the only difference between a disc and a drum brake is that with a disc brake is that the brake pads are being squeezed into the disc to stop and with a drum brake the brake pads are being pushed on the inside of the drum to stop the vehicle
The disc hub usually fitted to the front wheels has two break pads per wheel which press against the sides of the disc using hydraulic pressure to stop the vehicle the pad wear is easy to see when the wheel is removed. The drums hubs are on the rear wheels have break shoes which press on the inner lining of the drum to stop the vehicle and are not visible even with the wheel of till you also take the drum off. They are not the same.
Hi, The nut can be reused 4 times before renewal is required. The tightening torque is 235 Nm. If possible rotate the assembly in the opposite direction to tighten direction whilst tightening to aviod bearing damage. This applies to both disc and drum brake set up's. Hope this helps.
if you take the rear wheel hub out the bearing should come easy enough without any tool, but make sure and check the bearing runner, where the bearing sits. if dat does not work you will need to press the bearing out. make sure and use a lot of greese on the new bearing
If the humming is more pronounced when you turn corners it is one of the wheel bearings.Listen to determine which side. They can be done easily DIY but only with some mechanical knowledge.The old bearing casings need to be removed from the hub using a small chisel or drift. The new ones need to be pressed back into the hub ideally but can be done using a hammer and a suitale sized socket.
