Exactly that, the brakes locked-up..
What to do to get the drum off: secure the front wheels with blocks, lift the rear axle, take off the wheel, disconnect the brake line to that wheel only, remove the nuts around the middle of drum. remove the two Phillips head screws and put them in the other two holes on the drum, tighten them both a little each at a time and watch the drum slowly slide off. If the blockage puts too much effort on those screws get another ones that can be screwed using a wrench. When the screws go in as far as they can(be careful not to round the holes out), you can use a screw driver to finish prying off the drum, or you can slide hammer it off, You can aid the sliding by pressing on the shoes inward from the moment they are accessible.

Back tire locked up


Make sure you block the front wheels and leave the car in gear before attempting to lift it. Raise the rear of the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Check for a binding parking brake cable for whichever tire is locked up. Remove the wheel that is locked up. If it's got drum brakes, remove the small rubber plug on the inside of the drum and use two flat screwdrivers to loosen the brake adjuster until you can get the drum off. Check the pads and the drum for excessive wear. Check the wheel cylinder for leaks and replace it if necessary. Check all the springs as well. If any of the springs are damaged, replace all of them (spring kits are only a few dollars). If it has disc brakes, check the pads and rotor for excessive wear. Remove the brake caliper and try to compress it (you will probably need a special tool for this, also only a few dollars at any parts store). If it is frozen, you need to replace the caliper. NOTE: if you replace any wheel cylinder or caliper, you will need to bleed the brake system before attempting to drive! Also, what is done to one side of your brakes should be done to the other at the same time. After all, those parts have most likely been on the car for the same amount of time, and it's imperative to keep the braking force even on both sides for safety's sake. Hope this helps.

1993 Ford Taurus drivers side rear wheel cylinder piston is popping out


Your description sounds like the brakes are WAY out of adjustment. The brake cylinders need the shoes to hit the drum or they will do exactly what you describe. I always adjust the shoes until they lock the wheel, then back off until the wheel spins freely, usually 8 to 20 clicks.

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

What tools do i need to repair the rear brakes ? is their also a special tool to pull the rear drum off ?


I don't mean to offend, but if you don't know which tools are required or how to remove the rear drum, the only advice I can give, is to have the brakes serviced by a trained technician. There are certain areas of auto repair that the do-it-yourselfer should not work on. The brake system is one of those. There is too much at stake if the job isn't done right. The safety of you and your family, and the guy in front of you on the highway when traffic comes to a halt at 70mph and your brakes fail. Everybody, me included, would like to think they can fix anything. But there are things best left to the pros. Again, I don't mean to offend, or imply that you are not a good mechanic. It's just the only answer I can give considering the circumstances.

Haveing problem removing rear brake drums off a 1994 Dodge shadow 2.2 liter, do I need a wheel puller?


No special tool needed these things just get stubborn sometimes. The last time I had one stick I had to take a large regular flat head screw driver and use it to pry the drum off a little at a time to do the brakes. Turned out to be the old brakes being adjusted too far out. If your parking brake is engaged it will also lock the drum on because the pads are in contact with the drums.

  1. s2n~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Cover the stabilizer link bolt threads and the nut to prevent boot damage when removing the halfshaft assembly from the vehicle.
    Using a rubber hose approximately 37.5 mm (1.5 in) long, cover the stabilizer link bolt threads and nut.
  1. s2n~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif WARNING: The bolt that retains the upper ball joint to the knuckle is longer and it has fewer threads than the bolt that retains the toe link to the knuckle. Switching these bolts during installation will prevent the pinch arms on the knuckle from correctly retaining the toe link to the knuckle. This may cause the toe link to separate from the knuckle during vehicle operation. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.
    Remove the pinch bolts and disconnect the toe link and upper ball joint from the knuckle.
  1. s2n~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Support the rear suspension upper arm to prevent boot damage when removing the halfshaft assembly from the vehicle.
    Using a wood stick, approximately 450 mm (18 in) long and 25 mm (1 in) wide, support the rear suspension upper arm.
  1. s2n~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not use a hammer to separate the outboard CV joint from the hub. Damage to the threads and internal CV joint components may result.
    s2n~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Once the outboard CV joint separates from the hub the knuckle will continue to pivot until the brake backing plate presses against the suspension lower arm. To prevent damage to the brake backing plate, immediately after separating the outboard CV joint from the hub, rest the knuckle on a cushioned support that is tall enough to keep the backing plate from pressing against the suspension lower arm.
    Separate the outboard CV joint from the hub and rest the knuckle on a cushioned support.

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
