How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

  9. Remove the actuator link, parking brake strut, spring retaining ring.
  10. Remove the parking brake lever and washer.
  11. Remove the shoe assemblies.
  12. Remove the adjuster screw and spring from the shoe assembly.
To Install:
  1. Use brake cleaning fluid to remove dirt from the brake drum. Check the drums for scoring, cracks and for out-of-round; service the drums as necessary.
  2. Check the wheel cylinders by carefully pulling the lower edges of the wheel cylinder boots away from the cylinders. If there is excessive leakage, the inside of the cylinder will drip fluid; repair or replace as necessary.
  3. Check the flange plate, which is located around the axle, for leakage of differential lubricant.
  4. Lightly lubricate the parking brake cable, parking brake lever where it enters the shoe and the backing plate-to-shoe contact points. Use high temperature, waterproof, grease or special brake lube.
  5. Install the parking brake lever into the secondary shoe with the attaching bolt, spring washer, lockwasher, and nut. It is important that the lever move freely before the shoe is attached. Move the assembly and check for proper action.
  6. Lubricate the adjusting screw and make sure it works freely.
  7. Connect the adjuster screw and spring to the bottom portion of both shoes. Ensure the spring does not interfere with the adjuster rotation when installed. The primary (smaller shoe pad area) to the front and secondary shoe (larger shoe pad area) to the rear of the vehicle.
  8. Install the shoe assembly. Ensuring the shoe webs are positioned correctly against the wheel cylinder.
  9. Install the parking brake cable.
  10. Secure the primary shoes with the hold-down pin and spring.
  11. Install the parking brake strut and the strut spring.
  12. Install the actuator lever and pivot, securing the assembly with the hold-down pin and spring. Install the actuator link and spring.
  13. Install the return springs.
  14. Check the operation of the self-adjusting mechanism by moving the actuating lever by hand.
  15. Adjust the brakes and install the drum.
  16. Adjust the parking brake.
  17. Install the tire and wheel assembly.
  18. Lower the vehicle.
Leading-Trailing Type To Remove:
  1. Raise the vehicle and support it safely.
  2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
  3. Remove the brake drums.

  5. Slide the actuator off the adjuster pin. Disconnect the actuator spring from the shoe.
  6. Remove the hold-down spring assemblies and pins.
  7. Pull the bottom ends of the shoes apart and lift the lower return spring over the anchor plate. Allow the shoe ends to come together and remove the spring.
  8. Remove the shoe assembly, along with the upper return spring and the adjusting screw assembly.
  9. Remove the upper return spring and the adjusting screw assembly from the shoes.
  10. Remove the retaining ring, pin, spring washer, and parking brake lever.

CAUTION
Brake shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid. NOTE: A brake spring removal tool and a brake adjusting gauge are required for this procedure.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely with jackstands.
  2. If the brakes have never been serviced before, the drums will be held on the wheel studs with spring nuts. Remove the spring nuts and discard.
  3. Turn the adjustment starwheel so that the brake shoes are retracted from the brake drum and remove the brake drum.
  4. Install wheel cylinder clamps to retain the wheel cylinder pistons in place and prevent leakage of brake fluid while replacing the shoes.
  5. Remove the U-clip and washer securing the adjuster cable to the parking brake lever.
  6. Remove the adjuster cable, cable guide, adjuster lever and adjuster springs. Remove the return springs with a brake spring remover tool.
  7. Remove the hold-down retainers and springs, then remove the brake shoes. To install:
  8. Clean the backing plate with a brush or cloth. Place a dab of Lubriplate® on each spot where the brake shoes rub on the backing plate. NOTE: Always replace brake linings in axle sets. Never replace linings on one side or just on one wheel.
  9. Thoroughly clean and lubricate the adjuster cable guides, adjuster screw and pivot, parking brake lever and lever pivot pin with multi-purpose grease.
  10. Apply a thin coat of multi-purpose chassis lube to the mounting pads on the backing plate.
  11. Transfer the parking brake actuating lever to the new secondary shoe.
  12. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, then install the hold-down springs and retainers. Don't forget to engage the parking brake lever with the cable.
  13. Install the parking brake actuating bar and spring between the parking brake lever and primary shoe.
  14. Install the self-adjusting cable, cable guide and upper return springs.
  15. Thoroughly clean the starwheel and lightly lubricate the threads with lithium based grease.
  16. Install the starwheel.
  17. Install the self-adjusting cam and lower spring. A big pair of locking pliers is good for this job.
  18. Check the surface of the brake shoes for any grease that may have gotten on them. If dirty, lightly clean with a piece of sandpaper.
  19. Adjust the brakes, install the brake drum and wheel. Lower the vehicle and test drive.
