Question about Mazda Cars & Trucks
Make sure that the automatic adjuster is adjusted all the way off
check that the replacement shoes were not over sized
adjust hand brake so that the shoes are free of the drum
the shoes will not wear in as they last for years so if you cannot get the drum to spin freely after correct adjustment, take it to a brake shop and have your work inspected for correct assembly
you should have replaced both left and right brakes so what did you do to one side that didn't have a problem

Hi there... There are a couple possibilities for this to happen. the brakes might not be adjusted properly therefore the shoes have to travel further in order to put pressure on the drum. exessive travel can cause binding of the shoes and won't release properly. The shoes my have been installed backwards ( ie front shoe in the back and back shoe in the front) the rear shoe is normally longer and if put in backwards can cause binding. the other possibility is that you may have a sticky wheel cylinder so when you release the brakes the cylinder piston will not retract. Hope this helps you out

The OBD-1 two digits trouble codes listed 'code-17' as:
This means that the fuel and ignition systems performance are in need of attention.
1.Distributor Cap: remove the 3-bolts holding the distriboutr to its body.
2. Inspect the distributor cap for cracks, and the roror-button is not worn or broken.
3. Inspect the distributor-cap terminals are not corroded or charred. Replace if charred. Clean them out if corroded.
4. Check the distributor-rotor for cracks or corrosion on its tip, and lesser spring tension.
Replace as necessary.
5. Reverse steps 1-4 to re-install distributor cap. Be sure to remove and replace the plug wires from the old distributor-cap to the new distributor-cap one-by-one. If not, the engine would not run.
1. Undo the top clips holding the fuel-filter hose, and undo the lower clips also.
2. Take out the fuel-filter from its mount.
3. Replace the fuel filter as necessary.(please not the way it was mounted) Reverse removal for installation.

Testimonial: "great help"
Hi, When you adjust them they should have a light drag as the wheel spins. The E brake should be the same on both sides. As for the noise I hope you bought the OE (original equipment) brake shoes. The other brands will squeal. Good Luck
