Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.

Need to know how to install wheel bearings on a chevy cavalier


1) Break the torque on the center wheel nut and remove the nut and washer before jacking up the front end. 2) Jack up the front and remove the tire. 3) Remove the brake caliper and rotor. 4) After removing the rotor you will see the bearing assy. There are 3 torx bolts holding it on. You need to put the transmission in neutral to turn the hub and line up the hole to remove the bolts. 4) Knock it loose with a hammer and install in reverse order. The kit comes with a seal but I don't believe it's needed on a 96. Pretty simple job really... Good Luck.

97 astro van awd there is a clicking in the front end only when driving straight, have replaced half shaft, wheel bearings, brakes, rotors, and calipers, and the noise is still there any ideas


Have it put on a rack, and spin the wheels, but don't spin them over 30mph, and go under vehicle and see if the noise will direct you to the problem.

Cavalier blowing out black smoke car idles fairly well considerin


Black smoke is usually unburned fuel. P0171 reads bank 1 system too lean. There isn't one answer. You need to dig further and inspect your cars fuel system, from the pump to the injectors. Because of the mileage you may want to start off with a compression test just to see where you stand with the motor. write back if you have any other questions.

1997 chevy cavalier brake problems


A slick surface has nothing to do with it, it would actually be less of a noise on a slick surface,and if its a wet road, the water acts as lubricant on the pads, it sound like the job was done wrong, a pad clip broke, they did not clean the rotor( bad groves or chips in rotor, may had needed a resurface)
or they did resurface the rotor too good and the pads glazed over and are like to hard surfaces touching.
You need someone to pull the front two tires and inspect the calipers and rotors, someone that knows what they are doing. If the pads are still new and the rotor is slick,(very smooth ) they need to be ruffed up with a coarse sand paper, or the sand disk that mechanics use on rotors.
