Not really. The rear-brake pads rotate inside the rear-wheel drum. Once you knock out the rear-axle bolt, you then bend-out the rear wheel. That way you could avoid having to take out the exhaust.
If you have to lay the bike down on its side to facilate the wheel removal, do so.

The rear passenger wheel is making a grinding /rubbing noise is it an easy job to repair also there seems to be more brake dust on that wheel is this the cause of the problem due to the wheel bearing ps...


This definitely sounds like a wheel bearing going out, or possibly the rear brake shoes/pads are worn out. Either way you will have to take the wheels off to determine the cause of the noise. Changing the wheel bearing or brake shoes/pads is not that difficult of a job and with the right instructions, you will be back on the road in no time. For detailed information on changing the wheel bearing, please go here. If it turns out to be a break shoe/pad, then please go here for detailed instructions on changing brake pads/shoes.

Corolla 2000 brakes, I did change master cylinder,


System may have air in it bleed from farthest wheel to closest.
If rear shoes are out of adjustment re adjust them
Possible but most pads require a "bedding in" 20 stops 50 to25mph or so.

Rear brake lock up on KTM LC4


When was the last time you checked/changed your rear brake pads? This isn't really easy to miss, with the reduced braking power and different sound when braking, but if you have worn the pads so much, that the pad's metal surface (or even the cylinder itself) has gone out and stuck into disc, you could have a problem... For starters, remove your brake caliper, and have a look inside, this can be done easily.

It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.
