IT IS POSSIBLE THE WHEEL CYLINDERS are wrong and need too much fluid to push brakes out. or rear shoes are not adjusted correct. this could be from drums too big(unlikely since new) shoes are not fitting to drum correct.You can take shoes off and set them in drum the whole shoe should contact drum sometimes just the ends contact. If this is case sand off ends of lining to make it fit .
If wheel cylinders are bad they would leak. might try a different brand of cylinders.

SOURCE: CANT GET DRUMS OFF BACK BRAKES

If you can spin the drum that means the brake shoes are not tight to the drum so just take a hammer or dead blow and hit the drums a few time that should loosen it up. You can use bolts to push it out but I can't remember what size they were off my head, I know a 12mm socket will fit over it.

SOURCE: Rear Brakes drum 2004 Kia Rio

The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.

WHAT CAN BE THE PROBLEM IF THE REAR WHEEL KEEPS TURNING AFTER HANDBRAKE IS TENSIONED


Hi Well that depends weather you have a drum brake car or a disk brake rear brake car , most early cars had cable to rear brakes and some have rod ,but either should hold on the 3click of hand brake and to park max 5.
Rear brakes with drums could be either worn out linings or oil seals leaking oil onto the brakes and the same with the disk brakes but you may not see the problem untill you remove the drums.

I replaced all 4 brakes on my 98 chevy malibu. for some reason i am not getting pressure back. but am being told i dont need to bleed the brakes. should i anyway. or could the adjusted on the rear drums...


Both air in the brake lines and rear drums too far out of adjustment will cause the pedal to go to the floor repeatedly.

Bleed from the wheel that's farthest away from the master cylinder first, typically driver's side rear. Then bleed the others, ending with the one that's closest to the master cylinder. Generally, right rear, left rear, right front, left front.

Adjust the rear brakes until you hear them rub a bit as you turn the wheel, then back off a couple of notches. Be sure to use the brakes when backing up at first, let them adjust themselves up to where they should be.

I had brakes checked, they were good. rotated wheels tires ,rear brakes lock up . Could mechanic have damaged cylinders inspecting brakes.


no, but he could have disturbed dust that can cause the brakes to lock. He might have also loosened the adjuster. Take drums off and reinspect for dust, fluid leaks, and adjustment. You could also try backing up and braking several times to let the brakes adjust up tighter.

98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car. Rear brakes okay, adjusted cable to 3 clicks. What am I looking for?


If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.

The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.

The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.

Those are the things you need to look for.

Put new brake shoes in 98 toyota starlet do i need to bleed or ajust from inside hub as i have not much rear brakes now


I am going to assume, that you are refering to the rear brakes.
There should be a small access hole in the backing plate for the adjustment .
By turning the star wheel inside of the drum, will either bring the shoes into contact with the drum ,or back them right-off,depending which side of the car you are working on. Good luck

Left rear wheel will not turn at all and is locked on. The right rear is just dragging. The handbrake appears to have released normally. Car is a one year old small Chrysler - it belonds to a friend and is...


Does the car have drums or disc brakes on the rear? If it has drums then the handbrake lever may not be releasing on the rear shoe itself or a spring or brake lining could have let go and got jammed. If the handbrake lever is the problem then removing the wheel and striking the drum with a large ball peen hammer should release it (may be barbaric but it works), this will not solve the problem the brakes would have to be removed and serviced or replaced depending on the problem. If the vehicle however has disc brakes on the rear then the caliper on that wheel may have become stuck or seized, normally they are replaced nowadays if this occurs since rebuild kits are not readily available. Still with disc brakes could also have stuck pad in its guide on the bracket, although much less likely, also tends to be less costly since you only have to remove and clean it up (rust, etc). If the handbrake is inside the rotor (internal drum), then you could have a problem with the shoes or lever releasing inside the rotor (depending on the setup on the rear). As well if it were not brakes in very, very rare occasions a wheel bearing could lock up, not very likely though. hope this will help you good luck

My daewoo nubira 98 makes a catching noise evreytime the rear wheels spin round while im braking from the rear brakes after ive just had new drums cylinders and shoes fitted. is it because its all new and...


Get your brakes checked by whoever done them.

Brakes shouldn't having catching sounds, I would remove the drums and check for any foreign items. New brakes you would sometimes hear a rubbing sound, but nothing sharp and catching as such.

Check: shoes for foreign bits, even small amounts of gravel etc,
Inside of drums for damage.
Shoe springs are all attached and connected to the right places.
Cylinders are not loose.

This should solve your problem.

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
