You can rent a contraption called a drum puller at any tool rental place. Make sure you liberally spray some type of nonflamable anti-corrosive agent around the stud holes and smack it a few times with a hammer as you pull it off. There are self adjusters for the shoes inside the drum which usually push the shoes so far out that they hang up the drum. If there is any way to get a flat bladed tool through the backing plate and back off the adjusters it would help. Used to be a small oval opening for that purpose, suppose that is gone these days.

Call junkyards, look on ebay or craigslist, and find out. You are obviously going to need a used part. Having located a used part, find a mechanic to find out how much the labor will be.

Here's your book info is below...
Most auto parts stores carry Haynes Manuals. You can order them from Haynes if needed. Or...often they are carried in your local library.

I have done Ford and Toyota clutches using these books. Clutch replacement is not hard, just time consuming...And easier if you have a lift.

Note: If like many vehicles, don't forget to replace the engine rear main seal while you have access with the fly wheel off.

You can call Haynes and ask specifically if the book covers the repair you are attempting. I have called them to get more specific wiring diagrams not always provided with the books. Very helpful in providing tech data... I have a Haynes manual for all my vehicles...makes maintenance and repair much easier than researching every I need to do something to my vehicles.

Best of luck finding the information you need...

1996 saturn sl1 stick


take the wheel and drum off the back and check that the shoes are not worn out on the edges..what happens is the end wears off first but as pressure is applied the shoe moves to where there is some pad left..severe brake dust can do it too. get the brakes checked as soon as you can.to clean and adjust the rear brakes is not that expensive.
