Easiest would be to look at the right side wheel (assuming it's not been dismantled as yet) Take note of which spring goes where but also in which direction. ie if the long end of the spring is pointing to the front of the car on the RH side, then the same spring on the LH side of the car should also be pointing forward. The trick to shoe assembly is to put the springs on before you fit the shoes to the housing. Fit the first shoe to the parking brake cable, then fit it to the housing. Now attach the springs to the fitted shoe. Last connect the other shoe to the springs and pull the shoe into its seat.

Need help putting on rear brakes on a 2004 pontiac grand am


shoe breaks are tricky but can be a little easier with practice and the right tools;
What you;ll nned:
Spring pliers
Shoe hold down tool
Diagonal side cutters.
Needle nose pliers
Flathead screw driver.

this project is easy so long as you can remember how the parts go back together.

!. remove brake drum.
2. see how the brakes fit together. REMEMBER HOW THE BRAKE BAR GOES BACK IN. IT ONLY WORKS CORRECTLY ONE WAY!

the brake bar is the metal piece that goes between the brake shoes.
3. remove the brake shoe springs with the spring pliers. *THE BRAKES HOW HIGH POWERED SPRINGS AND SHOULD BE HANDLED CAREFULLY*
4. remove the brake shoes with the spring tool.
5. clean parts thoroughly with brake part cleaner. (i like spraying it into a glass jar and shaking it a little) you can use a wire wheel to brush to clean the harder material.
then take some brake cleaner and spray down the backing plate and remove any and all grease and old brake material.
6. using brake grease, dab a small amount on the adjuster and the small oval shaped pads on the backing plate, *use a SMALL AMOUNT* less then a finger nail in size.
7. reassembly, now compare the shoes and take note that there are 2 long and 2 short shoes.
thte larger shoes go in the front and the smaller go to the rear of the vehicle. set the pairs aside so you do not confuse them. next a fix the shoes to the backing plate and then set the adjuster to the lowest setting, (shortest). and set the brake bar in place then set the springs (the longer springs)
8. adjusting the shoes. slip the drum on the hub and spin the brake, it should feel like it has a bit of drag. keep slipping the drum on and off making adjustments to the adjuster till the drum either is adjusted correctly or you cannot remove it, if you need to adjust the brake further there is an access in the backing plate for further adjustment.

I have a 1990 k1500 shortbox that im doing my rear brake shoes on. i need a diagram or a video or someone to tell me where and how to put all the springs and adjusters back on. anything will help. thank...


Tony, the secret is to remove the springs, one at a time, and place in a realtive position, so they go back the same, and also do one side at a time, so you could look at the other side, if you get stuck.

The shoe with more material goes towards the rear, less material to the front of the vehicle.

Here are some pictures to help.

1. my 96 ford windstar's tail lights dont work, but the bulbs are ok. 2 I want to change my rear brake shoes; are there any special tools I need?


If tail lights don't work, check your dimmer switch for any shorts. If the brake lights don't work, then check the brake switch behind the brake pedal. You can test them with a multitester.
For brake shoes you need socket or star wrench, and needle nose pliers for the springs unless you have a spring too. If you have disc brakes, then socket set and a c-clamp to push the pistons back in.

I cant figure out how to assemble the back brake shoes and springs back together


Maybe to late for this but if you do one side at a time just look at the other side for how they go together. Also the short shoe goes toward the front long toward the back.
1. Clean and inspect individual brake components.
2. Lubricate anchor pin an brake show contact pads on support plate with high temperature grease or
Lubriplate. See Fig. 41 .
3. Lubricate adjuster screw socket, nut, button, and screw thread surfaces with grease or Lubriplate.
4. Install the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever.
5. Install parking brake lever to the secondary shoe and install retaining clip.
6. Install primary shoe on support plate. Secure shoe with new spring retainers and pin.
7. Install spring on parking brake strut and engage strut in primary.
8. Install secondary shoe on support plate. See Fig. 42 . Insert strut in shoe and guide shoe onto anchor pin.
Temporarily secure shoe with restraining pin.
9. Install anchor plate and adjuster cable eyelet on support plate anchor pin.
10. Install cable guide in secondary shoe and position cable in guide.
CAUTION: Be sure the adjuster screws are installed on the correct brake unit. The adjuster screws are marked
"L" (left) or "R" (right) for identification
11. Assemble adjuster screw. See Fig. 43 . Then install adjuster screw between the brake shoes.
12. Install adjuster lever and spring, and connect adjuster cable to lever.
13. Install secondary shoe retainers and spring.
14. Install shoe spring. Connect spring to secondary shoe first, then to primary shoe.
15. Verify adjuster operation. Pull adjuster cable upward, cable should lift and rotate star wheel. Be sure
adjuster lever properly engages star wheel teeth.
16. Adjust brake shoes. See REAR BRAKE SHOES under ADJUSTMENTS.
17. Install wheel and tire assembly. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS

Reardrum brakes replacement 1998 ford taurus


First back off adjusters. Also do one side at a time so you can see how to replace the shoes in case you forget or take a picture. Sides are the exact opposite. Use a break spring push tool to remove shoe hold down springs. Make sure you do not press the brake peddle down while doing repair or you will have to bleed the breaks. Remove shoes & hardware. Use a water hose to clear away break dust. If there is a ridge you should have the drums turned on a lathe or replaced. Purchase a new spring kit for both sides. In stall in reverse order. If you have trouble removing the drums, you may have to back off the shoe adjusters with a shoe adjuster tool or large common screwdriver. Once all back together readjust the brakes & put tires back on. Use latex gloves as brake dust is highly toxic. Good luck!

How to change back brakes 1999 ford windstar, back brakes are grinding, brake light on


does it have rear disc brakes or drum brakes, if disc brakes should be changed just like the front and you might have an emergency brake shoe inside the rotor that they call a halo shoe, if it is drum brakes take off the adjusting spring and the return spring remove the brake adjuster,the the brake bar then remove the brake shoe hold down spring by holding the pin from the back and pushing and turning the spring to remove from the pin, you might have to remove the the emergency brake bar from one shoe by removing the horseshoe clip from the pin on the shoe if you have problems putting it back together look at the other side that you have not torn down yet.

Do know how to put drum brakes on


First you will need a brake spring wrench. This is like a 14" plier looking tool which will uninstall springs on one end of the tool and install springs using the other end. Remove the brake shoes and mount the new shoes one wheel at a time. You will use the other wheel as a reference when putting the new shoes in place. You may have a shoe retainer assembly holding each shoe to the backer plate. A normal pair of pliers will let you depress the spring and turn the spring keeper L or R to remove the keeper. Put your finger on the center pin from the back side of the backer plate so that it doesn't turn when you turn the keeper.

Rear brake shoes


Had the same problem and had to pull spring back, using two vise grips in order to do it. Then the brake cable will slip into place if you move the lever until the cable goes into the open part of the attachment on the bottom of the lever. Then turn or twist the brake shoe until the cable end fits properly.
Make sure to examine and think about which way to insert the cable end so that it is in properly to pull the lever.
