How do you remove rear brake drums on a 1996 Corsica?
first make sure parking ( aka emergancy) brake is off (handle down). then loosen off your shoes by removing the little piece of rubber (its about an inch long) on the back of the wheel. this will allow you access to the starwheel which you turn with a flathead screwdriver in order to loosen the shoes on the inside. it should now be easy to remove the drums
Do you have to remove the rear wheel bearings to remove the rear brake drums on a 1996 tercel Thank you Sharon?
Remove rear wheels and properly support vehicle. Pull drums off (you may need to hit them with a small sledge hammer a few times to free up drum in order to remove). Remove brake parts and shoes. Do one side at a time so you can refer to other side during re-assembly. Replace shoes and brake parts if they are worn/broken. Ensure drum diameter is within spec if you plan on re-using. Have drums resurfaced…
