Brake jobs are not a job to be done without a Manual.
Your life and the lives of others and the life of your Automobile depend on them. Please purchase a [ Paper Repair Manual] OR a [ CD Repair Manual] and do the Job correctly.

how do remove the brake drum on a 1991 mazda 323

My 1995 Ford Explorer XLT has disk brakes front and rear , so it takes brake pads 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorers had drum brakes on the rear , so they took brake shoes

how do you remove the drum the wheels are off

Master cylinder or drum brake (hydraulic slave) wheel cylinder or disc brake caliper cylinder? drum brake shoes rear

Remove the tire and wheel from your 1988 Ford Ranger pickup truck. Remove the brake pads. When the brake drum is not loose you can tap on it with a hammer or mallet. Once the brake drum is loose it will slide off.

brake shoes are used with drum brakes and are " spread out " when the brake pedal is applied ( brake shoes are used for the rear brakes on 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorers ) brake pads are used with disc brakes and squeeze on both sides of the brake rotor when the brake pedal is applied ( 1995 and newer Ford Explorers have disc brakes front and rear )

Drum brakes are meant to self adjust when applying the brake in reverse, however you can access the adjuster from the back side of the brake plate through a rubber grommet, it is hard to see but in there there is a little gear looking thing that you can manually turn with a flathead screwdriver to adjust the brake pads. If access is too difficult then you will have to remove the drum to get at it, im thinking that once you get in there you will find that it is pretty dirty which is causing the adjusters not to work, and the shoes are worn as well.

Brake drums can be resurfaced by turning the brake drum in a brake drum lathe. When the brake drum has deep grooves in it, it cannot be repaired.

No , disk brakes front and rear ( the back disk brake rotors have small parking brake shoes inside of a drum portion )

A drum brake is a brake that uses friction caused by a set of shoes or pads that press against a rotating drum-shaped part called a brake drum. The term drum brake usually means a brake in which shoes press on the inner surface of the drum.

you must pull the axles, remove the bearings and then the hub/brake drum assmbly. comes off as one unit.

You have to disassemble the wheel bearing, then the drum and hub pull off as an assembly.

You can find a diagram of the rear drum brake assembly for a 1993 Ford Club Wagon van at most auto parts stores. It can be found in Ford Club Wagon repair manuals.

Brake shoes worn out. Replace them and have the drumns resurfaced.

The 2001 Ford Explorer rear parking brake is separate from the rear disc brake that stop the vehicle. The rear rotors have a small drum in the inboard side.

look through the rim. if it's silver and shiny behind it that's a disc brake if it's brown and rusty looking, that's a drum brake

Make sure there is slack in the parking brake cable. Then, hit the drum with a bfh.

Light coating of grease on the axle flange before reinstalling, or create a wax paper gasket and put in before installing drum.

In case of cost..drum brake is better than disc brake.

You could have either 9 inch or 10 inch , depending on the brake drum size
