Question about 1989 Ford Festiva
I need to change the wheel bearing but I can't get the drum off to get to the bearing.
If I am right. The wheel studs protrude through the drum. Slacken off the hand brake cable. With the hand brake in the off position, hit each side of the offending drum with a large ball pin hammer. Take care not to do any damage. Between every this operation move the drum round and continue to hit the drum. There is a stud mounting plate behind the drum and this sticks tight to the drum. When you are reassemble the the brake components, dress the drum, clean out your brake and apply a smear of high melting grease to the stud plate. Because you have cleaned and grease one side of your brakes, you must clean and grease the other side before you tension the brake cable.
