If you are familar with a front brake drum on a rear wheel drive vehicle, the procedure is the same, if you have not seen this in the past it might be wise to have a professional do the job. Brakes are not something you want to take a chance with.

Rear brake locks up at slow speeds on 2001 cavalier


i would have the rear brake limiter mechanism checked first as this device regulates brake pressure so it is equal to both back wheels, if this is ok i'd check that the wheel cylinders aren't sticking and that the brake shoe assembly has been replaced properly

2001 Cavalier passenger rear brake locks up at slow speeds, shakes at higher speeds, mechanics changed drums 3 times, keeps coming back


I think it is time to find an accredited brake specialist . At the best with a hub it may be bad wheel bearings but I consider it a problem with the mechanics and their lack of commitment to fixing your problem

Rear drum brakes


Typical cavalier problem James,
First thing is to get drums off, the sandpaper the brake shoes,you'll see at the top and bottom of each shoe the only part of the shoes being used.I recommend picking up a new set of drums from Auto Zone,they are around $20.00 each. Now the last thing is back off the emergency adjuster about 5 threads, then you can adjust your drum brakes.

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2.2L 4 Cylinder. I will be replacing my rear axle beam relatively soon, and was wondering what size drums and brake shoes i will be needing? I don't know if it...


First of all, you have no rear axle. Are you talking about the subframe or your hubs? As for drum size, I would go with the same size that are coming off. If you want to (and can) go bigger, you just need to make sure they have enough clearance inside your wheels. When ordering parts, you will be asking for: wheel cylinders, shoes, spring kit and drums. Note: the wheel cylinders you will only need to change if you are changing the SIZE of your drums or IF THEY LEAK. To see if they are good, pull your drums, smack your shoes from one side then to the other (using the palms of your hands) then back to center. Pull back the rubber boots and inspect for moisture. If they're dry, don't change the cylinders. If they're wet, they're leaking and need to be replaced. Now, if you do need to replace your wheel cylinder(s), you need to look in behind and assess the condition of the brake line fitting. If it looks rotten beyond all hell, you'll likely be into doing the brake line(s) as well. NOTE: when you actually do get into changin your brakes, do ONE SIDE AT A TIME. Drum brakes can be complex and if you take apart both sides then you have no reference as to how to put them back together!

How do you change rear brakes? There are rear brake drums and i cant get them off, are they rusted on or is there a trick to getting them off?


mcdevito75, The rear drums are on very tight, the time and effort to get them off, really isn"t worth it, and even if you do the remaining brakes could just fall apart. Let your local repair shop handle this job.

The brakes on my 03 Cavalier (rear brakes) freeze up in snow or rain...I check and they don't need replaced but something is seriously wrong with the rear brakes...during dry weather they squeak or squeal.


They may have been installed incorrectly. You may have the drums rusting. Have the drums turned & at least a new hardware kit installed properly. You may also want to change the shoes. Good luck!
