Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

Brake peddle is low,

Pedal, not peddle. First make sure reservoir is full at the brake master cylinder. Then check your brake pads (for disc brakes) and/or brake shoes (for drum brakes). When the pads or shoes are very worn down, you will get a low pedal. If you have disc brakes on the front and drums on the rear wheels, first try just replacing the front brake pads. If you get a good pedal after the front is done, many people tend to let the rear brake shoes go unless they are making noise. These systems are designed to put most of the braking force on the front discs, so the rear shoes do not need changing as often.

Does my car have rear hand brake shoes

it may.. I have seen these systems and if they looked at these shoes when they had the wheels off they should have changed them then..not charge extra for this..most newer cars have front and rear disc brakes that use pads.. the rear drum is much smaller in size and has seperate shoes in it.. now, there is a cable clamp you can get that will tighten the handbrake cable to take the extra slack out of the ebrake system..unless you really want these ebrake shoes replaced..did you pay for a complete brakejob? ram it down the shops throat and watch them work on it..I hate these half do it shops...

The rear passenger wheel is making a grinding /rubbing noise is it an easy job to repair also there seems to be more brake dust on that wheel is this the cause of the problem due to the wheel bearing ps...

This definitely sounds like a wheel bearing going out, or possibly the rear brake shoes/pads are worn out. Either way you will have to take the wheels off to determine the cause of the noise. Changing the wheel bearing or brake shoes/pads is not that difficult of a job and with the right instructions, you will be back on the road in no time. For detailed information on changing the wheel bearing, please go here. If it turns out to be a break shoe/pad, then please go here for detailed instructions on changing brake pads/shoes.

Most car post 1990 production, have a warning device, that will warn the driver, just prior to the front brake pads being completely worn out. The Mitsubishi Lancer is no exception. This warning device may not be included with non O.E.M brake pads. This may sound expensive, but the SAFE solution, would be to replace the front brake pads and brake rotors, with genuine Mitsubishi O.E.M. parts. Again, this may sound expensive, but can you put a price on safety?

Rear brakes scrubbing are they pads or drums

pads go with disc brakes
shoes go with drum brakes.

If you have drums in the back, the rear brake shoes may be worn out or are not held together with the springs (a spring may have broken).

Have the brakes checked as soon as possible for broken or worn parts.

Good luck on this repair.
