SOURCE: rear brakes uneven breaking as per mot tester

The Chardes have a diagonal split system, so one of the front discs is plumbed to the diagonally located rear drum.

You may need to check the front brakes too and that they have been bleed properly.

Other common cause of uneven braking are:

seized wheel cylinder;
brake hose obstruction or weakend wall;
weak pull off spring on shoe;
uneven drum roundness;
compensator/proportioning valve dicky.

SOURCE: how to change brake shoes on rear drums of a 2006

most drum brakes are pretty much the same. once you've got the wheel off, it is just a matter of beating on the drum until it releases. get a big hammer and beat the living daylights outta the drum, but try not dent it or break it... it will eventually release. the brake shoes are in there. take a picture of them if you want, so you can refer to it when you put all those springs back in there. also take both wheels off and work on one side at a time so that you can refer to the other side if you get confused. you must bleed your brakes when you are done so find a helper to pump the brake pedal while you operate the bleeder valve.

SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoes on a 2004 chevy venture

The rear brake shoes use a U clip to hold the shoes together. A simple solution to this change job is to change one side at a time.
Slowly unclip the U clip from the top of the shoe and remove the left shoe and spring. Replace the left shoe and reconnect the U clip, then do the same for the other shoe. Clean, adjust,and grease the self adjuster and you're done. Do the same for the other side of the van. If you take both sides of the clip off you're in for some heavy duty stretching with pliers unless you have the right tool.

SOURCE: replace rear brakes adjust handbrake

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

SOURCE: how to change rear brake shoe pads of 2005 mitsubishi lancer

Hello, this do it yourself project is very manageable if it is brake pads that you are replacing on your car; if they are disc shoes it may be a little bit harder. In essence a brake job can be done straight out of a auto manual for your car and is not to diffucult as long as you follow good safety procedures while jacking up your vehicle and removing your wheels. First, I would park your car and setting your parking break will make your rear brakes impossible to get off so do not set it. I would however keep this in mind and be very careful working on your car then. I would chaulk your front wheel with a chaulk block or a brick. I would loosen your lug nuts just to break the intial torque I would then jack up the rear of your vehicle and set jack stands under your car in the proper locations. Then systematically, remover your wheel and then the two bolts holding your caliper to the spindle. Carefully, remove the caliper and do not let it hang becuase you will bend your brake line. Remove old shoes, then compress the caliper with a caliper compression tool from your local auto parts store or a c-clamp and a small block of wood. Inspect the rotor for deep gouges, a blue tint, or if you know you have gotten them really hot before I would replace the rotor. Next, install the new brake pads, put rotor back onto spindle and insert bolts back into caliper housing. Repeat for the next side and put the wheel back on and remember to torque your lug nuts to the proper specification. I hope this fixes your problem for you!

How to do a rear brake assembly


if you mean to replace the rear brakes,then you can remove both drums and look at how the brakes are installed and replace one side at a time using the other side to see how the spring system is fastened to the brakes to hold them in place.just remember the rear shoe(of both shoes on one side) is always the longer of the shoes if there is a difference in length of the shoe brake material.some brakes have a long shoe and a short shoe when you look at a shoe and compare it to each of the other shoes.some the shoes are the same length,in which case it won`t make any difference.

How hard is it to replace the splash shields on the rear brakes on a 2005 Avalanche 1500 ? This is the shield that the emergency brakes are bolted to. It looks like you have to pull the axels.


Hi, this is not a terrible job, but you are correct, the axles need to be removed, After this, you remove the park brake shoe, cable, and hardware.Unbolt the shield, swap over park brake stuff, and reassemble. Not extremely har, but is a b it time consuming. Good luck...Coop

My 2005 dodge neon made a clunk noise and then the passenger rear tire locked up. Up until this point it drove fine. Help!


Your problem would appear to be something amiss in the rear brake on the locked wheel. If a wheel sylinder was leaking the brake shoes would become "sticky" and cause the shoes to "lock on" to the drum. Or if the brake was out of adjustment, the assembly could come apart and pieces of it jamb the wheel. This problem is fairly common with drum brakes. You need to have the rear brakes serviced, & checked for fluid or grease on the braking surfaces. All leaks fixed, backing plates cleaned, the wheel cylinders overhauled, & the brake shoes replaced.
