SOURCE: replaced rear break shoes on 2003 ford taurus but

You will need to loosen the adjusting clip. In the back of the brake plate where you would bleed the brakes and at the bottom of that plate is a hole that probably has a rubber plug in it. Pop that plug out and put it someplace you won't loose it.
Then take a screw driver, (they have a regular break adjusting tool for this) But a screw driver will work. There is a little toothed wheel onthe other side of the plate down at the bottom of the brakes in the middle.
You need to back that off a little until the shoe compress back in so the hub will fit back over them.
I am assuming these are shoe brakes and not disk brakes correct?? Once you get the shoes compressed and the drum on and the wheel all the way back together then drive the car in reverse and hit the brakes semi hard. They have an automatic brake adjust that in reverse will set them properly. Do that several times and you will be good to go. Now if these are disk brakes You may need to take off the other side to see if you replaced them correctly by looking at both sides and comparing the two. I see no other reason why the hub would give you problems otherwise. Wile you have that hub off if they are disk brakes you may want to add some grease to the berrings just for good measure. Let me know how we come out. Its hard for me to help without seeing the situation. If these are drum brakes you will need to bleed them after you get them back together. Let me know and If you don't know how to do this I will guide you through the process. The Raz

SOURCE: 97 ford f150 changed rear brake shoes

Make sure the parking brake is not on, and that the brake adjuster is screw in all the way, adjust brakes after brake drum is on, from the back side on the backing plate, there will be a slot for adjustment, or you might have to knock out the tab, to be able to adjust brakes.

Drums 2002 ford escape


1) Make sure your parking brake isn't on (I've made that mistake),
and
2) Use a RUBBER MALLET to pound lightly on the outside of the drum to free it. Especially if your brake shoes are worn all the way down, it is likely that there is a ridge (a lip) on the inside surface of your brake drum. If this is the case, REPLACE THE BRAKE DRUMS WITH NEW. Check eBay for parts first, as you can often find new brake drums there cheaply.

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

Rear drum brakes system operation


I believe the bar should have a spring attached to it or relatively close by. when you let go of the brake, the spring pulls the shoes off of the drum and the bar keeps the brakes where they are and does not allow them to be pull back too far away from the drum

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
