You need to de-adjust the brake shoes. The rod which screws into itself and holds the shoes apart is part of the auto adjustment system and must be screwed together to allow the shoes to return to their original position to let the drum pass over them. Make sure that the auto adjuster finger is correctly positioned on the knurl. When the drum is replaced, adjust this adjuster until the shoes just touch the drum when it is spun by hand. This might not be the exactly the same as your brakes but should give you an idea if what I mean above.

Vibration when braking


holden commodores are know for vibration when braking know as brake shudder.

To correct this replace brake pads and machine disc rotors .
Clean hubs before refitting disc rotors .
Check and make sure you can achieve the run-out within holden specifications .
To achieve the correct run-out Front disc need to be under 0.5
and 0.8.
When doing run-out place front disc back on hub once all surface areas have been cleaned .
secure disc on hub with wheel nut just even so its all flush.
Then use a dial gauge and measure run if you can achieve on 1st stud move around all studs if u still cant get the front within 0.5 replace hub.
follow same procedure for rear but remember rear is0.8..

Possible when the HUB was changed that the sensor connection was damaged or was not taken care off . So please recheck with your work and the fault will be seen.

Front wheel bearing replacement. how big a job? are abs hub and non-abs hub interchangeable?


technically ,,,, theres no abs hub or non abs hub.... All of the ABS components are up by the master cylinder... What you are seeing is a Speed sensor ... just unbolt brake caliper and remove the 3 or 4 bolts that hold on the hub assembly on ... and reverse order to put back on .... and as long as you dont loosen the brake line you wont have to bleed the brakes .... should only take a hour or two ...

Change rear wheel bearing is it hard to do ford fusion 03


Lightly losen the lug nuts with the tires on the the ground. Jack up the car and remove the tire according to the owner's manual. Make sure to block the wheels. After the tire is removed, release the park brake. Support the car on jack stands. Remove four bolts from the rear of hub. The hub nut will be 29 mm - it is important that you have a tight fit if you attempt to remove the nut.

At this point you MAY have to loosen or remove the remove the emergency brake cable. Either way the hub is ready to be removed. The front of the hub (with the lugs) and the bearing will come out and the back plate and brake shoes will remain in place.

Once you get it off, you may either purchase a hub assembly (which includes the hub with a new bearing in place ready-to-go) or take the existing hub and a replacement bearing to an auto machine shop which can easily remove the old bearing and install the new bearing. Using extreme care you can remove the old one using bearing pullers and prybars and replace the bearing using large deep sockets or a properly sized piece of steel pipe.

Since you have the hub apart, you should inspect the brake shoes and (brake) wheel cylinders and replace them as needed. Replace brake parts on both sides if you replace them on either.

Put the hub back into the brake shoes. It may only line up one way. Finger tighten ALL FOUR of the bolts and then tighten. Replace the tire and remove the lifting equipment. Start slowly so the brakes can readjust!

Rear brake disc replacement


are your brake pads squeezing the rotor? are your brakes disc or drum? in order to replace pads on disc brakes you need to unbolt the caliper. If you have drum brakes make sure your car is secured and make sure your parking brake isn't on...
