SOURCE: the removal of rear brake drums on a 1998 chevy k3500

You should be able to just pull them off! If they are stuck on you may have to get them off by beating on them with a small sledge hammer. Sounds primitive, but thats how its done at the shop. Just hit it straight on the front to break the rust loose. Whatever you do...don't hit the wheel studs. They aren't fun to replace.

SOURCE: remove the rear brake drum on 2004 Dodge Caraven

No just make sure your emergency cable is off and take a large hammer an hit it around the edge or corner lightly and spin at the same time also try pulling with your other hand as you spin this is a technique all mechanics use its very unlikely that you will have to loosen up the shoes with a brake spoon.REMEMBER THE OUTER ROUNDED EDGE ONLY WHERE ITS THE THICKIST.

Hi how do i adjust my handbrake on my mits diamante 1996

Im assumimg its rear drum brakes ! Remove rear drums and inspect for shoe wear - if worn replace and have drums resurfaced ! If ok clean with brake clean making sure to keep your nose mouth and eyes covered to avoid getting brake dust inhaled or swallowed or in your eyes ! There is a adjuster knob on the shaft for shoe tension - some are asseable from a he through the backing plate and others you have to removemthe drum ! Adjust the whell in short increments and turn the the drum by hand until you can slightly feel or hear the shoe touch the drum mate surface - repeat for other sIde

There is no trick really. I would heat up the center hub area with a torch. Also a puller would work. Or a huge rubber sledge. If you are going to replace the drums, then big sledge and block of wood.

How to take rear drums off 2003 mitsubishi galant

Hello, there are two ways to get the drums off. One way is to use a brake spool, behind the drum is a small little opening (possible covered with a rubber tab just remove that). Inseart the brake spool into the the opening and rotate the star wheel till the brakes are backed off the drum. Second choice is use a hammer, very carefully tap around the drum until you can pull it off.

What kind of rear breaks do I need on my 2003 mitsubishi outlander

The rear brakes are the same drum & brake shoe type.
Each rear wheel has a brake drum that rotates with the wheel. When the brakes are applied, a brake shoe is forced into contact with the brake drum to slow wheel rotation...........................sodeep

Rear break drums

The rear brake drums are retained onto the spindle assembly with a cotter pin which locks a nut in place.Remove the cotter pin,and spin the nut off,then remove the washer behind the nut,and the brake drum assembly slides off.You must catch the outter wheel bearing as the assembly is sliding off.When reinstalling,the bearings need to be set with just about .001" of free play.Reinstalling TOO tight will burn up the bearings.
