If you hear a 'chirping while going down the road with your foot OFF the brake petal, your wear sensors are warning you that you need to replace the pads before they get down to the metal. If you hear a grinding noise WHEN you step on the brakes, you are too late-it is metal-on-metal and you will have to do the pads and at least have the rotor removed and 'turned' so it is flat again or replace the rotor-so a $50-$75 brake job becomes a $135-$175 (or more) brake job.

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.

Rear brakes 98 ford contuor cant get drum over new shoes.


The adjustor at the bottom of the shoes needs to be retracted to pull your shoes closer in. When you can just slip the drum over the shoes, it should be right. then to set the brake shoes (they are self-adjusting) just drive in reverse, hit brakes, reverse-hit brakes. This allows the adjustor to move the brakes out to the proper position.

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.

Right brake locks up when applied i have new brake shoes on brake shoes are on the right way


The longer brake shoe goes ot the back side of the vehicle. If you replaced the front brakes did you replace the rubber brake line going to the caliper? Some times they collapse inside creating a one way valve that will not allow the hydraulic pressure to release. You mention brake shoes - don't know if you mean pads as on the front of most vehicles. (some vehicles have disc brakes all around) You don't say if front or back brakes are the culprit. Hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks.

    The rear drum brakes:
    • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
    • Are a single-anchor type.
    • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
    • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
    • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
    • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
    When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
    The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

    REAR BRAKES


    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
