Depending on how wore down shoes are or self adjuster has pushed shoes out, you should be able to hit the face of drum with a hammer several tiems and it break loose to be removed.

SOURCE: 2005 chevrolet silverado crew cab with rear drum

usually this is caused by moisture rust build up in the drum since they dont breath well. do you not drive alot or is it wet there? best chance at a remedy is to periodicly remove drum and spray out w solvent. a film of grease on the axle flange and the drum hub helps too. make sure whell cylinder is not seizing or e-brake sticking causing them to drag,heat up, and bake the lining which will make them sing a high pich tune

Rear drum brakes stuck on 1991 chevy silverado

Its likely you eighter lose a hold down spring for the shoe or poped a wheel cylinder pistion out so it can't return properly Your brake shoes in eighter case are spend this caused the problem Try to apply the parking brake you may be able to lossen it up but the rear brakes need to be replaced . To get the drum off if the parking brake dosn't work you will need to look at the back of the rear brake plate inside of the tire where the brake lines hook up. There will be a rubber plug at the bottom of the plate remove it inside there is a part called a star wheel you can turn it with a stright head screw driver . This will release the tenistion on the shoes and allow you to remove the brake drums . But keep in mind that one of the star wheels turns right handed and the other turns left handed so if it feels like its is getting tighter your turning the wheel the wrong way it should get easyer to turn Good luck you need new rear brakes

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.

This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

I have a 2005 chevy silverado with drum rear brakes and it seems like i'm only useing my front brakes even though i adjust them it seems like they won't stay to wear i feel it in the brake pedal.....also...

The rear brakes normally only account for about 25% of your braking power. Due to engine weight being over the front wheels, and the way that the front settles down when braking, it's proportioned that way to get the best braking performance, especially in a pickup. Unless you change the proportioning valve, the amount of braking that the rear wheels do will not change. As for the brake dust, some types of pads do that more than others, and with disk brakes, this is normal.

2005 chevy silverado 1500 clunk in rear when i take off from a stop

I have the same problem with my 05 with 75,000 miles. With mine brake dust builds up in rear drums and causes sticking. Remove rear wheels and drums and clean everything with brake clean. I do it every 12 to 16 months and solves the problem.

Brake Ajustment on a 1998 Chevy 1500

The rear drum style brakes can be adjusted by removing the rubber plug on the back of the plate, and using a brake tool or flathead you can turn the "star wheel" adjuster to move the shoes closer or further from the drum.

hope this helps! please rate!
