I had the brake pads and drums replaced on thear of my Ford Focus 2001 and immediately both brake and ABS warning lights came on. They cannot figure out whats wrong.
The only way to solve this problem is to have a diagnostic device connected to the vehicle and this will allow you to read/ erase or reset any error codes. If there is an error code then retrieve the error code and based on that error code you can fi ... 2001 Ford Focus
Hi i have a 1995 cheverolet silverado 1500. For years i've had the problem of a really soft brake pedal that goes all the way to the floor before it brakes. It has abs, front disc brake and rear drum brakes. I have recently replaced the front brake discs and pads and rear brake shoes and drums. We then went on to replace the brake master cylinder and the brake booster but it still has the same problem even with numerous number of attempts to bleed the brake lines. There is no air in the system t

Hi, ive worked with bikes mainly and have replaced drum and disc brakes on them. I am working with a ford bronco 2 1988 and would like to know how to replace the brakes on it. I know the front are disc and the rear drum so i was wondering if there is much of a difference is replacing the brake fludis, lines, and brakes.
Not much difference replacing the lines and fluids between disk and drum brakes. Huge difference when replaceing the pads. Never force the drum over the pads with a hammer etc. Make sure to take a picture of the assembly before taking it apart whe ... 1989 Ford Bronco II

Replaced brake shoes and had drums turned when installed the right rear brake stated to make a clicking sound when brakes are applied. The sound is consistant with the speed you are going when you apply the brakes(when traveling at normal speed when the brake is apliied it clicks faster, and as the car slows so does the clicking noise). There is no noticable difference in how lound it is.I tried new drums, it helped for acouple of day then started again.I replaced the wheel cylinder the hold dow

Pontiac Vibe 2003. After a full stop of the car, there is a slow lowering of a pedal of a brake. At emergency braking the brake system works normally. Front pads and rotors are replaced, rear pads and drums are replaced. The main brake cylinder is replaced. Where is a problem? Thanks Sincerely yours Dmitriy
If there are no fluid leaks than I would bet you replaced the master cylinder with a re-manufactured unit instead of new. The re-manufactured ones are fine as long as you don't mind trying several of them to get one that works. If it is re-manufactur ... Pontiac Vibe
How do I know if my rear rotors on my 1997 chevy need replacing? I am hearing a noise when I brake. I have had my front pads replaced rear brakes cleaned. It was thought to be rear drum on right side but once rear drum was put on it still made the same sound? Please help if u can.

I was pulling the e-brake on my Pontiac Grand am se 3.4liter, just messing around in the snow. And i pulled it, and there was a loud snap in the back drum brake. Then the e brake was stuck activated. And then my floor braking pedal started to lose braking pressure. And now i found that the only spot that the fluid is leaking on the back right tire or from the drum brake. What exactly do i need to replace and repair?

I am trying to replace the rear brake pads on a vauxhall combo van, Y reg, I am having difficulty removing the brake drums, when I have done this before, there has been a adjustment screw which when undone allowed the removal,there is not one and the drum is catching on the brake shoe, is there any way of releasing the drum.
There should be two small threaded holes, insert the proper size bolt inside and screw the bolts in, alternating a few turns at a time. This will force the drum off the brake shoes. ... 2000 GMC Envoy
I have a 2003 L200 sedan. I took my car to one mechanic to have the rear brakes fix. He only put on the brake shoes. When I got my car back, the brakes were very low and soft. I took it to another mechanic who said they missed parts and the drums had to be replace. Do I have drum or disc brakes? When I got my car back, the brakes were perfect. I just want to make sure I wasn't charge for something I don't have.
If the drums were replaced then you have drum brakes the l200 saturns had two options for brakes anti lock brakes it has all disc brakes without anti lock it has disc on front and drum on rear hope this helps ... 2002 Saturn L-Series
I removed the rear wheel from my 2004 toyota corolla and I now have access to the rear drums. How do I open the drums, and what are the proper procedures for replacing the stock shoes of the rear drum brakes? I am familiar with disc brakes, but this is my first time working on a drum system. Please advise me how to open the drum and then any helpful tips for removing/reinstalling the shoes. Thanks
The holes are toward the center of the drum, about 4 inches apart. they don't look like much and are easy to overlook. Check your repair manual. On some front wheel drives (undriven rear wheels) you take the axle nut off and pull the hole drum and ... 2004 Toyota Corolla

Just recently, looked under fender wells and noticed splatters of brake fluid again and on insides of rear tires, could it be bad brake drum cylinders or something else casuing the cylinders to go bad?
Could be a defective wheel cylinder one maybe but two, check your rear end axle seal make sure there not leaking. ... Dodge Ram 1500
Ok, my 2002 Dodge Neon is having brake problems we replaced the rear master cylinders and brake bad. But, the rear right drums catches the brakes when you free spin the drum with your hand at one point. We bleed the brakes and so on. Now, you can't smell a burnt smell at the back wheel after driving it. Like the brakes are not spoiling or un-engaging properly. HELP!
You need to manually adjust the brakes after putting new brake shoes on. The automatic adjuster has adjusted for wear in the old shoes which will make the new shoes too tight. ... 2002 Dodge Neon
1990 Buick Century custom, 3.3 V6, 4 door automatic. I have replaced the linings, wheel cylinders, both rear drums on this vehicle. When the linings are tight to the drum the brakes seem to operate correctly. I have often experienced a "locking up" of the right rear brake. It seems as if the brake shoes become loose (out of adjustment).I have used the parking brake to try and "self adjust the rear linings as it is my understanding that this is how they work.Since I purchased the vehicle used I e

I just replaced my rear brake drum cylinders. I bled the system, made sure clear fluid was running through it with no air bubbles, and that everything was put back together correctly. when I started up the car, however, I had no resistance on my brake pedal and my rear passenger brake was not operating at all. I re-bled the system and made sure there were no leeks. Still no brake resistance. Thinking it might be a bad master cylinder, I purchased a new one, replaced it, and made sure everything

I have a 1991 GMC Sonoma 2Wd with a 4.3 V6. I'm having trouble with the rear brakes still spinning. I just replaced all the brake parts in the back, wheel cylinders, drums, springs, etc. I replaced a line on the rear too. The problem, is that the brakes still arent working.... at all.. the wheels just turn all the time. The front brakes seem to work just fine though. That leads me to believe the master cylinde is working. Im stumped. Any ideas?
The front brakes can still work even if the master cylider is bad, depending on the vehicle, there can be 2 to 4 brake lines comming out of the master cylinder. and up to one piston per wheel. before you replace it. put the truck in reverse "ideally ... 1991 GMC Sonoma
In my sons 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee there was a dragging grinding sound coming from the passenger rear wheel when you stepped on the brakes. I pulled the drums off and the cylinder was leaking slightly and the brakes needed replaced. I replace the cylinder and the rear brakes. I then tried to bleed the new cylinder and I am getting no brake fluid out of the bleeder valve. I then pulled the line off at that wheel and still no fluid would come out when the peddle is depressed. Any thoughts on why
Hi,\015\012 Have your son pump the brake pedal until it gets hard. Then as you loosen the bleeder screw at that wheel tell him to let his foot ride the pedal and don't take his foot off until you tighten the bleeder screw.\015\012 You se ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable. Have this problem on both rear wheels. Everything is new. Drums, shoes, all hardware. Seems to be a lot of tension on the adjuster cable. This is causing a horrific squeal in rear brakes.
