Slack off the parking brake cables completely. Follow the cable from one wheel to where it comes together with the cable from the other wheel. There should be an adjusting nut. Loosen the nut and turn the cable joint so that it unscrews as far as it will go. Also open the fluid reservoir in the engine compartment. You can now attempt to remove the drum. Some hammering may help to get the shoes to retract fully. Releasing/penetrating fluid on the centre of the drum where it fits over the hub is also recommended.

Which is the primary shoe


Short shoe on the front long shoe on the back. Drum style brakes are self energizing. When the wheel cylinder pushes the shoes out, the front shoe tries to spin with the drum, which pushes on the adjuster, pressing on the rear shoe. So the rear shoe is pushed into the drum by the wheel cyl, and the front shoe.

Need instructions for installing parking brake shoes on a 2001 Dodge 3500 pickup


This is a big job for such a small part. I suggest you repair/replace rotors, pads, and anything else back there while you are at it. You will need to remove both wheels on both sides, as well as the axles (I think). See my earlier post on Rear Rotor removal to see how this is done.

You will need a large spindle nut to remove the axles.

DISASSEMBLY:
Once you have access to the parking brakes inside the rotor hat:
1. Lock out the parking brake w/a pair of Vise grips (on the parking brake cable under the cab)
2. Disengage teh park brake cable from behind the rotor assembly to allow easier disassembly of the parking brake shoes.
3. Disassemble the rear park brake shoes.

REASSEMBLY:
1. Reassemble the rear parking brake shoes. This is a typical, small brake drum configuration. Do one side at a time - so you can see how to reassemble each small part. Keep the springs and parts oriented the same: front to front and interior to interior, etc.
2. Release the parking brake cable
3. Install the disc brake rotor(s)
4. Install the disc brake caliper(s)
5. Install tire & wheel assembly
6. Lower the vehicle

ATI LOCK LIGHT ON BRAKES WORKING BUT DONT FEEL THE SAME AS NORMAL


Check Brake fluid level.

When the ABS light is on, the brakes should revert to standard braking.

The only time ABS should invoke is when the tires are slipping as sensed by the wheel speed sensors when the wheel locks up on any of the axles.

ANTI-LOCK BRAKE SYSTEMS General Information Fig. 1: RWAL brake system diagram
Fig. 2:4WAL Component locations — except 1996 models

Fig. 5: Four sensor 4WAL brake system diagram — Except 1996 models
There are two basic types of anti-lock systems available for this vehicle; a Rear Wheel Anti-Lock (RWAL) brake system and 4 Wheel Anti-Lock (4WAL) brake system. The 4WAL system has two variations; a 3 sensor system and a 4 sensor system. The 2WD vehicles will be equipped with the 3 sensor system, but the AWD vehicles can be equipped with either. The systems are easily identified by looking at the rear wheels for a sensor harness. If there is a sensor harness and thus, rear wheel sensors, it is the 4 sensor system. If the vehicle is not equipped with a harness, it is the 3 sensor system. The 4 sensor system takes it speed references from each of the wheels. The 3 sensor system takes its speed references from each of the front wheels and the vehicle speed sensor located in the transmission (2WD) or the transfer case (AWD). The RWAL system components consist of the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), the Electronic Control Unit (ECU), the isolation/dump valve and the Vehicle Speed Sensor Buffer (also known as the Digital Ratio Adapter). The ECU also receives signals from various brake switches. The 4WAL system components consist of the Electro-Hydraulic Control Unit (ECHU) valve (also known as the Brake Pressure Modulator Valve or BPMV), the wheel speed sensors, Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) on 3 sensor systems and the VSS Buffer. prev.gif next.gif

1996 dodge ram 3500, abs brakes are locking up


is it the front or rear locking up? you really have to have this truck loaded (load valve under bed) before the back brakes come on and i think these are the same as my 1999 2500 where the rear is only abs, and not on the front..dumb design i know, but thats how it is...determining if its rear abs only and which axle is locking up will help pin point the problem...i put 100000 miles on my dodge since i got it in 2001 and i put 8 sets of pads on the front and just changed the rear lining and thats only because the rear wheel cylinder was leaking causing the rear brakes to lock up..

Rear drums heat up on Dodge 3500 dually - diesel


check the load valve under the bed for proper operation..it is controlled by the weight placed in the bed, if its faulty, it could put to much brake to the rear wheels.
