take the axle bolts off and slide the axle out and ur gonna need a special socket to get the nut off the bearings it has four prongs if you get that take off outer bearing and the whole drum and hub will just pull off with a little effort to get at the rear brakes you need to pull the wheel off and slide the drum off, there is no need to take the hubs off, once inside the drum you will see a cable coming in this is the e brake cable. note relieving the brake pressure will make things a lot easier, but you must make sure the truck cannot move while it is up on jack stands. stay safe

The buzzer that lets you know the key is in the ignition in a 1989 Chevy Blazer is in the steering column. To access it you would need to remove the steering wheel with a special tool, or remove the ignition assembly. The key makes contact with a tab that activates the buzzer.

The front wheel is removed by unscrewing the nut from the wheel bolt. The bolt can then be slid out. Take note of the spacer location and orientation between the fork and the side that had the nut (opposite side of brake assembly) for proper placement during installation. The wheel can then be removed from the forks. The brake assembly should just slide out of the wheel center, if it does not loosen the brake cable adjustment nut in the center of the wheel to release pressure from brakes. To remove the rear wheel you must first remove the exhaust pipe. There are two small bolts under the bike where the pipe connects to the engine. There is one more larger bolt directly below the air filter. once the exhaust is out of the way you remove the cotter pin from the castle nut on the right side of the bike, then remove the castle nut. The brake assembly on the rear wheel stays attached to the bike and the wheel slides off of it. Loosening of the brake cable adjustment nut may be required. Sometimes a few light whacks with your fist on the left side of the wheel may also be required if your brake pads have worn a groove in your wheel.

You must remove the wheel bearings, inspect them, repack them with grease, and install them back in the vehicle.

Basically on most models you disconnect the battery, remove the horn button assembly, steering wheel, and turn signal assembly to expose the ignition switch and retaining screw. Remove the switch and install your new one and put everything back together again. This takes a couple of tools like a steering wheel puller and a steering wheel spring compression tool. Another Model require you to drop the steering column fron the dash but you don't have to remove the steering wheel. A Chevy book from your local library would be a good way to start this job. See if it has ignition switch replacement section and if so check it out for a few days.It's about an hour job if you are prepared

First thing you take the horn assembly apart, usally two screws holding the face on from the rear of the wheel, then gently take the horn assembly, it's springs, wires, ect., take note how these things came apart, remove the large bolt holding the wheel on, get yourself what's called a "crows foot" wheel puller, rent it at any auto zone, use that to pull the wheel off, under that you'll run into the turn signal assembly, take that out with ease also, might be a circle clip holding the notched washer above a large spring that gives tension to the tilt wheel, if your car has one, if not skip this, you should see the ign lock assembly, there's small bolt or sometimes a pin the holds the lock in place, remove that and it'll slide right out, reverse to replace. jr

Take the drum off and take a picture. Use one wheel as a guide to repair the other.

If it is like a 1989 saab 9000, you remove the front passenger wheel, remove all the plastic from the wheel well, and the alternator should be rite there. You can also get to it by removing the manifold, which allows much easier access to the alternator, but then you need a new manifold gasket.

fully retract the brake adjuster and strike the outer side of the drum with a BIG hammerNew Answer HeadlineFor earlier models, e.g. 1989 station wagon (estate), the answer is to have the handbrake off, jack up rear wheel, remove wheel, pry off cap from wheel nut (using a flat screwdriver), remove wheel nut (remove locking pin, nut), and slide off the whole drum and the wheel bearing. No hammering is needed at all.

To remove the tail light assembly on a 1987 to 1989 Chevy Celebrity: On the inside of the trunk next to the quarter panel look for the nuts that hold the rear header to the body. Remove the middle nut, which will be in the center of the tail light assembly. the assembly will then pull outward. When the stud clears then pull to the outside of the car to release the tab from the back up light assembly. If you remove a nut but the tail light assembly did not budge then you probably removed the wrong nut. I like to replace the original nut with a wing nut. That makes future removal easier.
