That depends, what are the rear brake problems? If the brake shoes are worn down, they can be replaced. Whenever replacing brake shoes make certain that you check the drum and have it "turned" if there are any ridges. If the brake shoes are out of adjustment but not worn out it might just be that your self-adjusting mechanism is faulty. Check that the star adjuster is not corroded and can turn properly. If there is any kind of fluid present it could be a wheel seal and the differential is leaking oil into the brakes, lubricant doesn't work well with brakes and will cause them to not work, or it could be a brake slave cylinder leaking brake fluid. It can also be caused by a faulty brake proportioning valve which you will find bolted to the inside of the frame directly behind the front drivers tire. If this is the problem i suggest paying someone to make the repair for you.

You first need to tell us what exactly is broken.

Actuate the E brake 20 times in a row ... usually will adjust ... if not you may have worn rear brake shoes or other problems there

I had the same problem. I found a ground contact failure in a rear light bulb socket. If you check this connector your problem will be solved.

Rear disc brake pads, no. Rear brake shoes, yes.

There are many problems that come with owning a car. If a Left rear brake and turn signal do not work, a person should check the fuses, bulbs and wiring.

If you are talking about the steel brake lines, most likely the rear lines, then replace both from front to back.

Depends on what is wrong with them. Being that old I would suspect the brake cables are frozen. You will have to take the rear brakes apart and see what went wrong before you can fix anything.

You first must be assured that the brake pads and discs are not in need of replacement.

Back off the brake adjustment, or back off the e-brake adjustment, or the e-brake cables are stuck. No need to open bleeders.

Check the brake light switch located on the brake pedal lever. If there is power to the switch but nothing coming out replace it. Did you check the bulbs? Is there power to the rear sockets?

Rear is to the back of the vehicle. Brake rotor is the rotating part of a disc brake.

If it's rear drum brake you should be able to adjust the rear brake shoes properly and solve your problems Pull back the hand brake until you see a hole with a 10mm nut. You will need a 10mm deep well sockets to adjust brakes. Turn the nut clockwise to increase brake.

You can cutoff the rear brake line. You will no longer have rear brakes and the fluid will leak out. It is not recommended that can't off the rear brake line, without replacing it.

the valve on the rear brake line is to limit brake force on the rear ie.loaded full pressure,empty reduced pressure to stop the rear brakes locking.
