REMOVAL & INSTALLATION Light Duty Systems Fig. 1: Light duty brake system components Replacing rear drum brakes. - 88489g21.gif

  1. Raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheel and brake drum from the wheel to be worked on. NOTE: If you have never replaced the brakes on a van before and you are not too familiar with the procedures involved, only dissemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference during reassembly.
  2. Install a clamp over the ends of the wheel cylinder to prevent the pistons of the wheel cylinder from coming out, causing loss of fluid and much grief.
  3. Contract the brake shoes by pulling the self-adjusting lever away from the starwheel adjustment screw and turn the starwheel up and back until the pivot nut is drawn onto the starwheel as far as it will come.
  4. Pull the adjusting lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down and toward the rear to unhook the pivot hook from the large hole in the secondary shoe web. Do not attempt to pry the pivot hook from the hole.
  5. Remove the automatic adjuster spring and the adjusting lever.
  6. Remove the secondary shoe-to-anchor spring with a brake tool. (Brake tools are very common implements and are available at auto parts stores). Remove the primary shoe-to-anchor spring and unhook the cable anchor. Remove the anchor pin plate. Fig. 2: Use an appropriate tool to disengage the retracting springs 88489g22.gif

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2.2L 4 Cylinder. I will be replacing my rear axle beam relatively soon, and was wondering what size drums and brake shoes i will be needing? I don't know if it...


First of all, you have no rear axle. Are you talking about the subframe or your hubs? As for drum size, I would go with the same size that are coming off. If you want to (and can) go bigger, you just need to make sure they have enough clearance inside your wheels. When ordering parts, you will be asking for: wheel cylinders, shoes, spring kit and drums. Note: the wheel cylinders you will only need to change if you are changing the SIZE of your drums or IF THEY LEAK. To see if they are good, pull your drums, smack your shoes from one side then to the other (using the palms of your hands) then back to center. Pull back the rubber boots and inspect for moisture. If they're dry, don't change the cylinders. If they're wet, they're leaking and need to be replaced. Now, if you do need to replace your wheel cylinder(s), you need to look in behind and assess the condition of the brake line fitting. If it looks rotten beyond all hell, you'll likely be into doing the brake line(s) as well. NOTE: when you actually do get into changin your brakes, do ONE SIDE AT A TIME. Drum brakes can be complex and if you take apart both sides then you have no reference as to how to put them back together!

Rear brakes scrubbing are they pads or drums


pads go with disc brakes
shoes go with drum brakes.

If you have drums in the back, the rear brake shoes may be worn out or are not held together with the springs (a spring may have broken).

Have the brakes checked as soon as possible for broken or worn parts.

Good luck on this repair.

Brake shoes


Hi, not sure if you will be able to get a diagram or not. If you are looking to do your brakes yourself, you can block up one side of the car and pull the brake drum off. Once the drum is off, you will be able to see all of the parts and how they go together. Then jack up the other side and replace the brake shoes. Use the blocked up side with drum removed as a reference when putting the other side back together, then switch sides. This is how I have done it before and it works really well...maybe better than a diagram.

How do I put back together the rear drum?


These are standard Bendix self energising rear drum brakes. Pictures of the assembly with exploded views can be seen here....

The real difficulty with doing the re-assembling is not where the parts go, but getting it all back in place. There is a technique to use. If you have problems, get back here again.

My rear drum brakes are working too much


Back off the adjusters so the shoes barely touch the drums. Also are the shoes installed correctly. Get a diagram of the proper way to install the shoes,i.e. At a parts store or dealer. Good luck!

Compare the setup with the way they are arranged on the opposite wheel. I always recommend doing one wheel at a time with drum brakes, that way you can always walk to the other side and see how the springs are arranged.
