I need to replace rear brakes for 2001 saturn

Your car came with 2 types of brakes for that year here is the DRUM BRAKE REMOVAL. I will have to send it in 2 posts since the text is too long to send it in 1 post. Please vote if this helps you:
  • Remove the wheels and brake drums.
  • Remove the lower return and adjuster springs using a universal brake spring remover. Do not over extend the springs or they will damaged and will need to be replaced.
  • Compress the leading brake shoe hold-down cup and spring while removing the pin from the rear of the backing plate. Release spring compression, then remove the hold-down cup and spring.

    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....
