No. I just replaced my rear drums. Just a "light" tapping with a hammer on the vehicle side of the drums and they should come loose.

How to take of brake drum off on 1997 oldsmobile achieva


After the wheel and tire are removed, rare back with a big hammer and hit the brake drum on the corner, putting blaster ( Pentrating oil ) around the hub center and the studs, will help too. You may need to hit it very hard and many times. once moving and it still won't come off or it won't even turn, your going to have to release the brake, The parking brake must be off and it's possible that now you have it jacked up you wisely put the brake on, but it has to be off to remove the drum, ( choulk the wheels that are on the ground before releasing the brake) Some drums have 8MM threaded bolt holes in them that let you thread a bolt into the hole and as you tighten it the drum is pulled off, Not all drums have these holes made in them.

1989 chevy 3500 4x4 454 rear brake drum removal. Does the axle bolts need to be removed


Can you tell me which type of axle you have?

Full Floating Axles To remove the drums from full floating rear axles, use the Axle Shaft Removal & Installation procedure in Section 7. Full floating rear axles can readily be identified by the bearing housing protruding through the center of the wheel.


Semi-Floating Axles
  1. Raise and support the rear end on jack stands.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Pull the drum from the brake assembly. If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so that the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.

You may have to back off the automatic adjuster before you can pull the drum from the brake assembly

To install, reverse the removal procedure.

Can't remove rear hub to get at brakes


You may have to heat the outer part of the hub to get this off. For some reason, the car companies seem to consider the rear axle components as 'throwaway'. Too much trouble to use a large nut and cotter pin to hold the wheel on and allow the bearings to be greased. We had a Dodge Caravan do this and the mechanic had a terrible time getting it off!

Rear Drum Brake Install


Removal & Installation
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the drum retaining nuts, if equipped, and remove the brake drum.
If the drum will not come off, pry the rubber plug from the backing plate. Insert a narrow rod through the hole in the backing plate and disengage the adjusting lever from the adjusting screw. While holding the adjustment lever away from the screw, back off the adjusting screw with a brake adjusting tool. Be careful not damage the notches in the adjusting screw or the self-adjusting mechanism will not function properly.
  1. Inspect the brake drum for scoring and wear. Replace or machine as necessary. If machining, observe the maximum diameter specification.
To install:
  1. If a new drum is being installed, remove the protective coating from the drum using brake cleaner. Sand the drum lightly and wipe with a cloth soaked in denatured alcohol.
  2. Adjust the brake shoes according to the procedure in this Section.
  3. Install the brake drum and the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Lower the vehicle.

The 2 links are diagrams for shoe placement and the automatic brake adjuster.
Be sure to have the drums turned before installing the brake shoes.

Hope this answers your question. Best of luck on your repair.

Below is a description of how to replace the rear brake shoes. You didn't mention if it is 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive.
Hope this helps.
Regards,

Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and remove the wheel.
  3. Mark the relationship of the drum to the hub and pull the drum from the brake assembly.

Back drum brakes


Remove the rubber plug at the back of the backing plate. Take a brake adjusting tool or screw driver through the hole and turn(pry) the brake adjuster to back off the brake shoes. There is a ridge worn in to the brake drum and that is keeping the brake drum on, even if you can wiggle it.
