Will a rear knuckle w/disc be the same as one w/drum brakes?


Hi Michael, not as I understand it. Discs use brake pads and drums use brake shoes. Pads locate in a caliper and squeeze the disc from both sides. Shoes are held inside the drum and force themselves against the inside of the drum. Hope this helps.

Whot is the differance betwean a rear disc hub and a rear drum hub on a 99 focus


the only difference between a disc and a drum brake is that with a disc brake is that the brake pads are being squeezed into the disc to stop and with a drum brake the brake pads are being pushed on the inside of the drum to stop the vehicle

Drivers side rear wheel wont budge even when driven. How can it be freed up?


Sounds like the emergency brake is frozen. You will have to remove the tire and brake drum to see what is going on. The drum will probably be stuck on due to the problem you are having. You will have to back off the star wheel adjuster to free up the brake shoes and/or release a stuck emergency brake cable. This will take more than a novice so you will probably need to get help. Good luck :O)

Our car has been sitting parked for the past 8 months, today we tried to move it and the back brakes are locked, and the back wheels will not move? What could be the cause of this?


The bracke drum / Hand brake cable is stuck . Try to hammer the rear wheel centre and if the brake drum is stuck it wiill be released .
Also the cable of hand brake is stuck . try puling the hand lever of the hand brake up and down many times this may free it .

I have a 2007 Cobalt with manual transmission. I put the car in 1st, release the hand brake, and 'drive'... the car doesn't move. It has been sticky before after rain (due to rusted brake pads) but this is...


I think you are saying the rear brakes are locked up because of the parking brake is sticking? The few things to check is if the cables are pinched or rusted. The park brake release could be bad, but I havn't ever came across that. Possible rear brakes were so worn they have bonded to the drum. Try and "rock" the car. Release the park brake and 1st to reverse and see it it will get moving. Then check out all of the possible problems above. If the rears are locked up right now you will never get the drums off.

1992 626 Rear Drum stuck


Does it have a dust cap in the center? If so, pry it off and remove the nut. It also might have a reverse thread (check). If it doesn't have the cap, then you might have to cut the drum in half. But I am almost positive that it does have the metal dust cap in the center of the hub/drum. I sincerely hope that this helped you. Let me know how things went. I'll still be here if you need me.

I cannot get the rear brake drums off. i have tried tapping with a hammer, but will not budge. I there anything holding the drum on other than pad pressure?


Is the emergency brake on? If it is then release the E-brake. If the e-brake is not on then contunue to tap around the drum it will brake loose after awhile. Sometimes when rear brake drums get to much brake dust, and the brakes get hot it kind of welds itself on. Tap the center a few times, after making sure the ebrake is not on

Emergency brake pad stuck 93 Camry


Its A Rear Tire Id Guess Its Gotta Be A Problem With The Brakes And Not The Brake Pad. I Would Recommend Taking It To A Mechanic If Thats Not An Option Get The Book. Jack Up The Vehicle And Remove The Suspicious Tire. Mark One Spot On The Drum And One Spot On The Center Hub. Then Check The Inside Of The Drum Once Removed And Inspect it Also Check Your Brake Pads. Not Many People Know That Drum Pads Release Outward Instead Of Inward Like Disc Brakes. Hopefully This Will Help You
