How do you change the rear brakes on a 2000 Nissan Maxima?

If you have changed the front disc brakes before, it is very similar. The difference being that instead of just pushing the cylinder back so you can put the new shoes on the car you have to screw it back. You will need to go to Autozone, or Pep Boys or any parts store. Explain to then what you are doing. They will sell you a little $10 part that looks like a cube. it will fit on a ratchet. One of the 4 sides of that cube will fit exactly on your cylinder. simply ratchet the cylinder back so that you have room for your new shoes.
