I agree.
These drums are very hard to get off. Best way for me is to tap on the back of the drum at the 12 oclock, 3 oclock, 6oclock, 9 oclock repeatedly. Do this while pulling on the drum 180 degrees from where you are tapping. Takes some time, but they will come off. Again- very tight.

Rear drum brakes


Sounds like brake shoes are knocking. Try backing up while pumping brakes or using the emergency brake a few times to tighten up shoes. If those don't work you may have to manually adjust shoes with star wheel or maybe defective (out of round) drum

92 riviera rear tire wont rotate


Does it have rear drum or disk brakes. Remove the right rear tire. If you have drum brakes, the brake material may have separated and got wedged against the drum.

Best way to remove rear brake drums on an 06 equinox


Hello, there is two ways to remove the drums. First way is to use a hammer and tap the back side of the drum as you rotate it untill it becomes free. Second way is to use a brake spool to back the shoes off, on the back side of the drum is a small opening it may be covered by a piece of rubber. Just pop that out, using the brake spool rotate the star wheel key till the shoes are backed off the drum than it should come right off.

2003 windstar rear brake problem.


Take the lug bolts and try putting the broad side against the drum without the tire rim. It sounds like the rear brakes are adjusted too tight. Also check the emergency brakes which may have to be adjusted looser now that the linings are new and thicker.
If you can run the lugnuts against the drum with the broadside hitting the drum you will duplicate what is happening with the tire rim. You will be able to see better and can adjust the brakes without the tire in the way.

Removing rear break drum from a 2006 chevy Equinox


You need to de-adjust your rear brakes and/or slacken off the park brake cable to remove the drum as the chances are the drum has a wear lip that the shoes are getting hung up on. ( first make sure there isn't a little retaining screw holding the drum on !..visible with the wheel removed)

05 Equinox not able to remove right rear brake drum


Hiya...
Most rear brake-shoe design take some time to adjust than disc brakes...
If you have a special brake adjustment tool that your local automotive store sells, get this tool and pull out the rubber grommet plug, insert the brake adjustment tool until you 'feel' or hear the sound of 'skipping' on the brake self-adjuster spool inside as you wiggle /adjust the tool inside....(push it inside to get a firm feel that you can 'spin' it)
Try to push the tool downward or upward to check if that'll spin the brake self-adjuster part smaller to allow the brake shoes to 'shrink' which should allow you easy removal of the rear brake drum as you wiggle it out.

Be sure not to breathe in toxic brake dust upon successful brake drum removal.
