SOURCE: Can't remove rear brake drums, even after

Trying to heat the center will not work, because there is too much mass.
It was just the lug bolts that are supposed to hold it on.
You could unadjust the brakes through the rubber covered plugged hole in the backing plate. But if it turns and you have not got it to move at all, that is probably not the problem. It is probably just rust along the ring that positions the drum on the axle.
Just spray it with WD 40 and whack it continually with a hammer. The ringing vibration will work the solvent in, and it will eventually fall right off. Hitting inward around the ring near where the axle comes through, is the most effective.

The vibration is caused by the rotors being warped. Remove the front tires and check the front brake pads. Replace if needed. This is a pretty straight forward job. The rotors are "fall off" rotors and you won't need anything special tool wise.

I have a 2003 saturn vue that i just replaced the rear brakes and turned the drums on. Now i'm having problems with them clicking when i aply them to stop.There is no problem stoping


Remove drums and inspect the resurfacing job. If it looks like a record they resurfaced them on too fast of a cut , or out of round . If there isn't enough metal on drum to resurface again time for new drums.

2006 Satrun Vue, experiencing a vibration wehn brakes are applied and then when brakes released a bit of vibration is felt at take of as well. The front rotors were replaced and turned since we have owned...


I would check the rear brakes drums, they may need to be turned. The front rotors may have warped again, with turning the rotors, it removes metal from the rotor which leaves the rotor with less metal to dissipate heat, and the rotor will warp again when they get hot.

I have a 2006 saturn vue v6. making a loud noise in the front. what is it? :)


Thats a vague problem description.
could be brakes, suspension, drive train.

If it's a scary sound get some body to check it out, because a failed suspension or brake problem is dangerous

Can't remove rear brake drums, even after heating the center with a torch. Is there something else holding the drum on? This is a 2006 Saturn Vue.
