Hi there,

1) With the vehicle jacked up and supported with axle stands, remove the rear wheels.
2) Using an old, thin, flat tip screwdriver and a hammer, remove the dust cap from the brake drum.
3) Using a 1/8" punch and hammer, tap out the lock nut indentation.
4) Using a 30mm, 1/2" drive socket and ratchet, unscrew the lock nut from the axle shaft.
5) Remove the flat washer from the axle shaft.
6) Ensure the hand brake is not applied.
7) Using a soft faced hammer, strike the outside edge of the drum repeatedly and all around while at the same time applying a pulling force on the drum. (This is best accomplished using two people and could take several minutes.) Be persistent!
8) Once the drum has been removed, tap or press out the wheel bearing from the inside out.
9) Clean and re-pack the wheel bearing with grease.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

SOURCE: I Need to adjust the brakes on an Suzuki Swift

Removing the drum could be quite hard, if the drum have not been taken off for quite some time. Firstly, you need to check whether there are any bolts holding the drum.
Then, you need to strike the drum at its shoulder in order to 'pop' the drum out its place. To help with the process, you could spray WD40 around your drum before you strike em'.

Rear wheel bearing


If you have ABS then the wheel bears are not replaceable, and the entire hub needs to be replaced as a unit. The OEM part # is 4340250G11

If you do not have ABS then they are replaceable. The inner bearing is part # 0926225061, and the outer bearing is part # 0926220069.

The rear wheel bearings are pressed in the brake drum with a spacer in between.

Remove the rear brake drum and place it on a work surface.

Tap out the opposite side with a screwdriver/punch and a hammer. (i.e. tap out the inner bearing when the outside of the brake drum is facing you, and tap out the outer bearing when the inside/brae shoe side of the drum is facing you)

Tap in the new bearings making sure that the sealed sides are facing out.

Is it difficult to replace rear brake shoes on a suzuki swift


Brake shoes are in relationship to pads at least 2 or 3 times as difficult. There are many springs and little pieces that you have to deal with, plus you will need some special tools to deal with the springs and retainers. For someone who has never done brake shoes you will be in for a pain in the rear, but if you have patience you can get it done. You can always find the diagram and step by step info online or in a manual (available at most auto parts stores)
Take the wheel and drum off and take a look. If you feel up to the job, take a picture as a reference to where each spring goes.

Brake drum loose but wont come off


Hi,
The representative icons are sometimes confusing on here. It is saying 1994 Suzuki Swift and you are saying 2,000 caravan.
I'm goin with you! ha...
Most vehicles that have drums on the rear have a slot (maybe plugged with a rubber or plastic plug) where when the plug is removed, a "star wheel" adjuster (used to spread the brake shoes) becomes accessible with a tool called a brake spoon. If you rotate the star wheel such that the brake shoe "Spread" is less, the drum should come off. And yes, it is probably the pads catching on a ridge. Getting the drums turned might be in order...
I hope this helps you. Good luck!

Rear brake drum


rear drums usally have to be played with first spray some lubracant (WD40) on the center and around the studs. hit the face of the drum with a hamer in the spaces between the studs (with out hitting the studs) and tap the sides if there is movement then keep trying but if its not getting anywhere after 3 or 4 times you will have to loosen the slack adjuster or cut the anchor (retaining) pins
