This is a pretty straight forward repair. Normally the hardest part of the repair is dis-assembly of the rear brake assembly components and retaining clips. There is a special tool, set of pliers you can purchase to simplify some of this but typically you can do the job with a Pair or Regular pliers, pair of Needle nose pliers and a large blades flat screw driver. For step by step instructions and illustrations of the work area I recommend the Haynes Repair manual for your vehicle.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
It is a good idea to only disassemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference.
The drum brakes are self-adjusting and require a manual adjustment only after the brake shoes have been replaced, or when the length of the adjusting screw has been changed while performing some other service operation.
Fig. Fig. 2: When using a brake adjustment gauge, first measure the inside diameter of the drum (top) and then adjust the brakes shoes to the proper outside diameter (bottom)
Fig. Fig. 3: Measure brake shoe thickness in several places around the shoe
Inspect the brake shoes for wear using a ruler or Vernier caliper. Compare measurements to the brake specifications chart. If the lining is thinner than specification or there is evidence of the lining being contaminated by brake fluid or oil, replace all brake pad assemblies (a complete axle set).
