Copy and paste this into your search window: 2002 ford ranger rear brake diagram


sounds like you have it apart and not so sure about reassembly. If these are drum brakes try looking at the drum brake change videos on Youtube, ericthecarguy (ETCG) is a good one. Drum brakes are all basically similar with the main difference usually around self adjusters.

Replacing rear hub/bearing assembly on 2003 taurus with drum brakes/abs


The wheel bearings in a Ford Taurus are located in the hub/bearing assembly. Replacing the hub/bearing assembly is a straightforward process -- remove the brakes, then the bearing, and reassemble.

Not enough space available for step by step instructions. Try this link:

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

How to and what I need to repair the rear brakes


Remove wheel,hit Brake drum with hammer and remove the drum. Take a close picture of what your dealing with. Take it apart and reassemble it like the picture you took. Put Drum back on when assembled. Buy a brake spoon from behind the drum you will see a rubber plug . Pull t of and use a brake spoon to open the drum shoes until they just start lightly rubbing. Once you have achieved that? You are all set.

What can be causing the rear brakes to lock up? This happens usually only after a rain.


you need to have, or clean and adjust the rear brakes yourself if you wanna do it yourself, remove the wheel, and brake drum sometimes you have to tap on the drum with a hammer, and of course can't have the ebrake on. after the drum is off spray the inside of it, and the brakes with some brake cleaner available at any parts house until clean. then take sand paper, and scuff up the shoes and inner drum surface reassemble and it should be good for a year or 2 unfortunately its the nature of the beast replacing brake shoes with high quality expensive shoes does help though

How do i change my rear hubs


Loosen the rear lug nuts, jack up the car, remove the rear wheels, remove the brake drums, remove the brake shoes and hardware, remove the 4 bolts holding the hubs in. Bolt in the new hubs, reassemble the brake shoes and hard ware, put the brake drums on, put the wheels on and snug the lug nuts, lower the car, tighten the lug nuts.

Do you have to remove the axels to change the brake shoes on a 94 chev 1 ton?


Yes, the axles have to come out, then the wheel bearings, and finally the drums will come off. Be careful when pulling the drums, pull them straight off the housing, do not allow them to drop on the housing tube, doing so will damage the inner wheel seal. When reassembling the bearings back in the drums just wipe grease on the outside of the bearing, do not pack them with grease. After the drum is back on put a squirt of rear end dope in the hub before putting the axle back in, top up the level in the rear differential, this is where the rear bearings get their lube from.

Rear left tier


Tire* -- I don't know if I would suggest doing this yourself, but try taking the tire off, (this requires you to jack the left rear *tire* off of the ground), and checking to make sure your brake is disengaged, meaning that neither the drums (or pads if it is the sport neon) nor the parking brake is still engaged. If neither are, you have a more serious problem on your hands, but if they are engaged, remove the drums and reassemble. Make sure your springs are in the right spot.

Need assistance on how to change the rear wheel bearings on a ford escort 1996 n reg


If its got drums its no problem, remove the wheel, take off the dust cap in the center of the drum,remove the split pin and the center nut 24mm, i think.
Take off the drum, clean out the old grease from the bearing, and take out the roller bearings, then you need to knock out the bearing races with a punch.
Use the old races to knock the new ones in, grease the new bearings and reinsert to the races, reassemble to to rear hub.
Dont overtighten the nut, nipped up a bit and backed off will do
