SOURCE: rear drum removal 1998 ford escort

Hi,
Removing the drums can be a little difficult if they are really worn and. have a large lip inside where the brake shoes have worn them down.
Anyway here goes, loosen wheel nut/s slightly, raise the car and make safe by using an axle stand or similar then lower it so the wheel is off the ground.
Remove all nut/s and take wheel to one side, you'll then see the whole of the drum, there should be 1 or 2 retaining Philips type screws between the locating holes for the wheel, these need to be removed possibly with an impact screwdriver if too tight.
Once screws are out release the hand brake, hopefully the drum will rotate, try waggling it from side to side along it circumference pulling the drum towards you, it may move a few mm then lock? try using a very heavy rubber mallet to thump the outside edge of the drum whilst turning it. This hopefully will loosen the brake shoes holding the drum on you may need to keep doing this for a good while.
If you have no success then try carefully doing the same with a copper/hide hammer. Still no joy then possibly the lip inside is too great meaning the drums maybe beyond their wear limit so a good belt with a heavy lump hammer is the only way.
I hope this helped? please press the Blue button if happy with my FREE Efforts, Thank You!

47,880 miles, needs front ransmission mount $300 parts & labor also needs left outer tie rod end $240 parts & labor. Which is most important to repair first-- I have saved $200.Car still holding...


The tie rod end is more important of the 2 because of safety. But according to prices, I would shop around other shops. $300 sounds high for trans mount. Just for kicks, call a parts store and ask for outer tie rod and trans mount for '88 escort or you can even check online Advance, autozone both have good inline stores. I bet you'll find "your quoted shop" has very inflated prices.

Where do I store the spare tire on a 1998 Ford Explorer? In the cargo area or does it go underneath? Thanks.


The spare tire is stored under the vehicle. There's a hole just above the license plate you insert the extended end of the jack handle into to lower and raise the spare tire. The jack and handle are stowed in the drivers side rear (just inside the rear hatch).
You can go to this FREE Ford website to view or download the users manual for this vehicle for a diagram if needed.

My car keeps pulling to the right its a ford escort est 1998


You need to get an alignment, and i think you will find that some of your front end parts, such as ball joints and tie rod ends, have reached the end of their service life and will need to be replaced before an alignment can be done.
