Is there a trick to removing these?


Depending on which rear axle it has you may have a drum that is mounted inboard of the hub meaning that the the drum is held onto the hub with the wheel studs from the inside. To remove this type of drum you have to remove the axle shafts, hub bearing retaining nut, and the hub/drum assembly to get at the brakes. If the drum is mounted on the outboard side of the hub then it may just be stuck onto the hub or, if the drum is loose but just can't be removed then the brake shoes may be hanging up on the lip worn on the inside of the drum. The brake shoes would need to be backed off through the inspection/adjuster hole so the drum will slide over them. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

Rear brakes scrubbing are they pads or drums


pads go with disc brakes
shoes go with drum brakes.

If you have drums in the back, the rear brake shoes may be worn out or are not held together with the springs (a spring may have broken).

Have the brakes checked as soon as possible for broken or worn parts.

Good luck on this repair.

Jeep rear brakes sticking on


You need to have it taken apart and cleaned. If it has drum breaks in the rear try replacing the shoes and spring hardware kit. If its pad and disc then try replacing the pads and possibly the calipers. Its very common for drum breaks to stick on this vehicle more so if it has sat for any length of time.

Rear wheel bearing


if its like the 99 winstar:

safely support the van, remove rear wheel, remove brake drum, remove grease cap. remove caged locknut assembly (38mm socket i think.) then pull the hub assembly from the axel. you may need to cut away the inner race if the bearing falls apart. clean axel, apply alittle anti size compound, then push on the new hub assembly. tighten down the hub nut to specifications (should be on the leaflet in the new bearing package), install dust cap, install drum, install wheel, lower and drive :)

My brakes make noise all the time


Pull the wheels(front first) check thicknes on brake pads. New pads have about 1/2"-5/8" of pad, if your's are around 1/4"-5/16" it's likely
the wear sensor is making the noise you hear. The sensor is a thin
piece of metal located on the end of the inside pad, it is designed to
rub the roter and make a squeeling sound to alert the driver that the
front brakes need service.
I will asume you have drum brakes on the rear, pull drum check the
shoes. Anything under 1/4" i would replace.It's always a good idea
to do both axels, unless one of them is new.
I don't know exactly what kind of sound you hear.If it's a grinding
not a squeaking, you may have waited to long, and it will be more
costly. The info. above will address the most common cause for your
problem, based on the info. you gave me. Hope this helps.
Good luck

Hi, ive worked with bikes mainly and have replaced drum and disc brakes on them. I am working with a ford bronco 2 1988 and would like to know how to replace the brakes on it. I know the front are disc and...


Not much difference replacing the lines and fluids between disk and drum brakes. Huge difference when replaceing the pads. Never force the drum over the pads with a hammer etc. Make sure to take a picture of the assembly before taking it apart when not firmiliar with something. Adjust the brake tension through the site hole once the drum is over the pads.

When doing the disk brakes, make sure that you do not push in the caliper piston at it's edge. Use a C clamp placed dead center on the piston if required. Don't push it in any more than needed.

Binding hydraulic brakes


Do not know MOT, but put the rear axel on support and in neutral with no brakes, turn the wheels to feel the friction... if there, remove the rubber slot cover from the inside of the shoe mounting plate and reduce shoes to minimum adjustment.... if at minimum already, you must remove the shoe and grind out he pivot contact point to allow the shoes to move toward the axel more ie. get away from the drum... if disks, you must find a way to give the disk and pads more clearence. good luck, hny
