1993 Toyota Corolla rear brake adjustment?

Just took drums off, drums, pads and hardware(springs) look pretty good. Back driver side had trouble getting drum off and now to put back on. How do I adjust the shoes so I can get the drum back on. The reason I took off to take a look was grinding noise when traveling at times, never a problem very long - usually after the car sat for a time.

Ok to adjust the shoes first obviously have the shoes set up with springs and everthing ready to go ,,then youl see the straight roundish threaded bar running in the middle from shoe to shoe and attached a round piece which can move using a flat head,,but you need to use another flat head to pinch back the little arm thats connected to the piece your adjusting ,,thats just ther to prevent the shoe from moving itself,,youl no when you look what i mean... hope this helps,,,

I have a 2003 toyota corolla S edition. I need to get the rear brakes replaced, but when I went to the parts store for rotors and pads, they told me I might need drums and shoes. How can I find out what...


The best way would be to remove the wheel and see if you have drums or discs. Disc brakes on the rear will look like the front brakes, as discs are required on the front of 1970 vehicles and newer. You will see the rotor which will be shiny where the pads have rubbed it. On a drum, it will look like a rusty metal bowl facing away from you. If you have custom wheels you may be able to see through the spokes, but dust guards will not let you tell from the back.

I got new brakes put on my car last year and theyre giving trouble again. i thought brakes lasted longer than that


It depends on the driver, the driving conditions, and the quality of the brake pads. A ot of stop and go driving will wear them out pretty fast. If the driver has habit of resting one foot on the brake pedal or riding the brakes, they will wear out very quickly. Poor quality brake pads or shoes do not last very long.

How to adjust rear brakes shoes on toyota corrolla 1999


the shoes on drum brakes should auto adjust by backing up and applying pressure to the brake pedal (you may hear a clicking noise from the springs on the adjustment stars as they turn). If this does not work, the mechanism may be broken, aligned improperly or stuck by corrosion. Most drum brake assemblies have an access hole in the drum or backing plate to make manual adjustments, comment back to me if u have these access holes and I will walk you through the procedure...(check your shoe lining thickness as you may just need new brake shoes)

Drum brake spring location


hi, the spring i think you are talking about will be the spring for the handbrake/parking return where the handbrake comes into the back of the drum there will be two holes one on either brake shoe, just below where the handbrake adjuster is fitted it is verry hard to put it in the holes but it does go eventually....hope this helps

How can I get the springs back on rear brake pads on 1999 suburban? I took the brakes off and now I am having problems putting the springs back on. Any solutions on how to make this a little easier?


there is no springs on brake pads,
if you mean rear drum ,brake shoes,which springs are you having trouble with,the round cylinder springs that hold the shoes fast to the backing plate or the the return springs that bring the shoes back after being pushed out by wheel cylinders.

Need instructions to replacing rear drum brake pads. I've changed


This is usually pretty simple. Start by removing the brake drum. Sometimes the brake pads themselves prevent easy removal. There should be an adjustment hole on the back side of the backing plate. Pop the rubber plug out. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to turn the notched disc. one way will tighten and the other way will loosen it, usually both sides are different directions. Once the drum pops off you can begin replacing pads. I like to take a digital photo first, just in case... I then take each piece off one at a time and set it on the ground exactly how it went in. There is usually one big spring that holds the two shoes together, this one is tricky to release, but it's easier if you adjust that tensioner all the way in first. There will also be a couple of springs with retainers holding the pads in place. There will be a notch in the retainer, you'll have to push down and twist 90 degrees to release retainers and springs. They make a special tool, but you can use a pliers or vice grip if you're careful. Don't loose the pin or spring and retainer. Clean everything with brake cleaner and start to re-assemble.

2001 Corolla LE Brakes are not strong


Could be many things to look at. 2001 Corolla, assume disc pads in front, and regular drum style brakes in rear. Generally, most of your braking will come from the front disc brakes, and no adjustment is provided in these. Rear drum brakes can be adjusted two ways. Manually, they are adjusted by accessing the adjustment "cog" or threaded rod via a slot in the back of the plate that the drum fits up against. This should be done when the brakes shoes are first installed. As an alternative, the brakes will automatically adjust when you apply the brakes while backing up. I'd suggest that you find a big old empty parking lot, without a lot of light poles to hit, and place car in reverse, get going about 5 MPH, then hit the brakes firmly to stop. Repeat this a dozen times and see what results you get.

I am, of course, assuming that the brake fluid level is good and you see no leaks from either the front calipers or the rear brake cylinders.

1993 Toyota Corolla rear brakes


While you have the lower spring compressed, reach behind the backing plate and turn the pin to line it up to the slot, instead of turning the spring. Good luck. Hope this helps.

96 Cavalier passenger rear brake lock up when wet or cold


Bad PROPORTION VALVE ... the back brakes should only be doing 30% of the stopping with a bad proportion valve it will send more pressure to the back during braking and cause it to lock up. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
