Run the adjusters backward first so the shoes are moved away from the drum. Look on the studs to see if there are thin metal keepers on the threads. If you find one, remove it. Squirt rust penetrating oil where the axle flange meets the drum. Allow it time to work, then take a 3 lb sledge hammer and start tapping the drum near the studs without hitting one. Give it a good whack to break it loose from the axle flange. If it' really stuck on, use an acetylene torch to apply heat around the flat areas near the studs. If none of these steps work, there are drum pullers you can rent to do the job.

Brake drum removeal and size


The maximum machining dimension is cast into the surface of the drum. On disc brakes it is cast into the rotor. Using that information you can determine the correct shoes/pads for you vehicle.

To remove the drums you simply have to remove the wheel. If the drums have never been off before remove and discard the sheet metal nuts that are over the wheel studs. They are only there to hold the drums from falling off during assembly. After that you can pry on both sides with prybars or large screwdrivers against the drum backing plate to work the drum off. I might take some effort if the shoes have worn a groove into the drums.

How do you remove the rear brake drums


  1. Remove the lug nuts and the wheel.
    1. One way to remove the drum is to tap the drum lightly with a mallet to free the drum if resistance is felt. Sometimes brake drums are stubborn. If the drum is difficult to remove, perform the following:
    1. Insert the end of a bent wire (a coat hanger will do nicely) through the hole in the brake drum and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster.
    2. Reduce the brake shoe adjustment by turning the adjuster bolt with a brake adjuster tool. The drum should now be loose enough to remove without much effort.

      The Brake Adjustment can be access on Rear of the BackPlate !

    The rear drum wont come off as i would expect


    Yes, Undo the 32mm nut, first. And, don't get the bearings dirty with dust from the brake drums, or , if you do, replace the inner and outer bearings with new greased up ones.prev.gif next.gif REAR DRUM BRAKES Brake Drums REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
    Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.

    3. On vehicles without rear bearing hub, remove the dust cap, cotter pin, nut lock, wheel bearing nut and washer from the spindle. Remove the outer wheel bearing. Remove the drum with the inner wheel bearing from the spindle. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. Remove the grease seal.
    4. If equipped with a rear bearing hub, remove the drum by removing the retainer screws from the drum and pulling the drum from the hub assembly. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. To install:
    5. On vehicles equipped without rear bearing hub, lubricate and install the inner wheel bearing. Install a new grease seal. Install the drum to the spindle. Lubricate and install the outer wheel bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the bearing preload following the procedure outlined in the "Rear Wheel Bearing'' of this section. When the bearing preload is properly set, install the nut lock and a new cotter pin. Install the grease cap.

    1990 626 Mazda rear drum brakes


    This "large nut" you are talking about is holding a drum. Usually over him is a cover. Use big screwdriver and hammer to remove cover, gently strike from all sides, and when you remove it you will approach to a big nut. Pay attention that under the drum is a whole breaks sistem. After you remove the nut gently strike from the rear, from all sides (left, right, up and down). Drum will fall off.
