If you have rear Rotors, there is a complete drum inside the Rotor for the Emergency brakes. The Star wheel is an adjustment wheel for slack on this part. You need to turn the star wheel to let the Rotor slip off.

Also, block your wheels, disconnect Battery, then put Gearshift in Neutral. Turn the wheel and you can work the Rotor off. You may have to use Penetrating oil on the outside of the Rotor and the center "Ring" of the axle. Oil and turn the Rotor, 1 stud at a time.
Hit the rotor between the studs and the center of the Axle.

What you are trying to accomplish is getting oil into the stud holes so that it runs into the rotor and loosens the rust bond.

When you reassemble the parts, buy some Antiseize compound and smear it on the axle so the rotor can not rust together again.

This advice and the star wheel instructions also holds true for drum brakes too!.

Tip

Removing rear rotors


On the rear wheels, the inside of the rotors act as a drum for the emergency brake shoes. You must loosen the emergency brake so that the shoes back away from the inside walls of the rotor. Loosen the emergency brake, left and right side, by loosening both nuts at the emergency brake handle. Further, the emergency brake's internal adjusting nuts are accessible through the lug holes in the hub. Then remove the rear rotors

Emergency brake adjustment


There are 2 ways. It has rear drum in hat style brakes, meaning it has pads and rotors for basic brakes, but incorporated in the rotor is a drum with park brake shoes inside. Remove rear pads and rotors, check the condition of the park brake shoes. Tighten the star wheel adjuster while installing the rotor, keep repeating until rotor feels snug pushing on. Repeat other side reassemble. If still doesn't feel tight, there is an adjustment nut on the left rear side on the cable. The nut is where the 2 rear cables meet, it can be tightened. Do not tighten first, if you ever need park brake shoes later they will not allow the rotors to go back on.

After aplying E-brake, Left rear wheel is locked up?


The parking brake cable is not releasing, usually due to corrosion within the cable jacket or inside the drum if it has drum rear brakes. Put the rear end up on jack stands and have a helper push and release the parking brake and watch what the cable is doing on both sides. You should be able to see the hang up. If it is inside the brake drum you may want to try a bit of WD40 applied to the cable where it enters the backing plate. Do not go overboard with it as it will collect inside on the drum's braking surface.

What order are the brakes suppose to be bled in


Always bleed the brake that is the furthest away from the master cylinder.

If your master cylinder is located on the drivers side, (Left), you would bleed the Right rear brake.
Then the Left rear brake, Right front brake, and finally the Left front brake.

2004 ford focus brake lights on when side lights on


This problem sounds like a short in the lighting system. Since the side lights get brighter when you press the brake pedal, you have power crossing from the brake wire to the marker wire. Try removing the left rear brake bulb and se if the problem continues. If it does, reinstall the left bulb and try removing the brake bulb on the other side and see if that fixes the problem. If the problem persists examin the wires closely for broken insulation.

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.
