Make sure u got the rite size and thickness of shoes for it,then make sure the cylinders are pressed in all the way,then try to fit them on.sometimes the shoes ware the drum down and create a lip at the end of the drum too.i found a dremmel tool with a sanding head works to remove some of it without taking to much off with lite pressure.

One thing to check...on rear shoes, there is a short pad shoe and a long pad shoe....the short pad shoe goes towords the front of the car...the long pad shoe goes to the rear of the car....its ok to use old hardware as long spings look ok and not streched..

Emergency brake backed off as well? Shoes on properly? Primary (smaller lining) nearest to front of vehicle?

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.

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.

Ok, my 2002 Dodge Neon is having brake problems we replaced the rear master cylinders and brake bad. But, the rear right drums catches the brakes when you free spin the drum with your hand at one point. We...


You need to manually adjust the brakes after putting new brake shoes on. The automatic adjuster has adjusted for wear in the old shoes which will make the new shoes too tight.

Cant get the drum off


have u backed off the brake shoes? the adjuster is at the rear of the brake drum on the bottom of backing plate, it may also just be rust that is keeping it on the axle face, soak it with penatrating oil and let it set overnight then try again, tap from side to side and then up and down on drum, it will come loose just take your time.

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.

CAN'T GET REAR DRUM OFF


Try placing the tip of a screwdiver in the adjuster and hitting it with a hammer,this will usually free it up,another solution is to cut the button end off on the shoe holddowns on the back of the brake plate,remember that the dust in the drum is probably asbestos,so protect yourself with a dust mask or douse it with brake cleaner.Hope this helps.

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
