If this is a rear rotor having a Emergency drum or simply a brake drum, it is often necessary to force the Emergency brake closed to eliminate clearance problems.
With some vehicles, the hub will rust and the brake drum or rotor will be bonded together. Penetrating oil, rubber hammer, and rotating the drum will help the oil spread behind the fixture.
Sometimes you need some heat.

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

Cant adjust back brakes to get drum back on


the adjuster wheel has to make the brake shoe 'spreader' shorter-yo9u need to rotate the adjuster wheel so the brake shoes are closer together to get the drum back on-ideally, adjust it so that there is slight pressure when you slide the drum on.

I am working on a 2000 jeep wrangle sport. i cant get to my rear brakes because of a cover. how do i get that cover off so i can get to my rear brakes


That "cover" is the rear brake drum, part of the braking system. Jeep Sports come with drum rear brakes, not disc brakes. Once the lug nuts and tires are off, the drum will jut pull off. It may take some gentle force (hammer taps on the rear side) but there is nothing else securing it other than the rim and lug nuts.

Cant get rear brake drum off all bolts are off


use a dead blow hammer to tap on the drum and see if you can get it to release.
if you do not have a dead blow hammer -- use a 2x4 and a regular hammer to tap and try and release the drum.
one more thing to double check is to make sure the parking brake ( E-brake ) is dis-engaged and the cable to the drum is loose.

Cant cant remove rear drum brakes on 2001 ram 1500


You need to remove the rubber plug on the back of the shoe hold down plate. Next you need a brake adjusting tool or a flat screwdriver to back off the adjuster. This operation will take a few turns depending on how deep a groove has been worn in the drum. If it is tightening, you've gone the wrong way. Next remove the drum. Hope this helps you. Good luck!

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.
