If you have a small sledgehammer you will just have to beat them off especially if you are going to replace the hub. I had to do this on my windstar

I have a 23 t bucket and i cant get a brake pedal.when i bought it had very little brake so i replaced rear shoes and cylinders,front pads and calipers,all new lines and the master cylinder


Once you have bled the air from the brake lines,clamp off the front brake hoses carefully.Does the pedal feel better now?
Then the pad /caliper fit is allowing too much play.Is the pedal the same?Then clamp the rear hose and try the pedal.Is it fine with the rear hose clamped?If so we now know the problem is at the rear brakes.One common low pedal rear brake cause is brake shoes that do not fit the drums.Remove the drums and look at the shoes,are they showing contact wear fully or just in the middle of the shoe?Remove a shoe and place it in the drum.Can you rock the shoe against the drum surface?Once drums have been resurfaced,the shoes will not fit fully against the drum allowing the shoe the flex when applying pressure to it and this can easily create a low soft brake pedal. Of course rear brake adjustment must be correct once brake shoe contact is correct.To correct brake shoe contact,have your shoes re arc-ed to fit resurfaced drums or install new drums.Don't overlook brake master cyl /brake pedal push rod adjustment too.

Brake drum


If this is a rear rotor having a Emergency drum or simply a brake drum, it is often necessary to force the Emergency brake closed to eliminate clearance problems.
With some vehicles, the hub will rust and the brake drum or rotor will be bonded together. Penetrating oil, rubber hammer, and rotating the drum will help the oil spread behind the fixture.
Sometimes you need some heat.

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

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

I am working on a 2000 jeep wrangle sport. i cant get to my rear brakes because of a cover. how do i get that cover off so i can get to my rear brakes


That "cover" is the rear brake drum, part of the braking system. Jeep Sports come with drum rear brakes, not disc brakes. Once the lug nuts and tires are off, the drum will jut pull off. It may take some gentle force (hammer taps on the rear side) but there is nothing else securing it other than the rim and lug nuts.

I have a 2002 ford focus and I cant get the rear drum off the back


IF IT IS DRUM BRAKES,YOU WILL HAVE TO GO BEHIND THE REAR DRUM AND ADJUST THE BRAKES TO ALLOW YOU TO REMOVE DRUM,PROBABLY A SPRING OR A ADJUSTER IS HUNG UP,IF YOU STILL CAN'T YOU WILL HAVE TO PRY THE DRUM OFF WITH A PRY BAR,ONCE YOU HAVE IT OFF REPLACE ALL HARDWARE AND SHOES.

What kind of brakes are on this car (front and rear)?


It depends on model. Most cars have disc brakes in front and drum brakes in rear. Some cars have disc brakes front and rear. Look through the front wheels, you will see the front disc, now look at the rear, if it looks like the fronts, you have 4 wheel disc brakes, if you cant see anything behind the wheel, it has rear drum brakes.

Cant fit drums over pads


You need to retract the brake shoes, via the center adjuster mechanism. As your old brake wore, the adjuster moved the shoes outward. Simply move the adjuster to retract the shoes, then slide the drum on. Then, readjust the rear shoes.
