This is a common problem. Remove the drums, and clean out the brake dust with brake cleaner and readjust the brakes.

    When you have the drums off, check for leaking wheel cylinders.

Why does my 2006 commander rear brake grab when turning?


hi, if the grab is while braking, there may be an uneven piston to pad/drum wear or adjustment -- check brake assembly and pressure equalizers on the lines -- they put equal hydrolic pressure to both wheels - if one is bad, that will also cause problem of grab

Rear drum brakes


Typical cavalier problem James,
First thing is to get drums off, the sandpaper the brake shoes,you'll see at the top and bottom of each shoe the only part of the shoes being used.I recommend picking up a new set of drums from Auto Zone,they are around $20.00 each. Now the last thing is back off the emergency adjuster about 5 threads, then you can adjust your drum brakes.

I HAVE A 1998 CHEVY CAVALIER. I JUST REPLACED THE BRAKE BOOSTER, MASTER CYLINDER AND ABS BOX AND BACK DRUM BRAKES. WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKE IT GIVES A CLICKING NOISE AND GRABS REAL BAD ON BACK RIGHT SIDE....


manually adjust the rear brakes up to just touching the drums the drums .en turning the drum a very slight scrape would be about right. Adjust both sides evenly. I hope that you assembled the brake shoes correctly

How to take apart rear brake drum in 1950 plymouth


The above directions are WRONG!!!

The rear drums on a 1950 Plymouth are held in place by a large nut and a taper on the axle. Therefore after removing the axle nut you will need a drum puller to get the drum off of the axle. Do not try to use a finger style gear puller, you will not be able to get the fingers behind the drum.

PROBLEM WITH REAR BRAKES GRABBING AND LOCKING WAS PRESENT PRIOR TO ME REPLACING ALL PARTS AS A PROCESS OF ELIMINATION. REAR DRUMS SPIN FREELY SO THERE IS PLENTY OF CLEARANCE. I'M OPEN FOR IDEAS


Hi, it is possible there is too much clearance. Some things that can cause grabbing are hydraulic oil leaking from wheel brake cylinder, excessive brake lining dust, or shoes not adjusted up to the drum. Your self-adjusters should be pulling the shoes up to the drum whenever you backup, but one or both may not be adjusting. You can manually adjust them if that is the case. Please inspect and check these items, and let me know if you have any questions.

My brakes grab on my 2000 jeep cherokee classic.


you will need to have the brakes checked, you may have a bad hose or sticking caliper, also if you have drum rear brakes then the rear drums may be out of round, this is if its the rear brakes that are grabbing, if it is then you may just need the drums resurfaced and also make sure theres no gear oil or brake fluid on the shoes. if the fronts are grabbing then you may have a bad brake hose or a bad caliper.
