I have a 2005 1500 Z71 4x4 and I can't get the passanger rear brake drum off...Is there something special about getting the drum to come off? It started leaking fluid this morning and thus I have no...


the fluid is brake fluid frond the wheel cylinder...the reason why u cant get the drum off is either a rust lip on the drum or the rear brake shoes have ground into the brake drum...u need to adjust the self adjusting star wheel inward to loosen the rear shoes allowing the drum to be removed...on the back side of the drum is what is called a backing plate there will be a oval hole with a rubber plug in it remove it an use a brake spoon to de adjust the rear shoes by turning the brake spoon up ..if u dont have the oval hole u will need to cut it out of the backing plate there may be 2 oval stamps in the backing plate, cut out the one that is on the right when u r looking at the backing plate

How to adjust rear brakes shoes on toyota corrolla 1999


the shoes on drum brakes should auto adjust by backing up and applying pressure to the brake pedal (you may hear a clicking noise from the springs on the adjustment stars as they turn). If this does not work, the mechanism may be broken, aligned improperly or stuck by corrosion. Most drum brake assemblies have an access hole in the drum or backing plate to make manual adjustments, comment back to me if u have these access holes and I will walk you through the procedure...(check your shoe lining thickness as you may just need new brake shoes)

Cant get the rear brake drum off over the shoes


Behind the backing plate of the wheel look for the adjusting hole . It is at the bottom end and has a rubber plug in it. Remove plug and use a brake spoon of screw driver and turn little gear looking thing inside hole. This will pull brake shoe away from drum. It will turn for what seems a long time but just keep going until it stops. Then try to remove drum may have to use hammer. If not turn in other direction until it stops and try again to remove drum, with a hammer until it comes off

Rear brake drums won't come off


Try penetrating oil around center hole and 8mm holes if rust is present. Then, pound hard on the radius edge between face of drum and top/bottom braking surface.

If no luck, you might need to back off the shoe adjustment rod located behind an oblong hole on the bottom of the backing plate.

Youll see small teeth if you view through the oblong hole(might have a rubber plug in it)
Put a screwdriver in the hole and try to ratchet the teeth in one direction or another (it will only go in one direction) once you see which way it moves, usually with a corresponding "click", Stop........you need to turn it the other way.

To do this, you must take a small thin screwdriver or ice pick and poke it in past the small toothed gear until it hits a surface. Put more pressure and you should feel it move.
This is the ratcheting arm that kept you from moving the gear in the other direction.

Now you should be able to turn the toothed wheel in the opposite direction to loosen the brake shoes from the braking surface of the drum.

The 8mm bolt holes are there to help pull the drum, but, if the shoes have worn into the drum a lot, it leaves an edge on the inner edge of the drum which wont let the drum slide past the shoes, which is why you need to back off the adjustment rod to pull the shoes away from the drum to allow it to be removed.

If all else fails, the shoes are held against the backing plate by two pins, held in place by small coil springs and keeper plates.

If you look at the backing plate, you should see two small circular discs at the roughly 3 oclock and 9 oclock positions. These are the heads of the keeper pins which hold the shoes on to the backing plate. Take a small and preferably sharp chisel, and shear these small discs off the backing plate. Now, you should be able to pry off the drum and survey the damage. You will need to replace these parts. Ask your parts dealer for a "spring kit" for the rear drum brakes of your particular vehicle.

Hope this helps

Raise the Tahoe's rear end on jack stands. Block the front wheels and remove both of the rear wheels. Release the parking brake. Remove the brake drum, cutting off the pressed metal washers with a strong cutting tool.
If the drum won't come off because the drum shoes have worn into the drum, retract the shoes by removing the access plug from the backing plate. Push the lever off the adjuster star wheel with a small screwdriver and turn the star wheel with another screwdriver.
Clean off the entire assembly with break cleaner, using a drain pan to catch the residue. Never blow away brake dust with compressed air. Detach the spring from the adjuster level from within the drum by gripping it Detach the spring from the adjuster level from within the drum by gripping it shoe. Remove the trailing shoe and adjuster lever. Remove the adjuster screw assembly. Pull away the retractor spring and remove the leading shoe. Disconnect the trailing shoe from the parking brake lever.

Clean off the backing plate and lightly lubricate its shoe contact areas with high-temperature grease. Clean the adjuster screw assembly and lubricate the threads and socket end. Inspect the condition of the drum itself. If there are any cracks, score marks, deep scratches or discolored areas that can't be removed with an Emory cloth, have the drum resurfaced at an automotive machine shop.

Attach the new trailing shoe to the parking brake lever, position it on the backing plate and install the retractor spring's end into its hole. Re-install the adjuster screw assembly, making sure it engages with the leading shoe. Lubricate and install the adjuster level on the trailing shoe.
Place the trailing shoe on the backing plate, making sure it properly engages with the adjuster screw assembly, and insert the retractor spring into its hole within the trailing shoe. Place the actuator spring within its hole in the leading shoe, stretch the spring and connect it to the adjuster level.
Install the drum back on the Tahoe. Turn the adjuster screw's star wheel until the drum slips over the shoes without rubbing them. Reconnect the wheels once the brakes are changed on both sides and lower the vehicle.

Good luck and go for a test drive. If you could find a empty parking lot, go in reveres and do a full brake application a 7 to 10 times. This will self adjust the brakes to ensure that both side's are adjusted the same.

Hope this helps.
Regards,

Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.

  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  2. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub and remove the wheel.
  3. Mark the relationship of the drum to the hub and pull the drum from the brake assembly.

If the brake drums have been scored from worn linings, the brake adjuster must be backed off so the brake shoes will retract from the drum. The adjuster can be backed off by inserting a brake adjusting tool through the access hole provided. In some cases the access hole is provided in the brake drum. A metal cover plate is over the hole. This may be removed by using a hammer and chisel.
To install:
  1. Align the mark on the drum to mark on hub and install drum
  2. Align the mark on the wheel to mark on drum and install wheel
  3. Adjust brake lining as needed. Pump brakes

Back drum brakes


Remove the rubber plug at the back of the backing plate. Take a brake adjusting tool or screw driver through the hole and turn(pry) the brake adjuster to back off the brake shoes. There is a ridge worn in to the brake drum and that is keeping the brake drum on, even if you can wiggle it.
