Hi

I am sure there are 2 holes between the studs that are threaded, and you can screw a bolt in to each of these, to ease off the drum.

If this fails, a little heat from a gas blow torch, and tapping with a hammer should do the trick.

Before refitting, the give hub flange,and centre hole edge a rub with emery paper, and put on a slight smear of copperslip grease on the drum hole edge, to prevent same happening next time !

Good Luck

Don´t forget to give me a rating if I helped please !

John.

Simple enough question first off chalk the front tires jack up the back end put your jackstands under there pull your rear tires if you don't have a impact remeber to loosen your lugs a quarter turn before you lift it off the ground remove rear tires now some drums come from the factory wilh a clip on the studs (an oh jesus clip) pop off with a screw driver some cars as well will have a adujstment hole on the back but if i remeber corretly the cavs dont have one Just incase it does it would be a small capsul shaped rubber plug you would have to pull out then you would use a flat tip screw driver or brake adjusting spoon to back the brakes off if it clicks loudly and is a little resistant to turn your going the right way (OH and by the way make sure the park break is off) If you dont have an adjustment hole its as simple as getting a small ball peen hammer and smacking the front of the drum a few times to get it to break loose from the hub and then lightly tapping around the edges of the drum to drive it outward once again make sure your park break is on

I HAVE A 1998 CHEVY CAVALIER. I JUST REPLACED THE BRAKE BOOSTER, MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS BOX AND BACK DRUM BRAKES. WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKE IT GIVES A CLICKING NOISE AND GRABS REAL BAD ON BACK RIGHT SIDE....


manually adjust the rear brakes up to just touching the drums the drums .en turning the drum a very slight scrape would be about right. Adjust both sides evenly. I hope that you assembled the brake shoes correctly

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE REAR BRAKE DRUM ON A 2000 CAVALIER. iHAVE TRIED PRYING IT BUT NOT WITH MUCH FORCE AS NOT TO BREAK IT


Hello sqill1000
First, make sure the Ebrake is completly realesed. Next, try turning the drum back and forth while
pulling on it. If the easy way won't work, there may be a deep ridge in the drum surface.
Now, remove the 2 rubber plugs on the back of the brake backing plate, look into the drum with a
flashlight and locate the brake adjuster star wheel. You'll need a brake spoon and a thin 4" screw driver, if you don't have a brake spoon, another screwdriver will do. In the front of the adj. wheel is
the adjuster bar, it's job is to keep the adj wheel from turning in the direction you're going to turn it.
Use the thin 4" screwdriver to push the bar away from the star wheel and with the other turn the wheel from the bottom up at least 5 or 6 good turns or more then tap arround the drum again to
help the springs retract the shoes and remove the drum. Hope this is helpful.

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

Rear brake locks up after application. New drums, recent shoes and hardware.


The problem could be your brake shoe are in the wrong location, Drum brakes use two different size shoe on the front and back of the drum assembly. Check it if it correct

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
