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.

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

The brakes on my 03 Cavalier (rear brakes) freeze up in snow or rain...I check and they don't need replaced but something is seriously wrong with the rear brakes...during dry weather they squeak or squeal.


They may have been installed incorrectly. You may have the drums rusting. Have the drums turned & at least a new hardware kit installed properly. You may also want to change the shoes. Good luck!

My rear drum brakes are working too much


Back off the adjusters so the shoes barely touch the drums. Also are the shoes installed correctly. Get a diagram of the proper way to install the shoes,i.e. At a parts store or dealer. Good luck!

Rear brake locks up after application. New drums, recent shoes and hardware.


The problem could be your brake shoe are in the wrong location, Drum brakes use two different size shoe on the front and back of the drum assembly. Check it if it correct

I have a 2001 cavalier and the rear brakes keep locking up. we've replaced the master cylinder, proportioning valve, pads, rotors, hardware, shoes, drums, and right front hub bearing. got any ideas on...


Was this problem there before you changed the Brake shoes. The cavalier has shoes on the rear.
It seems like the leaning show the SHORT one is not facing the front of the car where it should be. If you check the shoes one is shorter than the other in a set. Hope this works. Some model year Cavalier also had a problem with the Backing plate the plate the shoes attaches to.
