Can't get drum back on the rear wheel after replacing pads & brake hardware


make sure the star wheel brake adjuster at the bottom of the drum is turned all the way in, and make sure the slave cylinder at the top is about centered and the shoes are not above it.

I put new brakes in my saturn. i put new front calipers,rotors and pads and power bleed front only. i also put new brake pads in rear but did not replace drums.after all that i can't get a hard brake...


try adjusting the rear brake shoes but.....spin the rear wheels first is u get the feeling of the shoes grabbing then releasing ( the tire gets loose then tight as u rotate it) u will need to have the drums cut on a brake lathe or replaced...when u have this done , then adjust the rear shoes until u get a slight drag on the rear wheels..go pump the brake pedal to seat the shoes if the wheel spins free adjust the shoes more an repeat until they have a slight drag after pumping the brake pedal

Hearing noise from right rear wheel on 99 saturn sl. sounds like flat tire while driving.


If pressing the brake pedal does not affect the sound, buy a pair of rear wheel bearings and pay a shop to install them for you. If the rear brakes have not been serviced in the past 10,000 miles then buy all that stuff, including slave cylinders if so equipped, and have it done as well as you will save on labor as the thing will be completely apart

Hello, My son has a 97 saturn sl 4dr that has rear disc brakes that has given up the ghost. He has purchased an 01 sl 4dr that has rear drum brakes. can we swap the axles on these cars. I hate drum...


Don't know the answer but consider a few things

You now have newer model saturn
That means totally different electronics,
throughout the car

Braking Systems or any vehicle systems
are designed by engineers to do specific
things a certain way ,and millions of dollars
are spent getting the final product to the dealer

Your not doing a restoration or modification,
as you would on, say a 55 chevy here

So my answer is, you don't have one thing I can
think of in the braking system that would be compatible
from disc to drum, when you consider the ABS System
Electronics and now way you have the same master cylinder
or wheel cylinder diameters,volume,metering valves etc.

Someone may give you a very technical answer, that it has &
can be done by someone on this site.

I personally could engineer it,but wouldn't, it is a daily
driver and 10 years old. You don't spent any time or money
on something like that.
They don't even make Saturns anymore
