Loosen up the hand brake, bang on it with a hammer a few times.
If it still doesn't come off, some drum has holes drilled in them, put a bolt through it & start
turning, it should come off slowly.

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!

SOURCE: changing rear brake pads

For front brake pads replacement you need only usually wrench set, inclusive 7 mm allen key also.
But for rear brake pads replacement you need obligatory a special caliper piston pressing tool, in order to press back rear caliper piston with parking brake automatic adjustment!!!
For front brake pads. First you must verify yours front brake disc diameter: 280 mm or 288 mm. (On my car y have 288 mm). After that you can buy the brake pads (with wear sensor). For change front brake pads you must raise vehicle, remove wheels, extract the retaining spring of the caliper, and remove the caliper as follow:
1. Do not disconnect the brake hose from the caliper, and do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose!
2. Remove top and bottom caps (on back side of the caliper) for access to guide pins, then unbolt and remove them from the brake carrier. Remove the caliper.
3. Now you must thoroughly clean the brake calipers (free of grease).
4. Remove outer brake pad from brake carrier.
5. Pull inner brake pad out of brake caliper piston.
6. Check up the brake fluid level on the reservor, and emptying if neccessary!
7. Push piston back into brake caliper housing.
8. Install inner brake pad (with expanding spring) in brake caliper piston. (Arrow marked on pad - if exist, must point in direction of brake disc rotation when vehicle is moving forward).
9. Install outer brake pad into brake carrier.
10. Bolt brake caliper housing to brake carrier using two guide pins. Tightening torque is 25 Nm.
11. Install both caps.
12. Insert retaining spring into brake caliper housing. Important: Depress the brake pedal firmly several times while the car is stationary so that the brake pads adjust to their normal operating positions!!! Check brake fluid level and top up if neccessary!!!

Please rate my response. Thanks!

How to unglaze glazed drum breaks


Rear Drums & shoes should be changed at the same time. The same goes for the front pads & rotors. Usually the drums & rotors are pre-cut but I ask at the counter if they need cutting because I have ended up with uncut squealers once or twice and found the drum needed to be re-cut due to minute warp-age. If the grinding is the same as before the brakes were changed then all th e brakes need changing not just the ones you thought needed it. Quiet pads & brakes have a beveled edge instead of an abrupt 90 degree angle. Ceramics tend not to squeak. As for un-glazing, in the old days we ran 60 grit sand paper along the wear surface until it was sufficiently scuffed to stop the squeal. It didn't work for very long & usually the squeal worked itself out with wear in a week or 2. good luck.

I need my back breaks done. Im not sure if it needs break pads, drums, rotars, disks or what?


If you had listed make, model, and year, I would know what setup you have on the rear. First find out if it has disc brakes or drum brakes. Purchase the correct brake pads or shoes that fit your vehicle. Once you remove the old pads or shoes you will know if the rotor or drum needs turning or replacing.

Brake pads


if they are both disc pads then it would be the same but if you have drum brakes at the rear then it would be different.

Its easier than you think. To open the caliper you simply apply pressure and turn the piston, like screwing it in. You must push it in at the same time or it doesn't work.
