How to remove the rear brake drum on a chev 3500 4x4

Unless this truck was designed different from all the rest? It should be has simple as pulling off the tire and tapping around the back edge of the drum and it should pop off. Be sure emergency break is off, because that will spread the shoes making the drum wedged on. You did say drum, correct? Because if you have rear disc breaks? Pull tire and remove housing (two bolts) holding the break pads. You may have to stick a pry bar between the rotor & caliper to depress the caliper piston/s. A 350 truck probably has 2-pistons on the caliper. Also. get a couple finger visegrips to depress the pistons all the way down before trying to reinstall the break-pads. This way you don't have to bleed the breaks when you are done. just remember to pump them up a few times before you take off to drive. they will come right back up and should work perfectly.

I've removed the back break drum to change the shoes, but the drum will not go back on. any tips?

Make sure the adjuster is backed off enough to allow the drum to slide over the shoes.

Hi: I have a 1991 F350 diesel IDI dually; I just had work done on the back breaks because the back breaks locked up on it. New breaks, new drums, and new bearings. Now when trying to stop when going...

Hi sounds like your front rotors are warped. Do you feel it on one side or both? Your brake booster may not working properly or doesn't get enough vacuum. That make the brakes drag a little bit and in a long run will make the rotor warpe. Check front callipers if they not seized first , mesure vacuum. If it's ok you have to replace front rotors and pads

How do I adjust emergency brake on 1990 ford f 350 dually

Under the cab on the drivers side about even with the door hinge the cable splits for the two different sides, right in this junction is an adjustment rod in the cdables connecter. If all things are the same and the brake is'nt tight enought to hold the truck don't adjustr any hting till you check the rear brakes as your describing the brake shoes worn out and even groung into the drums. The cables only need to be adjusted as the cables are removed or changed and once adjusted are good to go. The rear break shoes can be OK but thier adjustment to be as close to the break drums as possible with the shoes adjusters. You can get into the back of the drum though the adjustment hole but some don't have the hole and the drum will need to be removed. If you have this problem the brakes need to be looked at anyway and worn parts changed to new as failure altogether cvan cause a crash.

Cannot dis-mount the drum to change break pad

Drums Probably Have Deep Groove Cut In Them--BACK OFF AJUSTERS--This Will Allow Removal.

How do I get old brakes off?

Hello depending on what type of brakes you have on (front or back) (Drum breaks or Disc breaks)
For both you'll have to remove the tire. Then (disc) on the caliper ( (the blue piece)) there is two bolts you'll need to remove but be gentle with them as if you break them, their expensive and it'll cause a giant problem. Just take your time, and you should be good. Then from there you can remove the break pads from inside the caliper and remove the rotor (the roung disc type object)
No for drum breaks, their a headache if you don't know what your doing, removing them is simple, but putting them back together is the problem. You remove the outer drum and it will reveal two pads in a spring maze. For this part, you should have a drawing, or diagram, (I cant provide as I'm not sure how the Audi Configuration is) Remember, the other side drum will be opposite the other side -- same with the disc.

I want to remove right rear wheel to check brake shoes. big central nut hard to remove.

You do not need to remove that nut to check your breaks. That nut removes the whole hub assembly. Don't mess with it.

Now you have what are called drum brakes on the rear of your car. The front has disk breaks. Take some wd-40 and spary on the lug bolts and the center hub. Let it soak for a bit and then take a hammer and tap around on the drum to free it up. your break pads are on the inside of that drum.

Removing rear break drum from a 2006 chevy Equinox

You need to de-adjust your rear brakes and/or slacken off the park brake cable to remove the drum as the chances are the drum has a wear lip that the shoes are getting hung up on. ( first make sure there isn't a little retaining screw holding the drum on !..visible with the wheel removed)

Can't figure out how to replace the rear rotor hub.

Your emergency break shoes might be holding you up from geeting the hub off there inside the hub, i think on the back side there should be a slot to get a ajustment tool in there to back them off. If not a big hammer is in order there also might be clips on the wheel studs from the factory. No you don't have to remove the axel. Your the best judge of what needs to be replaced your there, but i would say the ovious rotor, caliper, break pads, and maybe emergency break shoes, maybe backing plate.
