Make sure all retaining clips are in place and the shoes are hard up against the brake cylinders. The most common reason is back off your handbrake cable all the way, lazy mechanics usually adjust the brakes from the hand brake and when its time to replace the shoes the handbrake cable has tension on the shoes, also make sure the normal adjuster is backed off all the way as well.

Sounds like the shoes are adjusted to far out, adjust the shoes in (closed) until you can fit the drum there should be just a slight drag when you rotate the drum.

How do i get the rear rotors off?


The DRUM you mean? the drum(s) have worn in a groove that allows the shoes to "hold" on to the drum. you have to beat and pry the drum off.......just work at slowly, stick a screwdriver and a small prybar and keep at till it lets go.....no biggie. just work it off. you cant wreck anything....sounds like new drums and shoes will be in the cards anyway....

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2.2L 4 Cylinder. I will be replacing my rear axle beam relatively soon, and was wondering what size drums and brake shoes i will be needing? I don't know if it...


First of all, you have no rear axle. Are you talking about the subframe or your hubs? As for drum size, I would go with the same size that are coming off. If you want to (and can) go bigger, you just need to make sure they have enough clearance inside your wheels. When ordering parts, you will be asking for: wheel cylinders, shoes, spring kit and drums. Note: the wheel cylinders you will only need to change if you are changing the SIZE of your drums or IF THEY LEAK. To see if they are good, pull your drums, smack your shoes from one side then to the other (using the palms of your hands) then back to center. Pull back the rubber boots and inspect for moisture. If they're dry, don't change the cylinders. If they're wet, they're leaking and need to be replaced. Now, if you do need to replace your wheel cylinder(s), you need to look in behind and assess the condition of the brake line fitting. If it looks rotten beyond all hell, you'll likely be into doing the brake line(s) as well. NOTE: when you actually do get into changin your brakes, do ONE SIDE AT A TIME. Drum brakes can be complex and if you take apart both sides then you have no reference as to how to put them back together!

89 ford mustang 5.0 i just finished bleeding my brakes and when i brake the rear wheels are not holding but just a few seconds then the pedal starts to ease down and rear wheels start turning . igot new...


If the shoes are adjusted to where the drum drags on the shoes while turning the drum,then the master cylinder is the most likely cause,some times the master will by-pass and cause this,and ,or will leak fluid out the rear of the master into the booster.

I have a ford f150 that i have redone the brakes but all i getting is a brake pedal and then goes to floor


Bleed your brakes, starting with Right rear, left rear, right front and ending with left front. You have air in the lines or a bad master cylinder. Bleeding is the cheaper of two options.

YOUR BRAKES SHOES NEED ADJUSTING THAT WHY ITS LOOSE.SEE YOU ADJUST THE BRAKE SHOES BY TURNING THE STAR WHEEL ON THE ADJUSTER SCREW UNTIL DRUM JUST SLIPS OVER THE SHOES.WHEN TURNING THE DRUM THE SHOES SHOULD NOT RUB IF THEY DO REMOVE THE DRUM AND BACK OFF STAR WHEEL A LITTLE BIT SO THEY DONT.

Rear brake grinding noise when pressing on brakes


The grinding noise in the rear brake drum means that brake shoes are warn out and the metal part of the shoe is touching the drum. You need to replace it asap as it will damage the inner part of the drum and than replacing shoes will not help without skimming or replacing the drum.

REAR BRAKES


i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
