Break drums are smoking after I replaced the break shoes

Sounds like you adjusted the brake shoes too far out and they are dragging (rubbing) on the inside of the drum. Back off the adjustments; the wheel should turn freely and stop only when you just begin to apply the brakes. The other thing that could be wrong is that the emergency brake is engaged; release the emergency brake.

I am tearing my hair out as I have replaced all cables, brake shoes and had the drums skimmed but the hand brake still doesn't work any suggestions?

pull the drums back off and check how the hand brake cable is attached. pull the cable from the back and see if the shoes open out. It is possible to put the handbrake actuator in incorrectly so that the shoes do not move outwards when the cable is pulled. Next reassemble the drums and pull the cable again from the back and see it that stops the drum from turning. Check to see how far the hand piece comes out /up or down if it is a foot operated lever. In all cases correct adjust is around 3-4 clicks of the ratchet . If it comes all the way out check and adjust the cable at the hand ( if it has 2 cables to the handle or if the cable goes from wheel to the other and there is just the one cable up to the handle piece then adjust it where the single cable pulls on the one that goes to the back shoes

Adjusment of hand brake on 2003 Kia Carnival

firstly don't just tighten the cable. take the drum off and check the auto adjusters, you can adjust it by hand by turning it a few notches at a time and replacing the drum t check for it binding. I would also check that the handbrake lever inside the drum is operating correctly, (get someone to put the hand break on and off so you can check it0, also when the hand break is right off, the lever should be right back and not half way, if it is not right back then slacken the cable of until it is. (this is what can stop it from self adjusting too) when you have done this to both wheels and replaced the drums check the number of notches the handbrake lever is coming up. If it is too many, then you need to re adjust the cable just enough to take the slack out of it, this should be now fixed but double check that your wheels are not binding. Another point is if your brake shoes are worn down replace them first. if they have any fluid on them from any leak on the wheel cylinders replace the cylinders, bleed the brakes and replace the shoes.

Bleed breaks pedal still spongy

On these old manual brake systems without automatic adjusters you have to set the shoe clearance by turning the adjuster on each shoe out so the shoe is very close to the drum. If there is too much clearance between the shoe and drum the shoe will move as far as it can and never touch the drum, this will make a low or no pedal pressure.

Break goes down lower then normal but the breaks stop the car , my break light came on last week but i added break fluid and then my break light went off then it was ok but i could not start my car becouse...

I it is usually the brake shoe adjusters at the rear.

Auto adjust type:
To adjust them you can hold your foot hard down on the brake pedal and wrech up the park brake lever a few times

Manual adjust
Drums off and wind the adjuster cog to increase the diametre of the shoes, don't get carried away thow or the drum wont go back on

How do i adjust the hand break system on focus 1999

hi there, you will need to slacken of the cable adjuster just next to the handbrake lever under its gaiter, jack up the vheicle and remove the rear wheels, remove the rear brake drums, clean and adjust the brake shoes also remove any dust from the drum, if the shoes are worn out they will need replacing, with the drums removed check everything is working freely by getting someone to operate the handbrake lever as you visually inspect the shoes you should see them moving backwards and forwards, if not then strip down and free off, i would advice doing one side at a time so you always have a point of referance to work from. check the wheel cylinder is free and not leaking, if so replace. adjust the brake shoes and refit the drums, once this is done readjust your hanbrake cable so it comes up 3-4 clicks, if this seems a little dawnting your local garage should be able to do you this job for a small fee, hope this helps
