I have a 2001 Mazda 626 LX 2.0 L L4 I cannot get the rear brake drum to go over the new shoes that I installed I have tried using the adjuster and everything


the starwheel adjuster will only compensate for a very small amount of space and i believe is only intended to provide an auto-mechanical means to ensure the same minute gap between the two components (drum and pads) is maintained throughout the entire life of the parts.

you dont want to even put the new shoes on until you've ensured the piston is evenly compressed back into the wheel cylinder...to ensure the integrity of your new parts are maintained just use a "c" clamp over the old shoes, then crack the bleeder valve and use the clamp to re-seat the wheel cylinders piston/s as the piston/s displace the small amount of brake fluid from the wheel cylinder. then put your new pads on and voila! your rotor should have the clearance that it requires to get the drum back over the shoes/pads and in its proper place. THEN adjust the starwheel to minimize the distance the pads must travel to engage the rotor.

I cannot get my brake drum to go on after installing new brake shoes I have tried using the adjuster but still nothing .


Ensure that you have the correct shoes for your vehicle. Some models may have two different sizes for that axles and if you get
the wrong size it may seem to fit, but won't go into the drum. If the shoes are correct, then you need to look at the drum itself. As the brake shoes rub the inside of the drum, they wear the drum down, leaving a raised ridge at the outside edge of the drum. This is what usually causes the issue of drums not going on. If adjusting the self adjuster all the way down to the smallest possible size won't work, then you need to take the drums to a mechanic and have them turned down to get rid of the ridge. It is usually recommended to turn the drums regardless, but they may be under minimum thickness and then would need to be replaced.

How do i adjust hand break new shoes fitted on a smart for two hand break lever is all the way uo ?


Adjusting the Hand Brake is quite easy

At the bottom of the Hand Brake Lever , you will see the cable with like nuts (teeth) on the cable locked by the lock on the lever it self, you will need to open the lock , take the cable off the lock , drop the handle down and put the cable back on the lever and lock it.

That is how the hand brake is adjusted on the Smart car 2002 model

Adjusting Kia rio handbrake cable


The brake drum does not fit due to the pressure in brake cylinders. Some of the cylinders are designed to keep a little pressure on, even when the pedal is released. The reason is that you will have instant reaction on pushing break pedal because there is no free space between drum and pads. You need to take clamp and push the pistons back in cylinder, but only that much so you can fit the drum. After the drum is tightened you must pump the brake pedal until you can fell that there is no free fall. The hand brake should be ok, but check it just to be shore. If there is need to tension the cable, it can be done under lever from outside the car (you must go under the car).

Replacing the rear drums after the shoes are in. Don't seem to want to go on.


Sounds like the shoes are adjusted to far out, adjust the shoes in (closed) until you can fit the drum there should be just a slight drag when you rotate the drum.

hi from the uk in answer to your question you do not need to disconnect or remove the abs sensor you just remove the brake drum from the hub then remove shoe locating springs that retain shoes to backplate then lift off and remove bottom return spring this then allows you to slip the brake shoes off w/cyl at top complete with spring and auto adjuster ? then to remove the handbrake cable just pull the shoe and the quadrant lever apart so cable can be lifted out of the hook up on lever ? you can now interchange shes/springs /adjuster on your bench ? also run te adjuster wheel back on thread to off position this will enable you to fit shoes back to backplate and moreso help in fitting cable to its hookup ? when brakeshoes are refitted ? and centralized on back plate ? you can manuall rotate the adjuster wheel and keep tryin the drum for fitting and rotating with no binding trial/error method when satisfied ? refit screws to secure drum then do same with other side when completed you must bleed both wheels this will improve b/pedal your handbrake will also be better/less travel when applied hope these instructions help you ? best wishes from uk

1994 corolla 1.3,rear n/side brake drum runs hot, new shoes fiitted,is it poor wheel cylinder pistons?


Check that the brake shoes are adjusted correctly and that the new shoes ar'nt to thick.It is always better to skim the drums to fit new shoes if needed.Poor wheel cylinder will cause no brakes at that wheel unless it is siezed and not releasing

Handbrake problem


hi fro uk when you reassembled brake shoes? did you notice the tubular bar just below b/cylinder? it fits between the two shoes and has a toothed wheel on the treaded side(l/h) this is the auto adjuster ie as tooth wheel is rotated it extends the treaded side thus adjusting shoes to drum o/k? this is normally done auto by the small lever below but when fitting new shoes you must adjust this rod with tooth wheel and keep trying drum fitting when you can fit drum /just? fit and press brake to centralise shoes to drum then adjust again if req'd so that drum fits and rotates withh shoes not binding ?? do both sides THENyou willdrums fitted you will feel b/pedal is improved ie less travel on braking ? SO FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS SLACKEN OFF H/BRAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENT /SLACK ? then proceed with the above instruction afterwards if you do as above then you pull h/brake up one notch ? then adust slack from cable to light tension release h/brake and ensure wheels rotate freely when you apply h/brake it should hold on approx four//five notch ? hope this helps
