You have a broken spring that is allowing the shoe to grab the drum at all times or the parking brake cable is stuck in the on position. It could also be a component inside that came loose and is wedged between the shoe and drum. The rear flexible brake hose could have also collapsed, and is keeping pressure on the shoe.

Rear drum brake locked on a 1998 volkswagen jetta


You could try momentarily releasing the bleed nipple. If that frees the brake it is a hydraulic problem causing it to bind.

You might have assembled wrong and should take a look at the repair manual or compare with the other side but most commonly such problems are caused by the handbrake cable or levers not fully returning or being adjusted to tightly.

When working on a drum brake the cable adjustment should be fully released before finally fitting the drum and then the brake pedal should be pressed hard several times and then the cable readjusted and the brake checked for correct operation before fitting the wheel. Any problems then are obvious before it goes anywhere near the road.

1993 Ford Taurus drivers side rear wheel cylinder piston is popping out


Your description sounds like the brakes are WAY out of adjustment. The brake cylinders need the shoes to hit the drum or they will do exactly what you describe. I always adjust the shoes until they lock the wheel, then back off until the wheel spins freely, usually 8 to 20 clicks.

How do you adjust the rear drum breaks on a 1990 Ford Laser Hatchback


to adjust the brakes --- at the bottom of the drum housing ( twords the inside of the car ) there should be a little oblong rubber cover. pop that cover off and you will see a gear looking wheel adjuster,, using a flathead screw driver rotate the wheel -- in one direction it will advance the shoes and in the other direction it will decrease the shoes. make sure the parking brake is off while you make the adjustment -- also make sure the side you are working on is jacked up off the ground so you can spin the wheel / hub to get the brake shoes in the right position. you should not hear any rubbing of the brakes as the drum spins. -- I find it best to turn the gear adjuster just to the point where the shoes start to grab,, then back off a couple clicks --- repeat on the other side and you should be good to go. hope this helps --

How to take off rear brake drum


hit it with a hammer in a few spots toward the edge to pop loose, then spin a little as you pull, if there a lip inside the drum and it wont slide off, then you will need to loosen the shoes by turning the brake shoe adjusters in, theres one on each side, you loosen by turning them in from the rear of the backing plate,also if there are spring nuts on drum remove and discard, they look like flat thin washer over the studs to hold drum on,here are to diagrams to help you remove the drum.b4b436c.gif9c62725.gif

1993 ford f-150 rear drum brakes locking up


You need to replace the brake shoe springs they are weak and allowing the brakes to catch and pull out as the wheel spins like a CD or record player this cause the shoes to lock into the drum and forces them to lock up. A brake spring kit cost $8.00 for a set and it does both sides, it also has the nail and nail springs that hold the shoes against the drum. Check to be sure you don't have micro cracks in the shoes caused by the brakes locking up and heating up. Also does it have rivited shoes or glued on shoes, please rate if this was helpful.
