SOURCE: how do i remove the rear brake drum from a kia

You need to back off the adjuster located at the top the brake assembly.There's an rubber grommet on the backing plate.You need to use a short flat screwdriver and ratchet back the star wheel in which you acess through the small hole in the backing plate.Now there's an arm that rests on the notches of the star wheel of the adjuster so the brakes don't back off, as the going down the road.This needs to be pushed away from the star wheel in for you to back off the adjuster.This will contract the brake shoes away from the drum.This will allow you to remove the drum.


**A word of caution: if you don't move that arm, You'll be able to adjust the star wheel!but your now expanding the shoes closer to the drums! If it doesn't have automatic adjusting brakes so,you'll have to expand the shoes one click every 7000 miles or click it then spin the drum,continue to adust until you feel an slight drag on the drum as you spin it!

SOURCE: Rear Brakes drum 2004 Kia Rio

The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.

SOURCE: rear drum brake locked up

remove the brake line to release the pressure. Look at the brake fluid to see if its contaminated. Its common for when the wrong fluid is added to brake fluid you will cause all the rubber parts to swell. and turn the fluid black. You may need to replace all brake components if this is the case. If the fluid is not contaminated you may be able to just release the pressure and wiggle the drum or pry to get it off.. Then you may just need to replace the wheel cylinder and or the brake hose. When you get the drum off you may notice the wheel cylinder has been leaking. With the line open press on the brake to verify the line is colgged or not.. When done bleed the whole system

Burning smell brakes


Most people do not remove the rear rotors and inspect the Emergency Brake shoes. These often peel off the metal backing on the shoe and jam inside the interior Drum of the rotor. Some people will hear a rusty grinding noise after pulling away from a stop.

These brakes have the old "star-wheel" adjusters and may need to be adjusted more loosely to remove the rotor. Its a bad system in my opinion; the drum always rusts and corrodes and the Ebrake shoes are banana peel thin. With corrosion, the drum acts like a grinder and chews up the brake shoes. Some other configurations use a mechanical link on the caliper to make the service brakes act in an Emergency. It will override a hydraulic failure, but you still need good pads on the caliper.

Emergenct brake will not hold


The linkage could need to be adjusted. Or the brake shoes inside the rear drums are worn out and need to be replaced. If you accidentally drive the brake on. It doesn't take long to wear those brake shoes out. You can normally smell them when that happens. On today's vehicles they are actually designed with 3 different brake systems. Front brake disc and rotors, rear disc and rotors, and inside the rear brake rotor their is a small brake drum where the emergency brake shoes are located. The only purpose for the shoes and drums is emergency brake only (normally). Hope this helps.

How to fix emergency brake when frozen or stuck to drum


I live in Michigan. I know this problem good. They ought to make the Engineer who designed this mess fix every one of them himself.

If you have the rear Rotor design, you have a drum system inside the middle of the Rotor. These "shoes" can peel off of the metal and fall into the drum portion. They are also adjustable like the old style with a star wheel.

If you look at the attachment points for the Emergency brake cables you will see a lever which may have a rubber boot on it. This assembly goes through the Backing plate and tightens the Ebrake shoes when the cable is drawn tight.

What you want to do is retract this lever by pounding on it from the backside; the opposite direction that the cable pulls it to work. Then pop the access plug and crank the star wheel to a looser position. It helps to have both rear wheels off the ground and the trans freed up so the rear wheels will turn.

Start oiling the studs and center of the rear Rotor Yesterday so that oil can penetrate the studs and break the rust loose from the hub center. Always use "Never seize" or similar product on the contact places when reassembling these Rotors to the hubs.

As some Ebrake cables may actually tighten as designed, you may have to unload the tension on the rear brake cables. This can be done by releasing the pressure on the reel under the drivers dash or by pulling on the cable and secure it with a pair of vicegrips wrapped in a cloth to protect the cable. This outlet is under the drivers seat in the undercarriage.

What you will find is that you should get the rotor off to access the small Ebrake shoes. The drum will almost always be rusted and pitted and I have yet to find someone who can or will turn one to resurface it. Despite the rotor portion being in A1 condition.

I believe these Ebrakes need to be used constantly to keep the drums shiny and useable. You will see the thin banana peel lining on the new Eshoes and realize they can not possibly survive daily use.

I am trying powder coated Rotors on the rear of my F150. While the Ebrake drum will rust as badly as a stock part, I at least hope to be able to remove my Rotor from the hub much easier with a coated surface and the cooling fins may last a little longer on the Rotors. Mine were purchased from an Ebay supplier in Canada and were slotted and drilled also.

Good luck on this, use new hardware.

The rear breaks have pads and rotor, but also look like they have a drum set up. How do I remove the combination rotor and drum?


remove the caliper and the pads.remove the caliper bracket that is around the rotor that the caliper sits on.then some of these have 2 screws that hold the rotor to the hub,remove the screws and hit the centre of the rotor near the hub.if it doesn`t use screws then hit the rotor near the hub to pop it loose.you may have to heat up the rotor with a torch and hit it again to get it loose.if it uses an e-brakes system inside the rotor(the part that looks like a drum) then you may have to back off the e-brakes like you would with just drum brakes,or you could try to pry off the rotor knowing you may have to replace things inside the rotor for the e-brake system.

1999 F250 4x2 - was stored for 3 months and when I tried to move it - the right rear wheel turns but the left rear wheel won't turn. Took off the brakes and caliper - still won't move. I can move...


Hello, The rear rotor has 2 sets of brakes on it. The other thing is to look for slight movement in the driveshaft when it clunks. Depending on the rearend, some have to have both rear wheels off the ground to turn each side. And of course the trans in Neutral.

With the rear wheel you have an Emergency brake and a drum brake inside the center of the Rotor.
The rear of the brake backing plate has a rubber plug which is covering the Star-wheel adjustment for those drum brakes. You can try to loosen the Star-wheel to disengage the Emergency brake shoes. You can try pulling the brake cables toward the cab, to loosen the cables.

If this does not help, your Emergency brake shoe probably rusted off the brake mount and is jammed inside the drum. The linings fall off the metal like banana skins. I can tell you that if the Emergency brakes are a State safety requirement, you need to consider new rotors because the drum portion is usually trashed with rust.

I hope my Solution is very helpful to you.

How to remove brake rotors on a 1996 ford explorer


How to replace the rear brake pads on a 1995 through 2001 Ford Explorer The system utilizes a drum-in-hat type rear brake rotor. The integral drum allows the use of a drum-and-shoe type parking brake system. All other components are similar to their front disc brake components Remove the two bolts on either side of the brake hose with the rubber boots. Do not remove the four bolts where the axle ties in. The two bolts to be removed require a 10mm socket/wrench. Loosen the pads from the caliper Rotor Removal In order to take the rotors off (replace with new or have them machined), it is best to loosen the emergency brake shoes. To do this, behind the rotors, in the back there is a rubber plug, remove that and you can use a screw driver to engage the teeth of the adjusting screw, turn it clockwise to loosen, usually 10-20 teeth. Usually this means turn it downward. After this, it may still be difficult to get the rotors off without tapping them. Use a rubber mallet and hit them from behind. Before really whacking the rotor, make sure you have loosened the adjusting screw enough. It may take heavy swings of the rubber hammer to do this. It will eventually break loose. Parking Brake You might want to check the parking brake while you are here. To remove:
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Remove the outboard return spring.
  • Remove the adjusting screw spring.
  • Remove the rear brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove the brake shoe adjusting screw and nut.
  • Remove the front brake shoe hold-down spring and pin.
  • Remove both parking brake shoes and the inboard return spring.
  • Check the parking brake lever for excessive wear and replace as necessary.
To install:
  • Position the front parking brake shoe to the backing plate and install the hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the rear parking brake shoe with the inboard return spring.
  • Position the brake shoe adjuster screw and nut on the shoes and install the rear shoe hold-down pin and spring.
  • Install the brake shoe adjuster spring.
  • Install the outboard return spring.
  • Adjust the parking brake shoes and install the rotor, caliper and wheel.
  • Lower the vehicle and tighten the wheel lug nuts to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
ADJUSTMENT
  • Measure the inside of the drum portion of the rear brake rotor
  • Remove the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Using Brake Adjustment Gauge D81L-1103-A or equivalent, measure the inside diameter of the drum portion of the rear disc brake rotor.
  • Subtract 0.020 in. (0.508mm) from the first measurement, adjust the brake shoes to that size
  • Adjust the parking brake adjuster screw until the outside diameter of the parking brake shoes measures 0.020 in. (0.508mm) less than the drum measurement.
  • Install the rear disc brake rotor.
Reassembly Reassembly is easy. Put new or machined rotors back on by sliding them over the lugs (they should slide on easily.) Loosen bleeder valve (having a catch bottle handy is good). Push calipers in slowly (using a c-clamp or large channel lock pliers), close bleeder valve. Put on pads. Lubricate metal clips with small amount of anti-seize. Re-adjust the emergency brake by turning the opposite direction from loosening. Refill the brake master cylinder

How do i remove the rear rotors


Realize all that is holding them on after you take off caliper slider assembly, is rust & possibly rear emergency brake shoes, inside drum inside rotor. I always engage emergency brake 1 to 2 clicks then ride around the block. That gets rid of rust & ridge on drum. Release emergency brake.Jack up truck, remove tire. Spray around center of rear hub, near studs also, with a good penetrating oil. Then remove 2 retaining bolts that hold rear caliper slider to rear spindle, & remove slider assy & caliper. Now take good sledge hammer & whack center & outside of rotor. Sometimes it takes a bunch of good hits, then they come off.
