I'm assuming you have the parking brake off right? You need a rubber mallet and start taping all around it to break it free it will come off.

SOURCE: Rear Wheel Bearing Repair; 2005 pontiac aztek

Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

SOURCE: 2006 Pontiac Torrent rear drums

They pull off just like any other vehicle, unless you live in an area where they use salt. Brake and suspension parts on these rust and sieze quickly. Soak with penetrating oil and keep tapping around perimiter. I do this for a living, and I've had Torrent drums take me hours to break loose (I'm surprised the wheels even came off)

How to replace rear wiper on a 2005 Pontiac Vibe?


It's pretty easy, just get the wiper from your auto part store of choice/online (see: it may need to be ordered for you, or you'll get lucky and the store will have it in stock), then remove the plastic cover on top of the nut holding the wiper to the rear hatch. Unscrew the nut-- SAVE IT, you'll need it to ----> replace it with the new wiper blade. Put the blade on, rescrew the nut and *presto*, you're fini!

Rear brake drum is sticking how do you remove brake drum?


Remove wheel and make sure parking brake is off. Pull on drum. If it won't move take a big hammer and hit the sholder of the drum They will get rust on them and may stick. A quick jar with a hammer usually helps with this. http://www.ehow.com/video_2327529_remove-tires-brake-drum.html

Rear Brake on passenger side makes a noise like a high speed rub


Thanks for the inquiry.
This sounds like the either the tattle-tail is giving you a signal the the brakes are worn and need to be replaced before they wear the drum/rotors. Depending on the extent of the sound it may also mean the shoes/pads are worn down far enough you have metal on metal scraping the rotors/drums making this noise when you apply the brake. In either case it's time to re-build your rear brakes.
Kind regards,
TF

Adjusting the parking brake on 03 pontiac vibe


If you look under the van on the driver side (usually) you'll see where the two cables from the rear inter-connect with the main cord to the front. Here, you should find an adjustable bolt that you can tighten. If it is not here, it may need to be tightened from there rear tires.

If you have drum brakes in the rear, these are most likely "self-adjusting" brakes, which may interact with the emergency brake. Everytime you back up, and apply the brakes, you are activating the self adjuster (you would have seen this located at the bottom of the brake system between the two brake pads. This is the self adjuster. Try going in reverse at about 5 miles per hour, and hitting the brakes firmly (not slamming on them). Drive forward again, and firmly press the brakes. Go in reverse again, and apply brakes firmly again; (do this about 4 or 5 times to get the rear brakes adjusted). Try the emergency brake again and if still not tighter, purchase or look in your repair manual as to how to adjust the emergency brake.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
