Jack up one side at a time without the ebrake on as that will engage only the rear brakes remove lugs and have a good hammer handy and tap on the drum until it will pull off

The easiest way is to go in reverse and then press the break pedal firmly. Do this several times. You will need to get a bit of speed, maybe a fast walk.

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

Removal of break drumb


In order to remove your break drum you must first out your car up onto a jack, then you will need to remove the bots that are holing your tire onto the car ( just like changing a tire). Here is a video that will help explain everything http://www.ehow.com/video_2327529_remove-tires-brake-drum.html

Either your rear brake hose is leaking or your drum brake wheel cylinder is leaking. You will have to remove the wheel and drum to accurately find that leak.

Brake shoe on rear XL7 model is sticky and won't retract, have removed and cleaned once already.


Axle seal is leaking gear oil and slung around to the drum? Look behind where lug studs (axle) are.
