SOURCE: 89 toyota corolla rear drum brake problems.....

there should be three or four large nuts on the inside of the drum. now these nuts are on realy good so it takes a lot of force to get it off if you have trouble getting it off you should get an extender to help with the force. Now with the break fluid going every were it could be cause you broke the metal tube.that is easy to replace. just follow it up and undo it.

sounds like you have it apart and not so sure about reassembly. If these are drum brakes try looking at the drum brake change videos on Youtube, ericthecarguy (ETCG) is a good one. Drum brakes are all basically similar with the main difference usually around self adjusters.

Tip

How to Replace Brakes on a Mercedes-Benz E320?


1) To replace the brakes in your car you need to turn the lug nuts for all the wheels.
2) You will have to turn it one-quarter counter clockwise with the help of tire wrench tool.
3) For this procedure the car needs to be lifted to a height. So Turn off the key, raise the car and support it with jack stands. Lift both the front and the rear of the car.
4) After that remove the lug nuts and wheels carefully.
5) Now above the brake assembly you will see the bolts holding caliper mounting. Remove the bolts. This will loosen the brake pads .so remove the brake pads carefully.
6) Insert the new brake pads and reassemble the brake caliper assembly. Assembly is the reverse of dis-assembly.
7) Refit all the parts properly which you removed while removing the old brake out.
8) Fit all the bolts carefully to their respective positions.
9) Fix the wheels and lug nuts. Tighten the bolts properly.
10) Then Lower the Mercedes to the ground from jack stands carefully.
11) Then turn the car ON and check the pressure on the brake system by applying the brakes.

Emergency brake not working after changing rear brake shoes on a 1990 gmc pickup 1500 series? And how do I release the emergency pedal from the floor? It won't release when you step on it?


Was the brake shoes replacement a DIY or professional job. If DIY, are you certain that you reassembled the brakes properly? Does the truck move at all? Does it feel as though the e-brake is applied? With the e-brake pedal to the floor, the truck should not move freely when the accelerator pedal is depressed. The emergency brake assemblies on both rear wheels are connected to a cable assembly that ultimately leads to the e-brake pedal. The cable has an adjustment point and a spring tensioner to prevent slack in the cable. First, crawl under and physically check the cable tension. If it's loose, either the cables are not connected to the rear wheels' brake assemblies, not connected properly, or the cable and/or pedal is damaged/broken. If the cable is tight - overly tight, but the e-brake is not holding the truck from moving, the e-brake levers attached to the shoes inside the brake drums are likely not installed correctly. Double check your installation and consider replacing the e-brake cable (as a precaution). As for the pedal, you may have to remove it in order to get the ratchet-locking mechanism to release.
Of course, if this was a professional job, call the shop and have them make it right. Good luck.

Refill port for a automatic transaxle for a 2006 ford freestyle


I had the same noise on my 06 SE FWD right rear wheel. It is more than likely the rear bearing. You have to replace the entire rear hub assembly. I bought a used part for nearly 1/2 the price of a new one on eBay. Fixed the problem and not to difficult to do yourself or about 1hr labor at your favorite repair shop. Had several estimates up to 2 1/2hrs. Don't go there, one hour is enough time. Lift car, pull wheel, undo caliper from brake assembly, pull rotor out of caliper, unbolt 4 bolts holding hub assembly to brake assembly, tap hub assembly from back side, should come off pretty easy. Install new hub assembly and reassemble in reverse order. I haven't done this on an AWD so I don't know if it is more complicated/difficult. Hope this helps.

Replacing rear hub/bearing assembly on 2003 taurus with drum brakes/abs


The wheel bearings in a Ford Taurus are located in the hub/bearing assembly. Replacing the hub/bearing assembly is a straightforward process -- remove the brakes, then the bearing, and reassemble.

Not enough space available for step by step instructions. Try this link:

How do i tighten my emergency brake?


Adjustment is at the emergency brake assembly, look for a nut on the end of a threaded cable. rack vehicle or rear wheels on jack stands. Pull e brake 2 or 3 clicks, spin both rear wheels and compare resistance. Slightly tighten nut about 1 turn and try to spin rear wheels. Do this until the rear wheels are locked in place. Reassemble e brake assembly, un rack vehicle, and enjoy your freshly adjusted e brake!

Need instructions for installing parking brake shoes on a 2001 Dodge 3500 pickup


This is a big job for such a small part. I suggest you repair/replace rotors, pads, and anything else back there while you are at it. You will need to remove both wheels on both sides, as well as the axles (I think). See my earlier post on Rear Rotor removal to see how this is done.

You will need a large spindle nut to remove the axles.

DISASSEMBLY:
Once you have access to the parking brakes inside the rotor hat:
1. Lock out the parking brake w/a pair of Vise grips (on the parking brake cable under the cab)
2. Disengage teh park brake cable from behind the rotor assembly to allow easier disassembly of the parking brake shoes.
3. Disassemble the rear park brake shoes.

REASSEMBLY:
1. Reassemble the rear parking brake shoes. This is a typical, small brake drum configuration. Do one side at a time - so you can see how to reassemble each small part. Keep the springs and parts oriented the same: front to front and interior to interior, etc.
2. Release the parking brake cable
3. Install the disc brake rotor(s)
4. Install the disc brake caliper(s)
5. Install tire & wheel assembly
6. Lower the vehicle

Remove & replace right turn signal bulb


The procedure is as follows:-- Working from the trunk:
1. locate the 2 retaining knobs (doohickeys that you fasten the trunk cargo net to) for the Hard plastic trunk liner near to and inside of the rear light assembly. Unscrew the knobs.
2. Pulling back the plastic liner, locate the 4 studs (threaded posts). 3 will be located vertically in a line, the fourth, outboard and lower. Using a 10mm wrench(small), remove 3 of the 4 nuts fastening the light assembly to the body. DO NOT remove the lowest nut of the 3 in a vertical line, as this does not fasten the light assembly. DON'T LOSE THE NUTS OR WASHERS.

Working from the rear of the car:
1. Hand pull the light assembly from the car body.
2. Remove bad lamp. Twist lamp socket and pull out of assembly. Pull lamp and replace with #3057.
Reassemble:
1. Test light prior to reassembly.
2. Ensure Gasket material for assembly and studs is intact, this keeps water/dust out and dampens movement (prevents rattling and increases the life of lamp).
3. Use Reverse instruction for reassembly.
-------------- The taillight/backup light/license plate light assembly is separate from the brake light/turn signal light assembly on the Buick LeSabre. No matter what rear bulb you have to replace, you must access the trunk area to do so. Open the trunk of the Buick LeSabre.Locate 7 nuts underneath the trunk lid (3 on each end of the trunk lid and 1 in the middle). Remove each one using a nut driver.Manipulate the trunk lid at chest level and gently pull the rear taillight assembly slightly away from the trunk lid.Locate the burned out bulb sockets and then remove the bulbs. Insert the new bulbs into the socket and test by turning on the lights before reassembling.Replace the tail light assembly by aligning the studs inside the predrilled holes in the trunk lid. Refasten the 7 nuts.Remove the cargo net if applicable to replace the brake and/or turn signal light.Unscrew the plastic wingnut that the cargo net is attached to. Pull back the trunk liner.Remove the 2 plastic wingnuts under the trunk liner.Pull the brake light assembly outward from the back of the LeSabre.Locate the socket of the burned out bulb and then turn counter clockwise 1/4-inch to release it from the assembly.Remove the old bulb from the socket and replace with a new one. Test the light before reassembling. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
