SOURCE: need to replace brake line from rear axle forward

Chanses are it broke behind the gas tank wear it runs along the frame rail. You don't need a diagram to fix that, just unhook it at both ends and break it off or cut it off buy the tank and take the pieces with you to a auto parts store and they will match it up with new line, just take a tape measure and measure from the rear axel to the front block or perportioning valve, and don't worry about the piece behind the tank, just run the new line alongside the old one behind the tank unless you want to pull the tank out.

SOURCE: 2003 windstar rear brake problem.

Take the lug bolts and try putting the broad side against the drum without the tire rim. It sounds like the rear brakes are adjusted too tight. Also check the emergency brakes which may have to be adjusted looser now that the linings are new and thicker.
If you can run the lugnuts against the drum with the broadside hitting the drum you will duplicate what is happening with the tire rim. You will be able to see better and can adjust the brakes without the tire in the way.

SOURCE: replacing a rear wheel bearing

To remove the rear axle to replace a bearing you have to remove the rear differential cover and remove the small retaining bolt holds the spider gear shaft in place and then slide this shaft out far enough to remove the "C" shaped axle shaft retaining clip. Once this clip is off then the axle can be slid out and the bearing & seal replaced. Make sure that none of the spider gears or thrust washers behind them get out of place and you should use a new retaining bolt when reassembling the differential components as they come [or should come this way] with thread locker to prevent them from coming loose.

Can a non abs disc brake back axle be converted to drum brake abs using a spare axle


Should not be too difficult if the axle fittings are the same. You can use the brakes without the ABS. Don't need to change anything on the brakes. Just leave the sensors unconnected. If you want ABS the you will need to obtain all the components, ie manifold, lines, sensors on all the wheels and possibly a computer for the ABS.

If you have drums on the rer yes you do have to remove the axle its simple though you unbolt the 6-8 bolts on the end of the axle then it just simply slides out thats it there mite be some resistance but there isnt anything else holding it in. and you dont have to worry about putting it back into the same spot eather just slide it back in and line up the drum.

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2.2L 4 Cylinder. I will be replacing my rear axle beam relatively soon, and was wondering what size drums and brake shoes i will be needing? I don't know if it...


First of all, you have no rear axle. Are you talking about the subframe or your hubs? As for drum size, I would go with the same size that are coming off. If you want to (and can) go bigger, you just need to make sure they have enough clearance inside your wheels. When ordering parts, you will be asking for: wheel cylinders, shoes, spring kit and drums. Note: the wheel cylinders you will only need to change if you are changing the SIZE of your drums or IF THEY LEAK. To see if they are good, pull your drums, smack your shoes from one side then to the other (using the palms of your hands) then back to center. Pull back the rubber boots and inspect for moisture. If they're dry, don't change the cylinders. If they're wet, they're leaking and need to be replaced. Now, if you do need to replace your wheel cylinder(s), you need to look in behind and assess the condition of the brake line fitting. If it looks rotten beyond all hell, you'll likely be into doing the brake line(s) as well. NOTE: when you actually do get into changin your brakes, do ONE SIDE AT A TIME. Drum brakes can be complex and if you take apart both sides then you have no reference as to how to put them back together!

How do you remove the rear axle on a dodge ram 1500 p-up 2 wheel drive?


1st jack and use jack stands to safely lift the truck.disconnect brake lines and cables, remove tires,unbolt universal rear end to driveshaft, unbolt center bolts from axle to leaf springs, pull the rear end out from the side-much easier with two people. reverse process to put the new one on. I assume when you say axle you mean entire rear end. If you need to remove one axle side just take off tire and brake then remove rear end punkin cover and pull shear pin to remove your ring gear and planetary gear-pull axle shaft.

G'day, On my car, a 1999 mazda 626, the passengers side rear wheel brake is not working equally to the drivers side. It probably needs adjusting and deglazing. What is the most efficient way to deglaze...


Yes this may sounds like the brakes have glazed over. This best way to fix this is to replace the pads and get the drum skimmed. At a local dealer, they will put the drum on a special lathe, and take a very small cut from the inside diameter of the drum. They will also measure the drum first, to see how viable it is to skim or wether full replacement is your best and cheapest option. After skimming it will have the finish comparable to a brand new drum. Also check the operation of the slave cylinder (what operates the pads) to be sure that is working correctly. Goodluck! Let me know how you got on.

I changed my rear brake shoes on my 2004 Chevy Colorado about 8 months ago i haven't had any issues with them. But lately when i start up my truck and drive off right when i step on the brakes to come to...


Assuming you have drums in the back,you don't get much in the way of squealing.
I would say the quality of the brake lining is not what you want.
Also you need a clean machined surface on the drums

I would possibly turn the drums, light skim cut,if never done since new
I would use 60 then and 80 grit sand paper on the linings
You need all brakes parts to move correctly,no rust anywhere
and things lubed

Check the parking cables for releasing

If you still have issues,then it is the brake material.

I would only do this work myself
I have never had a brake issues at all, in 47 years
All brake issues are done professionally. Not knocking them,
I just never have issues.
