If your car is equipped with rear disc brakes then you will need to replace the pads, if you have drum brakes you will need to replace the shoes.

Pads go with disc brakes
shoes go with drum brakes.

If you have drums in the back, the rear brake shoes may be worn out or are not held together with the springs (a spring may have broken).

Have the brakes checked as soon as possible for broken or worn parts.

Good luck on this repair.

hi! the pads will be rutted into the drum, you need to release them first with the cables backed off and the cams wound down, then just tap off the drums!

The rear brakes should last from 30000 to 60000 miles or 50000 to 100000 kms. So something is wearing out your brakes too fast. Are you doing the work or some shop. I also assume you have discs and not drums since you mention pads and calipers. I am not certain but usually you need a tool to turn the pistion in when putting in new pads. I would make sure the pads are releasing properly by raising rear of car, stepping on brakes a few times (with engine off and try see if wheels are free by spinning by hand, also try to use handbrake a few times and release it and see if wheels spin freely. Maybe rears always applied. Notice burning smell, are discs glazed from heat? Are you using really cheap pads. Also check the proportioning valve which will decrease pressure to rear brakes during hard braking. Do you notice rear wheels squeling during hard braking. Do you have antilock brake system? Also are you using good quality pads and rotors.

SOURCE: Rear Drum Brake Install

Removal & Installation

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the drum retaining nuts, if equipped, and remove the brake drum.
If the drum will not come off, pry the rubber plug from the backing plate. Insert a narrow rod through the hole in the backing plate and disengage the adjusting lever from the adjusting screw. While holding the adjustment lever away from the screw, back off the adjusting screw with a brake adjusting tool. Be careful not damage the notches in the adjusting screw or the self-adjusting mechanism will not function properly.
  1. Inspect the brake drum for scoring and wear. Replace or machine as necessary. If machining, observe the maximum diameter specification.
To install:
  1. If a new drum is being installed, remove the protective coating from the drum using brake cleaner. Sand the drum lightly and wipe with a cloth soaked in denatured alcohol.
  2. Adjust the brake shoes according to the procedure in this Section.
  3. Install the brake drum and the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Lower the vehicle.

The 2 links are diagrams for shoe placement and the automatic brake adjuster.
Be sure to have the drums turned before installing the brake shoes.

Hope this answers your question. Best of luck on your repair.

Need to replace brakes on 2000 GMC Safari. does it have disc brakes all around or drum rakse in rear?


Disc brakes in the front and drum brakes in the rear. Make sure that you repack the front bearing's with wheel grease before finishing the job.If the front rotors and or the rear drums have a rough brake pad surface,get them resurfaced before installing new brake pads or brake shoes in the rear. you can go online or your public library for complete instructions on how to replace the brakes on that vehicle.

My 2004 Isuzu Rodeo was recently inspected and failed because the two rear brakes are not applying at the same time. I was told the rear right brake is applying about half as fast as the left. How do I fix...


The easiest way is to pull the wheels and the drum and adjust the self adjuster
at the bottom (it is a threaded affair with a sprocket on it at the bottom of the
assembly). They sell a tool to adjust this without pulling wheels,
but I always found it easier to do it with the wheels removed
which allows inspection of the self adjuster and springs and brake "nails".
Adjust the pads until they just touch the drums and then back them off a little.
push the brake pads together before reinstalling the drum, spin the drums to make sure
they aren't scrubbing, reinstall wheels and take for a test drive to make sure the
pads are seated and recheck if necessary. It sounds complicated but the hardest part
is taking off the wheels and drums. Hope this is useful.

I have a 2003 toyota corolla S edition. I need to get the rear brakes replaced, but when I went to the parts store for rotors and pads, they told me I might need drums and shoes. How can I find out what...


The best way would be to remove the wheel and see if you have drums or discs. Disc brakes on the rear will look like the front brakes, as discs are required on the front of 1970 vehicles and newer. You will see the rotor which will be shiny where the pads have rubbed it. On a drum, it will look like a rusty metal bowl facing away from you. If you have custom wheels you may be able to see through the spokes, but dust guards will not let you tell from the back.

1990 Toyota Corolla rear drums bad?


If your pads are completely gone then you may have damaged the drums if you still have any pads left or shoes if they are drum brakes then you still need to have your drums checked out for the proper size to still be there for the brakes to function properly. You won't know until you look at them or are shown them by a pro. who has measured and found them to be beyond reuse! If you had leaks then you will need to repair the brake calipers or the wheel cylinders depending on which system you have drum or disc they are different!!! Hope this helps someway !!

My 1999 chevy tracker 78k miles rear drivers side leaks a fliud and makes a light scrubbing noise brakes and drums were replaced it may have something to do with 4wheel drive axle i was told has anyone had...


Is the fliud a lite clear brown/tan (brake fliud) or is it a dark black colour (gear oil)? It sounds like you have a brake fluid leak. Check your steel line on the rear axle and then remove the wheel and drum and check the wheel cylinder. Top up your Master cylinder and bleed the brakes. You might find the light scrubbing noise gone.
