On the brake drum backing plate under the truck on the rear, you will see a slot near the bottom that has a rubber plug in it. Remove the rubber plug and use a brake shoe adjustment tool to adjust the brake shoes in. This will allow you to remove the drum. The tool looks like this and can be bought at any parts store.

Rear drum brakes stuck on 1991 chevy silverado


Its likely you eighter lose a hold down spring for the shoe or poped a wheel cylinder pistion out so it can't return properly Your brake shoes in eighter case are spend this caused the problem Try to apply the parking brake you may be able to lossen it up but the rear brakes need to be replaced . To get the drum off if the parking brake dosn't work you will need to look at the back of the rear brake plate inside of the tire where the brake lines hook up. There will be a rubber plug at the bottom of the plate remove it inside there is a part called a star wheel you can turn it with a stright head screw driver . This will release the tenistion on the shoes and allow you to remove the brake drums . But keep in mind that one of the star wheels turns right handed and the other turns left handed so if it feels like its is getting tighter your turning the wheel the wrong way it should get easyer to turn Good luck you need new rear brakes

S 10 1997 Chevy Blazer brake locking up


Common cause is the drums and brake shoes need to be replaced. When there no longer within the the specification for the brakes to work properly, the self adjusters will over adjust the brake shoes and you'll have the feeling of the rear drum brakes lock up as the shoes will bind up along the drums. Replace both Shoes and Drums and this can be done on your own will common tools and a simple brake spring tool that you can pick up at Auto Zone or Parts Source and both can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the rear brake system. Good luck and be safe.

1989 chevy 3500 4x4 454 rear brake drum removal. Does the axle bolts need to be removed


Can you tell me which type of axle you have?

Full Floating Axles To remove the drums from full floating rear axles, use the Axle Shaft Removal & Installation procedure in Section 7. Full floating rear axles can readily be identified by the bearing housing protruding through the center of the wheel.


Semi-Floating Axles
  1. Raise and support the rear end on jack stands.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Pull the drum from the brake assembly. If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so that the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.

You may have to back off the automatic adjuster before you can pull the drum from the brake assembly

To install, reverse the removal procedure.

How to change rear drum brakes on 1991 cavalier


If you are familar with a front brake drum on a rear wheel drive vehicle, the procedure is the same, if you have not seen this in the past it might be wise to have a professional do the job. Brakes are not something you want to take a chance with.
