rear brake shoe removal

Recommended Posts

Ive started doing my rear parking brake cables. i pulled the drum and found where the cable connects but have no clue from there on, i think i need to remove the rear brake shoe. But i don't know how. any info would be of great help, if anyone has pics (with descriptions) or a how to it would be of help as well.


As always, thanks in advance

1) Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheels and brake drum.

Remove "U" clip and washer from parking brake lever pivot pin. Place

Wheel Cylinder Clamp (J-8002) over wheel cylinder.

2) Remove primary and secondary shoe return springs, holddown

spring and retainers and pins. See Fig. 7 or 8. Remove selfadjuster

lever, adjuster and adjuster spring from brake shoes.

3) Remove brake shoes. Disconnect parking brake cable from

parking brake lever, and remove lever.
