Your emergency brake is off, right?-had to ask, if so you need a heavy hammer (like a 4 lb sledge) and hit the drum where the shoes are, get a heavy flat bladed screw driver and wedge it between the drum and backing plate and pry it in a few different locations-use WD40 on the center of the drum where it fits around the axle, that can help, let it soak and keep trying to drive it off-as long as your brake is off, it will come off, it is just seized on due to rust, being adjusted a tad too tight, and years of being on there.

How do I get rear brake drum off?


You should jack up securely the rear end, and then remove the lugnuts to the wheels and remove the wheel.

Then, you may need a heavy hammer to tap on the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions of the rear brake drum to loosen it up.

How do you remove the rear brake drums


  1. Remove the lug nuts and the wheel.
    1. One way to remove the drum is to tap the drum lightly with a mallet to free the drum if resistance is felt. Sometimes brake drums are stubborn. If the drum is difficult to remove, perform the following:
    1. Insert the end of a bent wire (a coat hanger will do nicely) through the hole in the brake drum and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster.
    2. Reduce the brake shoe adjustment by turning the adjuster bolt with a brake adjuster tool. The drum should now be loose enough to remove without much effort.

      The Brake Adjustment can be access on Rear of the BackPlate !

    1989 chevy 3500 4x4 454 rear brake drum removal. Does the axle bolts need to be removed


    Can you tell me which type of axle you have?

    Full Floating Axles To remove the drums from full floating rear axles, use the Axle Shaft Removal & Installation procedure in Section 7. Full floating rear axles can readily be identified by the bearing housing protruding through the center of the wheel.


    Semi-Floating Axles
    1. Raise and support the rear end on jack stands.
    2. Remove the wheel.
    3. 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 that 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.

    You may have to back off the automatic adjuster before you can pull the drum from the brake assembly

    To install, reverse the removal procedure.

    here is a diagram on how to remove your brake drum. please do not forget to rate and comment about your experience with fixya today.

    Removal & Installation
    CAUTION 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. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
    2. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

      CAUTION Use of a brake drum puller or a torch is not recommended. Brake drum distortion can result.

      NOTE If the brake drum is rusted to the axle shaft pilot diameter, tap the center of the brake drum between the wheel studs.
    3. Remove the brake drum.
    4. If equipped, remove the brake drum retaining clips.
    5. If the brake drums will not come off, follow these steps.
    6. Move the brake shoe adjusting lever off the brake adjuster screw.
    7. Loosen the brake shoe adjuster screw nut by adjusting the nut upward.
    8. Using the special tool, 134-R0191, measure the brake drum inside diameter.
    9. Install a new brake drum if the maximum inside diameter exceeds the specification shown on the outside of the brake drum.

    To install:

    WARNING Whenever a wheel is installed, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign material present on the mounting surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, causing loss of control. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

    1. Clean the wheel hub mounting surface and wheel pilot.
    2. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

    i think your aware of how to change the brakes if im right and your problem is the rusted drum doesnt want to come off the only way to get the old drum off is to remove adjuster plug from behind drum dustshield and adjust the shoes so that there not even close to the braking area of the drum then try and wiggle the drum off of the assembly if it is not coming off then you need to use the old nylon hammer on the drum and i mean you must hit the drum from side to side trying by hand to wiggle the drum off its a tight fit and you need to strike the drum on the face not on the fins not wanting to damage with persistance and care and patience you will eventually be able to remove the drum to service brakes take care and good luck with it
