The rear brake drums are retained onto the spindle assembly with a cotter pin which locks a nut in place.Remove the cotter pin,and spin the nut off,then remove the washer behind the nut,and the brake drum assembly slides off.You must catch the outter wheel bearing as the assembly is sliding off.When reinstalling,the bearings need to be set with just about .001" of free play.Reinstalling TOO tight will burn up the bearings.

How do I break rear brake drum loose


un do the adjustment . remove any retaining screws in the face of the drum. Use a hammer and hit between the wheel studs. hit the drum back onto the axle flange If the brakes have been adjusted off then the drum will spring loose.

Tip

Rear drums stuck


When servicing vehicle with rear drum breaks it is very important to remember that you need to retract the shoes away from the drums

You will find an inspection plug in the rear of the backing plate

depending on the vehicle you will then have to turn either a start adjuster or compress a spring

even when the shoes are retracted you may still find it difficult to remove the drums due to rust

to help, use a large brass hammer and hit ONLY the flat surface of the drum being very careful NOT to hit the lug studs

you'll hear a very different sound when you finally break the drums free

Replace rear drums 1990 ford ranger


Remove rear wheels and then remove rear drums. You might have to pound on the drums with a hammer to break them loose fromthe axle shaft. Pound in between the lug nuts to loosen the drums. Inspect brake lining for wear, replace as necessary and then install new drums.

Since replacing rear pads, only both rear breaks are on, slightly truck will not roll freely wasupppppppp with that


If I am correct that truck has rear drum breaks? If this is the case the adjusters sound as if they were not brought in enough for proper clearance between the drums and shoes. If this is it I'd remove the rear drums and adjust for proper clearance (there should be no drag with drum breaks. If they are disk breaks I'd say the calipers are stuck and keeping tight on the discs; if this is the case I'd replace that calipers with new or rebuilt units.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

How do you change rear brake? cant get drum off saturn ion 04


First of all check the drum for two screws that go through the drum into the back bread plate, if not then take a hammer and hit the drum, be careful not to hit the lugs, you have to loosen the drum because over time it gets rusty and sticks to the lug nut plate that the lugs are attached too..........Hope this helps....any other questions just ask....

How do you get the rear brake drum off?


2003 dodge neon sxt

Here are the steps;
) Park on a level surface. safety
) Block all the other wheels. safety
) Put the vehicle gearshift in PARK. safety
) Release the handbrakes.
) Slightly break the rear wheel lug nuts seal while on ground. Just loosen do not remove.
) Jack up the rear wheel.
) Check to see the wheel will turn so you know the brake shoes are not binding against the drum.
) Now you can remove the lug nuts and wheel.
) Remove the drum. Some times the drum has frozen on with rust. You may have to use a hammer and hit along the drum near the outer edges to break it free.

Removing rear break drum from a 2006 chevy Equinox


You need to de-adjust your rear brakes and/or slacken off the park brake cable to remove the drum as the chances are the drum has a wear lip that the shoes are getting hung up on. ( first make sure there isn't a little retaining screw holding the drum on !..visible with the wheel removed)

Adjust rear brakes on a 2000 saturn ls


The rear breaks have self adjusters on them. If you put the car in reverse and pump the breaks this should adjust the breaks. These are drum breaks correct?
