Rear break drum is stuck on, will not come off on 2000 Toyota 4runner

Toyota brake drums have two threaded holes in them. Screw in two bolts until you feel resistance. Shoot rust penetrating oil into the stud areas and all around the center hub. Let it soak for a while. Then tighten the two bolts equally and smack the center of the drum with a hammer. Rotate. Tighten. Shot with more penetrant and smack. It'll come loose.

What tools do i need to repair the rear brakes ? is their also a special tool to pull the rear drum off ?

I don't mean to offend, but if you don't know which tools are required or how to remove the rear drum, the only advice I can give, is to have the brakes serviced by a trained technician. There are certain areas of auto repair that the do-it-yourselfer should not work on. The brake system is one of those. There is too much at stake if the job isn't done right. The safety of you and your family, and the guy in front of you on the highway when traffic comes to a halt at 70mph and your brakes fail. Everybody, me included, would like to think they can fix anything. But there are things best left to the pros. Again, I don't mean to offend, or imply that you are not a good mechanic. It's just the only answer I can give considering the circumstances.

Have hard time taking off the brake drum to replace rear brakes on 2006 chevy silverado what neeeds to done what wrenches to use?

No special tools.
Spray some WD-40 or similar penetrating fluid on the centre of the drum where the end of the axle comes through, and around the wheel studs as rust will cause binding on these points.
Some models have a small (phillips head) retaining screw to keep the drum in place, make sure you remove it if there is one.
Release the parking brake.
Slack off the parking brake cable. Following the cable from the inside of the drum will lead you to the adjusting nuts, usually at the centre of the vehicle.
Tap on the outer edge of the drum with a hammer while turning it. On worn drums a ridge has been carved into the edge of the drum where the shoes press against it, causing the shoe to get stuck on this ridge and the drum wont come off. To make sure there is no residual pressure in the lines keeping the shoes expanded, open one of the bleed nipples on the drum.If none of this works get a bigger hammer.The drum should just slide off else it is stuck on the shoes or corroded onto the axle.

Is there a trick to removing rear brake drums on a 2004 corolla besides releasing the parking brake and loosening the adjuster star wheel?

The only trick is banging it off. Drums are known to be "frozen" on or stuck. Honestly, the only way to get them off when they are stuck is to carefully hammer it off. Below is what is required to remove and replace the drum....and a picture of your system:

Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Remove the wheels.
  3. Remove the brake drum from the axle hub.
To install:
  1. Install the brake drum.
  2. Install the rear wheels, tighten the wheel lug nuts.

Remove stuck brake drum

you have to get a brake adjusting tool and a screw driver....

put the brake tool in and locate the adjuster wheel, use a screwdriver to release the locking prawl, its tuff but doable.

If there are no access openings to the adjuster, either in the drum or backing plate, then you need to work it off with a few pry bars

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

I need to know how to replace the rear brake drums.

First block the tires on the front of the car, front and rear of the tire. place the transmission in park, do not set the parking brake. Jack up the rear end, use jack stands on the rear. You should loosen the lug nuts on the wheels before jacking up.
With the truck lifted and properly supported, remove the wheels. This will expose the drum. Tap off the drum gently with a light hammer, the drum should pull off. Remove drum, it is a good idea to replace the shoes at the same time. This is done by removing the adjuster, the springs, then replace shoes as removed. Use brake cleaner on new drums before putting on, install the drum same as removed, put on wheel, lower truck and tighten the lug bolts. To adjust, turn star inside the rubber grommet on inside of drum. then you can adjust automatically by placing vehicle in reverse and apply the brakes until snug. This will get you done. Enjoy.

96 toyota tercel rear brake repair Can't get the brake drum off to replace the linings

They tend to get really stuck, especially if they haven't been changed in a while. A few raps with a hammer on all sides will usually get the job done. Best of luck.

Parking brake

That lever is notorous for sticking it. First thing i would do is chauk the wheels and remove the rear tire. Pull the brake drum off and make sure the brake hard ware is not full of dirt and or rusted. It is relitively cheap for a new hard ware kit for toyota. Also when you have the rear drum off it take a hammer and free up the lever and stuck parts. use antisieze on all threads.
