It would be nice to know what vehicle you have but genneraly pretend you are changing a tire---after the wheel is off most rear drums are loose and if your are not carfull it will fall on your toes--a slight exageration but if it won't just pull off hit the edge with a hammer to loosen the rusted ce…nter-----some have a drum and hub assembly which would require a little more work to remove the nut and lock washer before the drum assembly will come off (MORE)
Answer . \nPurchase a repair manual at most parts stores, ( around $12 ) for detailed instructions on this and many other repairs. Special tool to compress caliber is required for this repair.
If you purchase at the dealer it will cost between $300 and $400CAD Junkyard it will cost you between $50 and $100?
Answer . \nIf the car has drum brakes take the tire off and on the back of the hub at the bottom there is a small slit (it may have a rubber bootin it) take the boot out. inside ther is a small gear with teeth on it take a flat head screw driver and put it on the teeth and turn the gear up or dow…n to loosen it till the drum will come off.

Safely raise and support the rear of the vehicle. Remove the center nut (22mm or 24mm - not sure). Remove the Phillips drum retaining screws. Remove the drum. Remove the hand brake mechanism springs noting their position very carefully. Wrong installation of these can cause not only no parking-brak…e application but also weak braking application. Remove the remaining springs. Do not disconnect any lines or disassemble the cylinder or subsequent bleeding will be required. The brake shoes are usually the same size. However, should one be a little longer it should go to the back side of the backing plate. Reverse procedure to install and do be careful with positioning springs in same areas. Use other side as reference. (MORE)
Answer . Simply open your trunk and there should be a panel on each side (left and right) that is inline with the brake light on the outside of the car. There should be 1 or 2 screws holding this panel in place. Unscrew the panel completely (so as not to bend it when trying to replace the bulb if… you left it in place) and take it off. Then simply unplug the burnt out bulb and replace with the recommended brake bulb (can get at any auto parts store or even walmart) and cover back up, making sure the screws are in place again. It's a lot easier than replacing the headlights. :0). Hope this helps.. If you have an 03 or newer that doesn't work. The third brake light is a long LED light in the spoiler. I can't figure out how to remove it yet but I will and I'll be back. (MORE)
\n . \n Answer \n. \n . \nto remove the door handle you need to remove the door panel, which has 5 screws around it. One is under the handle you have to pry the cover off with a flat head (THERE IS A SLOT FOR THE FLAT HEAD) after that make sure your window is all the way UP NOT DOWN. there …you should be able to see the 2 10mm bolts holding the handle bracket. You should be able to see the two metal rods push them until you can slip the plastic clips off and there you have a door handle from a 00 to 06 hyundai tiburon sitting in your hand (MORE)
Remove the caliper, 2 bolts, then the bracket bolts, 2 bolts. Thread an 8.8M screw into the rotor and keep screwing it in until the rotor pops off. If you don't have such a screw handy, you can bang on the rotor with a hammer (although this process is much more aggressive in nature and it is possibl…e to damage a wheel bearing while banging away at the rotor). I've posted some videos to help illustrate the process: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOqwwkoG0Y8 (part 1) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k0QBj0RJ7F4 (part 2 (MORE)

A few basic brake tools would help you. Your local auto parts store can supply you with what you will need for tools. I would recommend taking apart one side at a time so you can use the other side for reference during assembly. Also remember the long shoe faces to the rear and the short shoe faces …to the front.

I only paid $240 with my private mechanic. Call him 818-848-9404. He is a very honest and trusted mechanic ever!
Lift the car, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers andremove the old brake pad. Put in the new brake pad, put the brakeshoe/caliper back, put the tire back on the car, and lower the carto the ground.
Remove wheel. Remove caliper (2 bolts) be careful not to damage hose-use coat hanger or something to support the weight. remove cap from middle of rotor. Remove cotter pin/nut in center (1), pull directly towards you. Bearings (2)should be removed inspected & repacked. Those & rear seal can go on ne…w one. Reverse the procedure. Do not over torque castle nut when you reinstall-you will fry your bearings if you do. Check torque specs since these can be as little as 8# (which is next to nothing-hence the cotter pin) You should use new brake pads with a new rotor so they wear in together. These just clip onto the caliper. You will have to separate the pads manually to open them up to slip caliper back on. (MORE)
It depends on what kind of Saab it is, but the principals are mainly the same. Just yesterday I changed the rear brake pads on my 2003 Saab 9-3 and it was really easy. Are you just changing pads or are you changing the rotors as well? I guess I need a little more info before I can help you out. Get… back to me i would be glad to help. (MORE)
Inspect the fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir. If the brake fluid level is midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, no brake fluid needs to be removed from the reservoir before proceeding. If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the… maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding. Raise the vehicle and suitably support. Refer to Vehicle Lifting. Mark the relationship of the wheel to the hub flange. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

How do you disassemble the rear brake light cover so you can replace the brake light bulb on a 2004 Mazda 3?
you DO NOT disassemble the lens cover!!!! Open the hatch, and you will see small access panels directly behind the taillights that open. Just open the panel and take the bulb out.
Remove the caliper retaining bolts from the inside of the caliper.Lift the caliper off the mounting bracket and over the rotor. Slidethe old inner and outer brake pads out of the caliper, and slidethe new brake pads into the caliper.

You have to unbolt the intake and a few other things and move it up to gain enough clearance to remove wires and plug. It took about an hour or so for my first time.
On the 2004 Honda Civic LX, the Rear Brake Light Assembly is held in place by 4 screws AND 2 Bolts. Unfortunately the Chiltons Repair guide does NOT cover the removal of the Brake Light Assembly and I destroyed the old one before I figured out how i was SUPPOSED to do it. Below are the steps. To Com…plete this task you'll need a Philips head screwdriver and a 10mm metric socket wrench. The Removal Instructions cover how I did it for a 2004 Honda Civic LX 4 Door: 1. Open the Trunk Lid. 2. Disconnect the two bulb connectors. 3. Remove the three screws holding the Brake Light to the trunk interior. 4. Get under the car and look up, under the Rear Bumper you'll see that there is a fourth screw still attached through a metal bracket. Remove the screw. 5. You will also need loosen the two bolts holding the bracket. There isn't enough room to take the bolts off. Besides, you relly don't need to. Once you get it loose enough, the Brake Light should slide out. 6. That's it! Reverse the steps for reinstallation. Hope that helps! (MORE)
Replacing brake pads is a pretty easy task. One must remove thetire, remove the brake shoe, remove the used pad, replace it with anew brake pad, replace the brake shoe, and replace the tire.
If it is one of the brake lights on either side of the tailgate, there are only two screws that hold it on. Let the tailgate down & you will see them on the side. Remove these two screws (one in plain sight, one kind of hidden around in the tailgate cable area), & the tail light assenby will come ou…t. There are three bulbs in the tail light assembly & they're all the same type, even the reverse light bulb (type is 3057). You should probably replace these with LED's since they don't burn out like bulbs do, just make sure you get the right ones. The bulb sockets will rotate about 1/4 of a turn (can't remember which way) & should then easily slide out. (MORE)
there has to be a special tool .. the caliber needs to be turned while its being compressed. i used a pair of channel locks to turn the caliber while using a c clamp to compressing it good luck.. keep an eye on the fluid level..
this is super easy all you need is a pair of needle nose pliers!!!! you just need to push the pin out and the caliper comes off here is a link to the how to. however if you are going to change the rotor then you need a t50 torx bit. http://www.cougardb.com/info/pdf/Rear_Brake_Install.pdf

Remove the rear wheels. Remove the Caliper off the Rotor by removing the two (top and bottom) bolts that hold it on. (14mm i think) Remove the old pads. Compress the piston all the way back into the caliper to provide space for the new pads. (Checker/O'Reilly Auto sells a cube like tool that fits on…to a 1/2" ratchet to compress the piston) Put the tabs and new pads in. Replace the caliper mounting bolts and attach the caliper back onto the rotor. After you're done make sure you press the brake padel in all the way and Slowly let it out. You're making sure the caliper piston is correctly seated against the pads and they'll self adjust. (MORE)
Lay down under the back of the truck and face one of the tires. You will see an oval rubber plug above the axel in the middle of the back plate of the brake. Pull out this plug and using a flat head screwdriver you will need to locate the star wheel that is inside this slit. All you have to do if ro…tate the star wheel to the outside of the truck. The easiest way to do this is to point the screwdriver down towards the ground, enter the slit in the back plate, locate the star wheel and then pull down on the screwdriver handle which will cause the flat head to rotate the star wheel to the outside of the truck.. Repeat for the other side, again rotating the star wheel to the outside of the truck. You can see what the star adjuster looks like here: http://www.widman.biz/Corvair/assets/images/db_imagesdb_Rear_brakes-lower1.jpg (MORE)
After you remove the rear caliper and old pads you will see the caliper piston has 4 slots that require a special tool to twist the piston down, you can usually get one to use from your local auto zone or parts store (I was able to use a pair of needle nose pliers as I'm sure you can), twist the pis…ton clock wise applying a little pressure as you twist, make sure the rubber dust boot is not twisting as well, if it is twisting it is just stuck to the piston and may need a small bit of lube applied between the boot and piston but do your best to keep all dirt/dust out. Now after doing this and have enough room to put the new pads on you will notice that on the back of the pad that rests on the piston there is a small "keeper pin" (for lack of a better word) that will need to be lined up with one of the slots or notches on the piston so that the pad will rest flat against the piston, put on the new pads, reinstall the caliper and slowly pump your brake pedal until you feel the pressure build back up and there you have it. Note, removing the e-brake cable or opening the bleeder valve will do no good and what ever you do don't try to compress the piston you will either damage it or just get extremely frustrated. I just finished replacing front and rear on my daughters 2003, a two hour job start to finish I assumed..... 6 hours and few fits of frustration later I figured it out so I hope this helps at least one backyard mechanic have a better day.

I am assuming you are referring to drum type brakes versus disk. If you buy OEM brakes from the dealer the instructions are included in the box. At least this was the case for a 2004 Forester. It is worth buying the brakes from the dealer since you can be sure you are getting the right part number… since they require the VIN number. As to the difficulty, I have not changed the brakes yet so I cannot provide an accurate assessment. (MORE)
remove road wheel, there are two bolts, top and bottom , behind the caliper, remove both , carefuuly chock the caliper on something that doesn't put strain on the pipes, then ease out calipers and retaining clips.. clean off all debros around the calipers, usually some road stone or grit around tha…t area, ease back the pistons, make sire they are free by getting somepne to pump the pedal , then push back as far as they will go.. position the new pads, and locate springs, (look how these are positioned on removal, add some copper grease to pad backs and springs, replace caliper as in reverse of this procedure, add grease to bolts that hold the caliper in place, tighten to recommended torque, and replace wheel, repeat for other side, do not overtighten caliper bolts, tendency to snap on you if you overtighten, and its not necessary at all, check brake fluid after work is complete, top up as necessary, unlikely as the pistons on the calipers will be further back.............. job done and good luck!

A person must change their car brakes often for safe driving. Tochange them a person lifts the car, removes the tire, brake shoeand old brake pad. Then place in a new brake pad, put the shoe andtire back in place, and lower the car.
remove spring clip of the front 7mm Allen key socket for sliders BUT a special tool is required a rear brake piston wind back tool with saab/vauxhall attachment a easy job with the right tool clockwise rotation
if your talking about the rear hatch i just took a flat head screwdriver and popped the little rings off around the connector where in attaches to the car and the hatch
I believe if you had to ask this question, it would be better for you to take the car to a brake shop or your car dealer. It is not a easy job.. Grayghost19
There will be allot of info on removing the rear calipers (Find the mounting bolts, remove, then remove the calipers, remove the old pads, put in new pads, replace in reverse order) - BUT I have done my 2003 a few times, and there is one important thing to watch for - they built these with a "wonky"… "threaded" piston in the caliper that pinches the pads. If you screw around with these, be careful, as they are the means to adjust the caliper piston back for the added meat of the new pads. They only adjust the one way (closed) when you mess with them unknowingly. be sure to have them turned in and open (The big flat "cross hairs" on the piston plunger is for this adjustment) - The car is engineered well, save this one part (emergency cable setup is poor too - seizes up) my 2 cents.

you would go to an auto body shop!! That's one route. The other would be to do it yourself. It' isn't that difficult. Most important part is to take note of the set up. Autozone is a great place for your tools and helpful diagrams. this should help.
In 2004 Toyota Camry if I have not used hand brakes do I need to replace front and rear wheels brakes or just front wheel brakes?
Rear brakes do not have to be replaced too often. It's really hard to tell without looking at it. What you can do is to replace front brakes and test drive it, if you feel that your car brakes works just fine you do not need to replace rear brake shoes.
rear brakes on a 2004 freestar you need to push in and turn the piston in as the rear calipers act also as the hand brakes, there is a special tool that you can buy so that will push and turn at the same time. OR - what I just did - get a 5-inch C-clamp, and tighten it up bit by bit, turning …the piston bit by bit with a pair of channellocks. I turned the piston clockwise; I don't know if it matters which way. But after you've got it opened up enough to accommodate the new pads, turn the piston some more until one of the slots in it faces the front. It has to fit around a little post on the back of the inside pad. NOTE: my Freestar is a 2005. Improved answer - The second person here has decided he will do it the hard way. -The proper tool is cheap, and yes, it DOES matter which way you turn it in (Clockwise only. ) This method is totally stupid as you will score the piston with channel locks - and I doubt you will get it all the way in.. Well - "totally stupid" seems a bit strong. Scoring the piston with Channellocks isn't really that likely, since it doesn't take all that much force to get it to turn. I performed the C-clamp-and-Channellocks procedure over a year ago, no leakage, working well. (MORE)
What if your rear wheel cylinder on 2004 Chevy Cavalier have been replaced but your brakes are still making noise even when brake is not on is this normal?
No! Take it back to the mechanic, something is not right. Better yet, call the mechanic and ask him if it is safe to drive back to garage.
Take it to a mechanic cause if you have to ask your not qualified to touch it and if you don't know what your doing you could kill yourself or someone else
