Drum brakes can be adjusted through a slot at the rear of the backing plate normally at the top. Use a flat bladed screw driver or a special tool used top adjust drum brakes. The secret to adjusting drum brakes is to adjust up till the shoes touch the drum and then hit the backing plate several times with a hammer . This allows the shoes to move into the new position and equalise out. Repeat the process until you get an even contact noise when turning the wheel. Pumping the brakes at intervals while adjusting also helps centralise the shoes into position

I have a gq nissan patrol and only the front brakes are working


you will need to see if a) there is enough fluid in the system, b) that the fluid is getting to the rear, and c) there is not a mechanical issue at the rear itself.

A) open and see if the reservoir is full to the line on the side
B) check that the fluid is getting back there by cracking the lines open, starting from the back and working your way forward. (also look for cracked or leaking soft hoses while you are at it) <sometimes a very hard stop or leak can make the proportioning valve stick shut ( a safety feature to ensure that you still have SOME brakes)>
C) make sure that the rear brake assembly is still OK (good shoes, wheel cylinder(s) are working, drums not too eaten up, hardware not broken/ stuck/ missing)

How do you fix spongt brakes?


quite easy ,remove the rear brake drums and clean dust out then rub down the lip on the edge of the brake drum with a angle grinder ,adjust rear brake auto adjusters manually so the drum just slides on and the shoes can be heard to drag ,then try the brakes and they should be hard and firm if still a bit spongey then try bleeding the brakes and then leave something on the brake pedal to hold them down and leave overnight and they should then be perfect

Any trick to removing rear brake drum on an 86 Nissan P/U?


Sometimes brake drums will develope a ridge on the edge of the drum from the brake shoes wearing into the drum. There is usually an slotted access hole in the backing plate that you can use a screwdriver or brake tool to adjust the "star" adjuster wheel to allow the shoes to move inboard enough to get the drum off.

98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car. Rear brakes okay, adjusted cable to 3 clicks. What am I looking for?


If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.

The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.

The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.

Those are the things you need to look for.

How does the rear brake drum come off of a 96 nissan pickup?


Removing the rear brake drums vary little from one vehicle to the next.First,loosen the lugs on the rear wheels,release the hand brake, block the front wheels,jack up the rear and use jackstands.Then remove the rear wheels.Looking at the drum after the wheels have been removed, you will notice two threaded holes one on each side of the axle flange.Give the brake drum a smart rap or two with a plastic mallet or piece of wood and spray the flange w/ WD 40 or brake parts cleaner.Obtain a bolt with the exact size and thread to fit the hole. I found it useful to "borrow" such bolt from around the work area-My favorite is the one fastening a cable or a hoseclamp to the differential.If that don't fit, look around under the hood:there's one there you can use.Thread the bolt into the hole alternating from one hole to the other.The bolt pushes the drum against a flange inside and removes the drum.After work, adjust the star wheel brake adjuster so that the drum turns with hand push with a little drag.

Replace rear brake shoes on 1999 nissan altima and now the drum will not fit back on.


if the orginal drums there might be a lip of rust and metal buildup that needs to be cleaned off. try also backing the adjuster off to allow the drum to go over the shoes, do the shoes look the same as the old ones, just more materal? Don't forget to adjust the shoes back to the drum so you gte a good pedal feel, and the rear brakes will work properly

Adjust rear brakes 1995 Nissan Pathfinder 4WD


if they are disk brakes, they are not adjustable. if they are drums they should auto adjust. if they are not, then there is a problem that you have to pull the tire, then the drum, to diagnose it. you may have to disassemble the brake shoes and springs, and clean and lube the self adjusters
