SOURCE: 05 Equinox not able to remove right rear brake drum

Hiya...
Most rear brake-shoe design take some time to adjust than disc brakes...
If you have a special brake adjustment tool that your local automotive store sells, get this tool and pull out the rubber grommet plug, insert the brake adjustment tool until you 'feel' or hear the sound of 'skipping' on the brake self-adjuster spool inside as you wiggle /adjust the tool inside....(push it inside to get a firm feel that you can 'spin' it)
Try to push the tool downward or upward to check if that'll spin the brake self-adjuster part smaller to allow the brake shoes to 'shrink' which should allow you easy removal of the rear brake drum as you wiggle it out.

Be sure not to breathe in toxic brake dust upon successful brake drum removal.

SOURCE: how to remove the rear brake drum on a 1999 chrysler town & count

The star wheel is accessible after removing the elongated rubber plug on the drum housing right next to the brake bleeder screw. Use a "brake drum spoon" to rotate the star wheel one click at a time. The proper direction of rotation is the direction the star wheel does not want to go since you are turning it against the hold of the ratcheting no-back. After rotating it several clicks, jiggle and pull on the brake drum and if it doesn't slide off with a normal amount of force, rotate the star wheel several more clicks. If I recall, the star wheel only has about 25 clicks of rotation or so before even brand-new, thick shoes are backed off away from the drum a significant amount to the point that the auto adjuster has a considerable amount of slack in it (no outward pressure).

SOURCE: Rear drum brakes system operation

I believe the bar should have a spring attached to it or relatively close by. when you let go of the brake, the spring pulls the shoes off of the drum and the bar keeps the brakes where they are and does not allow them to be pull back too far away from the drum

Adjust parking cable 99 dodge dakota -drum brakes


Unless you have replaced the cable, it should never need to be adjusted. If you can reach under the vehicle, and when wiggling the parking brake cable, if it is taut (not sagging), then it is probably adjusted properly. What usually causes the parking brake cable to appear mis-adjusted (the parking brake won't hold the vehicle), is that the self-adjusters in the rear drum brakes are not working properly. This is bad because it means that you are not getting proper braking from the rear brakes as well as having the parking brake issue. This can cause premature wear to the front disc brake pads/rotors and affect braking power and control under certain stopping conditions. Front disc brakes work so well that many people never realize that their rear brakes aren't doing their fair share. The purpose of the self-adjusters in the drum brakes is to keep the rear brake shoes at a consistent distance from the drum's inner surface as the shoe lining wears down. If the adjuster works correctly, the parking brake will always stay in adjustment. You CAN adjust the parking brake cable, but if the problem is actually with the self-adjuster, you are masking the real problem, and later on when you need to replace the rear brake shoes, you will find it impossible to put the drum back on over the shoes as the parking brake will have the shoes pushed out too far. Have a mechanic check out the self-adjuster mechanism. It is always a good idea whenever you replace the rear brake shoes to replace all the rear brake hardware as well. You don't replace rear brakes nearly as often as the front ones, and the cost of the hardware is minimal in relation to the satisfaction of knowing that non-corroded parts will work better and provide longer service than the older, gummed-up and rusted hardware that is currently installed.

How to adjust rear brakes shoes on toyota corrolla 1999


the shoes on drum brakes should auto adjust by backing up and applying pressure to the brake pedal (you may hear a clicking noise from the springs on the adjustment stars as they turn). If this does not work, the mechanism may be broken, aligned improperly or stuck by corrosion. Most drum brake assemblies have an access hole in the drum or backing plate to make manual adjustments, comment back to me if u have these access holes and I will walk you through the procedure...(check your shoe lining thickness as you may just need new brake shoes)

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

1994 corolla 1.3,rear n/side brake drum runs hot, new shoes fiitted,is it poor wheel cylinder pistons?


Check that the brake shoes are adjusted correctly and that the new shoes ar'nt to thick.It is always better to skim the drums to fit new shoes if needed.Poor wheel cylinder will cause no brakes at that wheel unless it is siezed and not releasing

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

Changing front brake pads


You shouldn't need to remove the calipers altogether just to replace the pads. You have remove the split pins or retaining springs on the old pads, then prize back the caliper pistons enough to remove them. Then push the pistons back some more enough to get the new pads in. Then reassemble and test.
