Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo
Posted by Anonymous on
Remove the tire, and on the back of the backing plate, you will see a slot which may or may not have a rubber plug in it. Look inside, and you will see a wheel with teeth on it. Using a screwdriver, pry up or down on this wheel to loosen it. If the drum quits turning, then you're tightening it. Once it's loosened enough, the drum will pull right off. Often times, the brakes are worn enough that the drum will come off anyways. On occasion, especially if it's been sitting a long time, the drum may require a couple of blows from a rubber hammer, or a regular hammer using a block of wood to deaden it if you don't have a rubber hammer in order to break the rust loose. You use this same method for rear wheel drive GM vehicles all the way up to now that utilize drum brakes.
