I can't get the drums off the back of my 2001 Pontiac Sunfire, to do a brake job.


Hello first of all !!


Well here is the thing brake drums tend to rust to the hub assembly because they dont really get changed alot. That being said tapping it with a hammer will not work you will need to beat it fairly hard.

You need to start at the top and keep hitting around the drum it will wiggle free i looked at the picture of the brake drum and it does not seem you need to remove bearinings the large nut in the center of the dust cap.

But the picture is not very descriptive you may need to remove the large nut and slide it out.

Hope it helps if so please leave me some feedback thanks god bless

Everytime i use the brakes on my 2000 sunfire i here a loud knocking noise in the rear.


you probably have a shoe that has become dislodged from it's anchor point, you need to remove the wheels and pop the drums off to visually inspect the brakes.

Do i have to adjust down the brake adjusters on drum brakes for a pontiac sunfire


Are they dragging ... are you replacing the shoes ... The only time that you need to back off an adjuster is to replace the shoes as far as I am aware.

I can't remove the rear brake drums off my 2005 pontiac sunfire, I think because i let the bad brakes go too long and they grooved into the drums, so how do i get the drums off now/


I do brakes on these all the time.On all of the brake drums after some time they get hard to remove since the drum rusts to the axleor bearing hub. When I remove the wheel and the clips that usually come from the factory around a couple of the studs I apply heat to the drum and spin the hub.9A small propane torch will suffice since it doesn't require a lot of heat. As it warms up the drum expands and ships off the hub. Do not heat the hub or it will grow with the drum. When warm it will tap off or a light pry from the back of the drum. Without heat I cannot remove 90% of these drums.

2002 Pontiac Sunfire rear brakes locking when cold???


Yes i fixed the problem i had to remove my backing plate and grind them smoth where the brake shoes rub on them then. I put some high temp brake grease between the shoes and the backing plate works great now!!! seems like the backing plate gets grided down by the metal from the brake shoes throug the years.. You will see the metal on the backing plate will have some ridges on them so make sure you grind them smoth
