Longer brake shoe goes in the rear, these are called self energizing brakes, this is how it works, the shorter front shoe forces the longer rear shoe into the drum when the brakes are applied reducing needed pressure to apply the brakes, the rear shoe does most of the braking..

SOURCE: code 17 on a mazda 626 1992 lx what does it mean

The OBD-1 two digits trouble codes listed 'code-17' as:
Oxygen sensor.

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.

Fuel-Filter:
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.

Hi, I recently changed my rear brake shoes and got the drums turned but they are making a thump thump thump sound when I press on the brakes, what could be causing this. 2001 Mazda 626 Lx 2.0L L4


Worn brake hardware, the most common cause is a bad cut on the drums. The shoes might not be riding evenly on the drums or touching rust.

If it has antilock brakes you need a pressurised bleeder unit which pushes brake fluid in from the brake bleeder valve through the pipes and up to the reservoir.

Hi, I managed to get the brake drum on after putting new brake shoes on but now it is very tight and got very hot going just a short distance, why is it doing that? 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 L L4


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
