SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoes on a 2004 chevy venture

The rear brake shoes use a U clip to hold the shoes together. A simple solution to this change job is to change one side at a time.
Slowly unclip the U clip from the top of the shoe and remove the left shoe and spring. Replace the left shoe and reconnect the U clip, then do the same for the other shoe. Clean, adjust,and grease the self adjuster and you're done. Do the same for the other side of the van. If you take both sides of the clip off you're in for some heavy duty stretching with pliers unless you have the right tool.

when you pull the hub off take a picture of the brakes so you can see all the parts, so you can tell where everthing goes back together.

How do I adjust the idle on a 93 mercury topaz?

I would clean the throttle body first and the idle air control motor(IAC). Clean where the plate sits and on the back of it/them. You have to remove the IAC to clean it. Brake clean and a toothbrush works fine. If it still is high. Diagnostics need done for the IAC. Most times it is the IAC.

How to adjust brakes on 1993 mercury tracer ?

Drum brakes are self adjusting. Every time you put on the brakes while backing up, they tighten. If you just replaced the shoes, just do this a bunch of times and they will tighter themselves

I am replacing the rear brakes does any one have a drawing for this

I just find this (click over this link for zoom)...


Fig. Exploded view of the rear drum brake assembly - LINK
The rear brakes do not require manual adjustment. Adjust the shoes by sharply applying the brake pedal several times while driving the vehicle alternately forwards and backwards. Check the brake operation by making several stops while driving forward. The self-adjusting mechanism will sufficiently adjust the rear brake shoes without any manual tightening at the brake shoe adjuster. If the rear brake shoes are manually adjusted, the additional action of the brake shoe adjuster can cause the brakes to become over-tightened and result in binding or overheated rear brakes.

Hope this helps.

If you are just removing and replacing the pads, you will need, i believe a 13mm wrench, a screw driver (flat head) and a "turn in caliper compression tool" because your rear calipers also act as your emergency brake when it's engaged. You will see 2 divits across from eachother on your caliper piston. Once you have the tool inplace and the slots lined up with the tool, turn clockwise and turn the caliper piston in. If it will not turn, then it's defective and will need to be replaced before you can install the new pads. If you need a turn in caliper tool, you can rent one at any autozone or advance auto, pay for it up front and get a complete refund when you are done and bring it back.
Good luck!
