How to replace break shoes - 1997 Honda CR-V

    Is the problem with the back or front brakes? If it is the from brakes did you remember to insert the inner and outer shims and apply the anti-squeal grease to the back of the pads. Were the caliper pins free to move in and out. A frozen pin(s) will cause sometimes cause noise if the caliper cannot move correctly. Did you check to see if there front disks where warped? This will also cause noise.

    Are the rear brakes drums or disks? If drums, are you sure you did not reverse the brake shoes. Are you sure that all the springs are properly connected and in good working order? Is the wheel cylinder on each side expanding when you depress the brake? Is the emergency brake adjustment set correctly? Are the rear brake drums warped? All or any of these can potentially cause noise.

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.

My brakes don't calibrate on their own, therefore they make a squeaking sound when I break how do I fix it

Check rear brakes for:
1. Brake shoe (Cracked or distorted)
2. Installation bolt (Loose)
3. Rear brake drum (Scored)
4. Brake shoe (Dirty).
5. Brake shoe (Glazed)
6. Tension or return spring (Faulty)
7. Anti-squeal shim (Damaged)
8. Shoe hold down spring (Damaged).
6. Apply a thin layer of multipurpose grease on the area between the back plate and the brake shoes by slightly pulling off the shoes with the help of a screw driver.

How are the rear break drums removed for break shoe replacement?

check and see if there is a lock ring over 1 of your wheel studs ,if not then the worn out shoe is holding it on and you have to get under the car with a screwdriver and turn the shoe adjuster back till you can remove the drum!

Reardrum brakes replacement 1998 ford taurus

First back off adjusters. Also do one side at a time so you can see how to replace the shoes in case you forget or take a picture. Sides are the exact opposite. Use a break spring push tool to remove shoe hold down springs. Make sure you do not press the brake peddle down while doing repair or you will have to bleed the breaks. Remove shoes & hardware. Use a water hose to clear away break dust. If there is a ridge you should have the drums turned on a lathe or replaced. Purchase a new spring kit for both sides. In stall in reverse order. If you have trouble removing the drums, you may have to back off the shoe adjusters with a shoe adjuster tool or large common screwdriver. Once all back together readjust the brakes & put tires back on. Use latex gloves as brake dust is highly toxic. Good luck!

Grinding sound when step on break

Sounds like your brake pads/shoes need replaced. When the brake linings wear out, you have metal to metal when you step on your brake pedal. You may have to replace rotors/drums due to severe scarring.
