2001 Hyundai Accent new rear brake noise

I just changed the rear brake shoes, drums and springs and since then there is a friction noise. I already have 270kms and the noise is not going away (I hoped that after a couple hundred kms it will stop making noise).
Is this normal? Will it go away, or I did something wrong?

Jack up the rear wheel and spin it, do this with the other wheels chocked for safety, and listen for any rubbing sound, do this with both rear wheels and if one is bad then remove the drum again to check if the retainer has come off of the brake lining, hope this helps you.

2005 Santa Fe back wheel lockup when in reverse

The automatic brake adjusters work when the car is in reverse and you touch the brake. They should not lock the wheel however. An inspection of the rear brake assembly on both sides might show the problem. total brake repair might be appropriate on a car that age.

How do I adjust the rear drum brakes on a 2001 Hyundai Accent?

To get a "ball-Park" adjustment, just turn the adjustment mechanism (with drum removed) 'till you can just put the drum back on and it turns without binding. Your self-adjusters will finish the job for you as you drive. Worst thing you can do is set initial adjustment too tight as that will burn the shoes before they get a chance to properly break in. Doing it how I said, will avoid that.

hi from the uk in answer to your question you do not need to disconnect or remove the abs sensor you just remove the brake drum from the hub then remove shoe locating springs that retain shoes to backplate then lift off and remove bottom return spring this then allows you to slip the brake shoes off w/cyl at top complete with spring and auto adjuster ? then to remove the handbrake cable just pull the shoe and the quadrant lever apart so cable can be lifted out of the hook up on lever ? you can now interchange shes/springs /adjuster on your bench ? also run te adjuster wheel back on thread to off position this will enable you to fit shoes back to backplate and moreso help in fitting cable to its hookup ? when brakeshoes are refitted ? and centralized on back plate ? you can manuall rotate the adjuster wheel and keep tryin the drum for fitting and rotating with no binding trial/error method when satisfied ? refit screws to secure drum then do same with other side when completed you must bleed both wheels this will improve b/pedal your handbrake will also be better/less travel when applied hope these instructions help you ? best wishes from uk
