This is usually one of two things. Either the hubs/studs have become rusted to the inside of the drum, or the shoes have made a circle bigger than the inside edge of the drum. If the drum is loose but will just not pull off, the shoes are in the way and you need to adjust them down a bit. Look for a small adjusting slot near the bleeder nipple. If the drum is not loose then you have the rusted solid situation; I have seen folks repeatedly squirt WD40 or some non flammable substitute around the stud holes, apply some heat and ping with a hammer until it loosens. Myself I like to put a big old drum puller on it, tighten it until I warp the drums and then buy new ones!

SOURCE: rear brake drum removal 1992 mercury tracer

Yes. and than the drum will come off. You will find that it will not move at first so take a hammer and tap, not slam, around the edge of the drum to brake the rust. It you have difficulty removing the 2 screws don't strip the heads. Take your screw driver and put it in the slot than tip it at an angle and hit the end with a hammer to apply force sideways to the screw. This will, in most cases, brake the rust and permit the screw to turn.

How to adjust brakes on 1993 mercury tracer ?


Drum brakes are self adjusting. Every time you put on the brakes while backing up, they tighten. If you just replaced the shoes, just do this a bunch of times and they will tighter themselves

I have a 1993 Mercury Topaz that I just bought, and the drivers side seat will not move forward, it will go in all other directions, but won't move forward...any suggestions?


There are 3 electric motors on the seat. One is forward and back, one is front up and down, and one is rear up and down. The switch changes the polarity back and forth to achieve the proper movement. I think the wire color for the forward and back motor is yellow with a white tracer and red with a white tracer. so if the switch gives the motor positive voltage to the yellow with a white tracer and grounds the red with a white tracer the seat moves forward. If the switch gives the red with a white tracer positive and the yellow with a white tracer ground the seat moves back. (or the other way around). So we can safely say it is in the switch.
Good luck and God Bless
