You can watch a YouTube about doing rear brake shoes which are different from rear brake pads which are used on disc brake set ups.

SOURCE: How do I replace the rear brake shoes on a 2001 Chevy Venture

If it's like my 2000 you have to place the clip in the lower holder first, then put the shoes on and put the clip in the shoe holes. The front-facing shoe has to get clipped first, since you'll need use a short pry bar to fit the clip in the back shoe and there's much more clearance for that one.

Once that's done then you can put the hardware on the top, finishing with the spring.

SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoes on a 2004 chevy venture

The rear brake shoes use a U clip to hold the shoes together. A simple solution to this change job is to change one side at a time.
Slowly unclip the U clip from the top of the shoe and remove the left shoe and spring. Replace the left shoe and reconnect the U clip, then do the same for the other shoe. Clean, adjust,and grease the self adjuster and you're done. Do the same for the other side of the van. If you take both sides of the clip off you're in for some heavy duty stretching with pliers unless you have the right tool.

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..

Noise during braking


I read some comments about the rear brakes. Some of the base models have drums on the rear and they have a tricky brake expander on the top. Also some drums come with bearings installed and some do not. Last, the shoes may have a thick and thin shoe on each axle side. This may be because the Emergency brake needs thicker shoes. Old time front shoes had a long and short shoe with I believe the long shoe rearward.

As some people had trouble obtaining the correct set of shoes, finding the adjusters and returning them to zero; it is possible that the Emergency brake reel needs to be released to let the E brake cable to return to its fullest length. This would let the rear shoes have the most room for adjustment and retract them.

Many speak of 2 hours minimum for this project. With bearings needing to be installed in cheaper drums and more than 1 brake shoe called for, this may be a fitting project for a Professional.

How to retract rear brake shoes on a 2002 malibu


If you mean youre changing the pads on your malibu and it has rear disc breaks you can use a C Clamp to slowly squeeze the piston back in the caliper. I normally keep one of the old pads on the piston and use a quick clamp that has a squeeze handle to push the piston back in. This will give you room to put the new pads on.

I have a 2001 cavalier and the rear brakes keep locking up. we've replaced the master cylinder, proportioning valve, pads, rotors, hardware, shoes, drums, and right front hub bearing. got any ideas on...


Was this problem there before you changed the Brake shoes. The cavalier has shoes on the rear.
It seems like the leaning show the SHORT one is not facing the front of the car where it should be. If you check the shoes one is shorter than the other in a set. Hope this works. Some model year Cavalier also had a problem with the Backing plate the plate the shoes attaches to.
