The rear drum wont come off as i would expect

I have a hyundai excell 91 model, the rear drum wont bang off as iv'e been told, it appears that the axle nut holds it together, should i be trying to undo that 32mm nut or continue banging away on the drum hoping it will give way eventually? any hints?

    Once The Two Screws Have Been Removed You Need To Back The Brake Shoe Adjusters All The Way Off To Release The Brake Drums .You Do Not Need To Remove Hub. The Drum Should Come Off By Hand No Banging.

Yes, Undo the 32mm nut, first. And, don't get the bearings dirty with dust from the brake drums, or , if you do, replace the inner and outer bearings with new greased up ones.the rear drum wont come off as i would expect - prev.gif next.gif REAR DRUM BRAKES Brake Drums REMOVAL & INSTALLATION CAUTION
Brake linings contain asbestos. Asbestos is a known cancer-causing agent. When working on brakes, remember that the dust which accumulates on the brake parts and/or in the drum contains asbestos. Always wear a protective face covering, such as a painter's mask, when working on the brakes. NEVER blow the dust from the brakes or drum.

  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. On vehicles without rear bearing hub, remove the dust cap, cotter pin, nut lock, wheel bearing nut and washer from the spindle. Remove the outer wheel bearing. Remove the drum with the inner wheel bearing from the spindle. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. Remove the grease seal.
  4. If equipped with a rear bearing hub, remove the drum by removing the retainer screws from the drum and pulling the drum from the hub assembly. If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear of the backing plate and push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel. Rotate the star wheel to retract the shoes. To install:
  5. On vehicles equipped without rear bearing hub, lubricate and install the inner wheel bearing. Install a new grease seal. Install the drum to the spindle. Lubricate and install the outer wheel bearing, washer and nut. Adjust the bearing preload following the procedure outlined in the "Rear Wheel Bearing'' of this section. When the bearing preload is properly set, install the nut lock and a new cotter pin. Install the grease cap.
  6. On vehicles with rear bearing hub, install the brake drum to the hub assembly and install the retaining screws.
  7. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Adjust the rear brakes as required.
  8. Apply the brakes until a firm pedal is obtained, prior to moving the vehicle.

If Those 2 Screws Are Not Fully Seated In The Drum The Rim Could Be Damaged Especially If Installed With Air Wrench. Either Fully Tighten The Screws Or Remove Them. The Rim Itself Will Retain The Drum To The Hub

The rear brake drums are drum brakes on the 94 excel. The Excel uses the front brakes the most, so are you sure you need to replace the rear brakes?

I have a 1995 Hyundai excel, and brake fluid is coming out of rear brake. I haven't taken wheel yet to see if I can fix it. But looking underneath car I can see Floyd coming out of rear drum housing. Is...


If you have rear brake drums, (I think you do) it will be a wheel cylinder, or a broken brake line. The wheel cylinder is inside of the drum, and the line that goes to it will be on the inboard side.
Fixable by a novice? Hard to say, as you need to be able to bleed the brakes, after replacing the part.

How do i remove the brake drum from a 1992 hyundai excel?


dear friend-the reason why you can not remove the drum is that the shoe is inbedded into the drum,there is a ridge in the drum holding the drum and shoe together,try and release the brake,if not you will have to apply force to remove drum,it might brake the spring clips but that can be replaced,good luck.

I want to chang the rear brake ! so how do i get to the brake or what do i need to get the dum off !


Remove the rear wheel. Check the studs to see if it has any retaining rings on them. If they do, pry them off with a small screwdriver.
Now take a hammer and bang the drum to loosen it off the axel flange and pull the drum off.

Squeaky brake when cold


If your rear brakes are making the noise take off the rear drums and spray some brake clean in there on both shoes and the drum let all parts dry which wont take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute or two depending on the brake clean also if you want you can have someone take a piece of emry cloth to your front rotors and scuff them up a bit with about 80 to 100 grit emry and spray them and the pads off with brake clean let it dry to you can emry the pads to this will get most if not all the glaze on pads and rotors.

Anchorage points in Hyundai Excel 98


I have found the anchor points on my car, and would suggest they would be in the same place on yours. Mine are on the inside back panel, as in the panel behind the rear break lights / indicators etc, inside the boot. You should see, in amongst the other irregular shaped holes, three holes into what appears to be more solid parts of the plate. They are positioned one behind each of the 3 rear seat positions to allow you to choose where you are placing your seat. The anchor just screws directly into these holes.
