The first solution is true however sometimes a ridge is present on the inside of the drum and you must after hitting it with asmall sledge hammer being careful not to accidentally hit the studs for the lug nuts rotate the drum while pulling outward this can be very physically challenging so be prepared.

Usually on rear drum brakes you have to give them a good hit with a 3lb sledge hammer and rotate the drum as you hit it and it will loosen up after a full rotation or two. You actually have to hit it pretty good though.

I have a 2005 1500 Z71 4x4 and I can't get the passanger rear brake drum off...Is there something special about getting the drum to come off? It started leaking fluid this morning and thus I have no...

the fluid is brake fluid frond the wheel cylinder...the reason why u cant get the drum off is either a rust lip on the drum or the rear brake shoes have ground into the brake drum...u need to adjust the self adjusting star wheel inward to loosen the rear shoes allowing the drum to be removed...on the back side of the drum is what is called a backing plate there will be a oval hole with a rubber plug in it remove it an use a brake spoon to de adjust the rear shoes by turning the brake spoon up ..if u dont have the oval hole u will need to cut it out of the backing plate there may be 2 oval stamps in the backing plate, cut out the one that is on the right when u r looking at the backing plate

2005 chevrolet silverado crew cab with rear drum drakes,noise in rear brakes just before full stop,have new shoes and turned drums ....chuch 8249

usually this is caused by moisture rust build up in the drum since they dont breath well. do you not drive alot or is it wet there? best chance at a remedy is to periodicly remove drum and spray out w solvent. a film of grease on the axle flange and the drum hub helps too. make sure whell cylinder is not seizing or e-brake sticking causing them to drag,heat up, and bake the lining which will make them sing a high pich tune
