How to change rear brakes ad drums in 2005 kia rio

Posted by on

  • amidalak Apr 30, 2009

    I read the repair book. It says there should be 2 retaining screws on the drum...mine doesn't have any! I tapped on the drum lightly to loosen it but it won't come off. I took the dust cap off but it has one of those funny lock nuts on there. I looked it up in the "wheel bearing" section and it calls it a "lock nut" and that it will need to be replaced. My parts dealers don't carry them. Help

brake drums ar faily simple to change, if u take the wheels off ul see a little centre cap, behind the cap theres a 21 mm nut, be careful not to mix up the nuts cos they are opposite threads, n/s is left hand thread.
remove the nuts (i advise replacin the nuts) then tap the drum while u spin it jus to loosen it off then jus pull it off, be careful with the bearing cos they'll fall out, IMPORTANT! when tightening the centre nuts back up they jus need to be nipped up NOT tight, jus enough to take the play out of the bearings but keep it spinning freely, when put the wheels back on make sure theres no play in it

SOURCE: how do i adjust my rear drum brakes on my 2003 kia

Assuming that youve got drum brakes, they are self adjusting and cany be ajusted and more then they want without frying something, if they are not adjusting properly your self adjusters are probably frozen.
You can get them from kia for 20 bucks a piece and if you do get them unfrozen make sure to check the teeth on them, they are very fine and very commonly strip off, kia call them strut assembly.

SOURCE: Rear Brakes drum 2004 Kia Rio

The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.

SOURCE: parking brake on my 01 kia rio(standard) no longer holds

You may want to revisit those rear brakes to make sure the parking brake linkage is hooked up properly. There is usually a spring that needs to go over the parking brake linkage and make sure the cross bar is facing the right direction and holds both the shoes and the parking brake linkage.

I am working on a 2005 Kia Rio with drum brakes. I have put new brake shoes on it and now the drum will not go back on over the brake shoes. What do I need to do to get it back on the car?


Make sure the adjuster is set all the way in, that the shoes are centered on the backing plate and that there is no ebrake cable tension.

Parking brake on my 01 kia rio(standard) no longer holds


parking brakes are adjusted at and with the rear brakes,..(drum brakes that is),.....as you adjust the rear brakes to have a slight drag as you spin tire, the parking brake is adjusted at the same time,...they work together with that one adjuster,....as you pull on the parking brake, it makes the brake shoes spread apart just as they do when you push the brake peddle,..by adjusting the rears you'll also find that the brake peddle feels better too.
