Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
The drums have a "ridge" on the inside of the metal NOT worn off by the shoes.The shoes have expanded to their clearance to the worn drum The self adjuster wheel will need to be turned back to make the diameter of the shoes smaller. I don't remember a "window" at the rear of the drum (where in the old days we put in a flat "screwdriver" adjuster and rotated the wheel to adjust the shoes). You may have to force the drum off (and replace it).
