    My problem is that to my knowledge, the brake adjustment is correct, also the parking brake cable doesn't seem to be slightly engaged or anything, the shoes and springs are installed correctly, and the wheel cylinder is fully compressed evenly, however the drum fits over the shoes extremely tight, like to the point of not being able to easily turn the wheel by hand easily, there is a lip on the outer edge of the inside of the drum, also there are some grooves worn into it.

No. The engine needs the signals produced by it to be connected to the computer.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 L L4 I cannot get the rear brake drum to go over the new shoes that I installed I have tried using the adjuster and everything

The last answer is nonsense, make sure the adjuster wheel is all the way back, and the wheel cylinder is free, check that the handbrake lever on the shoe has fully returned to the off position, if it hasn't let the adjustment off on the handbrake cable & check cable is free the lever should now be returned fully in the off position, assuming the shoes are correctly fitted the drum will now go on, after this procedure I remove the drum and manually adjust the star wheel a little at a time until the drum is a sung fit on the shoes, but not too snug that it doesn't turn, once done re adjust handbrake cable to take up slack. Job now done properly

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: question about 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0L L4 Which Brake Shoe goes Where, Longer one front or back and vise versa?

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..

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.
