How to adjust the brake drum of ford escape 2002


all you do is adjust the brake adjuster while turning the drum until you begin to feel resistance of the drum turning. do not over adjust until you have to use too much effort to turn the drum. make sure both drums have similar resistance.

I broke two tire bolts on the rear tire how do we take off the brake drum to change them i tried banging it wont come off


Tapping on the sides is the way. Make sure the hand brake is off. Adjust the brake shoes to loose so that they are not in contact with the drum then tap the outside of the drum while pulling out the opposite side. Do that along the whole circumference of the drum and you will see it coming off.

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 do i remove the rear drums off a 206? is there an adjuster?


Almost all vehicles do have automatic brake adjuster and yours could have it too.
Try to release the adjuster from the rear incur plate if there s an allowance to do so, there may be a rubber protector to tht hole tht you will have to remove to get access to the adjuster inside.
Another way is to pour some water to the brake drum form outer side and thn hammer the brake drum all around , it should let go.
Or you may notice tht there are two holes on the brake drums and are threaded say to fit a 8mm bolt, get 2 pcs 8mm X 40 and bolt them in to those threaded holes tightening 2 to 3 turns equally and thn hammer it slowly , the brake drum should give way .
Hope this helps!

First check the brake shoes for thickness, if good, you can use a gauge for adjusting, if not avaiable, set the drum in place and behind the plate there is a small hole with a screw driver or a brake adjunting blade turn the inside ajuster and turn the drum, is better to do it with the tire on.

How to remove rear brake drums on 2002 frod escape


Behind the brake mounting plate there is a small hole with a rubber plug on the top portion.

Remove the plug. Look from the back of the vehicle and you will see a star wheel in the hole. Stick

a long skinny screw driver with a large blade and rotate it in the direction of risistance.(clockwise).

You will hear a spring poping noise. Rotate a few times and the drums will turn freely.

Then you can slide the drums off.

check to be sure emergency brake is not engaged ..and that cable is not frozen/rusted keeping it from releasing at baking plate into back of drum..often there is a knock out...(dimpled.stamped impression in backing plate) where the adjusting hole should be..you would need to slam that out (or in) with a heavy drift or screwdriver you are willing to hurt..then get to the star adjuster adn back it off
use lubricant around drum/backing plate area and at center (hub/drum) area where rust happens and pry with large screwdrivers 180 degrees apart between backing plate and drum wiggling and shifting positions around circumference...also a trick..open zerk fitting at that wheel cylinder and wiggle screwdrivers 'tween backing plate and drum to get shoes to close some....good luck
