With a small flat head screw driver at the back of brakes there should be a adjusment nut turn one and half turns and it should bring in the shoes if the drum to loose turn it the other way the drum shold just slide on when the drum is on try spinning the drum if spins freely adjust untill you feel binding and just slacking off a bit

I have a focus lx 2000. One of my rear drum brakes,'s bearings went. I got a scrapyard full drum unit, but it doesn't have ABS. Can I take sensor ring out of existing bearing unit and put it


Maybe, but the bearings are also removable. You could just swap out the bearings and continue to use your hub if there is nothing wrong with your hub and drum.

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

I have a 2002 ford focus and I cant get the rear drum off the back


IF IT IS DRUM BRAKES,YOU WILL HAVE TO GO BEHIND THE REAR DRUM AND ADJUST THE BRAKES TO ALLOW YOU TO REMOVE DRUM,PROBABLY A SPRING OR A ADJUSTER IS HUNG UP,IF YOU STILL CAN'T YOU WILL HAVE TO PRY THE DRUM OFF WITH A PRY BAR,ONCE YOU HAVE IT OFF REPLACE ALL HARDWARE AND SHOES.

How do you take out the rear drums out of a 2002 ford focus zx3 i took out the four nuts in the middle of drum and still didnt come out


You may have to loosen the brake shoes. And also "bang" on the drum with a small sledge hammer. Generally the will be rusted on and may require a good amount of force.
