How do you get the rear brake drum put on a 1997 Chevy Cavalier?
If this doesn't work; turn the adjuster wheel in a bit and then push.
Release the hand brake. With a brake adjustment tool, retract the brake shoes inward. You will then be able to remove the drum. Answer Support the car well and release the parking break. Drum will come right off. They get rusty. Use WD-40 at the center part of the drum between the lug bolts being careful not to get any on the shoes and inside of the drum, a few bangs with a rubber mallot…
Unscrew the brake line from the drum or the caliper. Dont let the brake fluid drain. Have some one step on the brake pedal and while it is gushing out fit it back on and screw it tight. There are one person bleeders which suck the brake fluid through so you don't need another person. These look like a kidney with a tube and they are available at auto part stores.
