Rear drum removal

Right, Ive just recently renewed my rear shoes and linkages.

Ive just whipped off the drums earlier to give them a slight roughening as they were a bit glazed...The passengers side came real easy...no problems at all...no rubbage on rotation, the drivers side isnt co operating at all.

There is a slight rub on this side, but that is only very slight. But I just cant get the drum off...it just wont pop over the wheel bearing.

I know one side has a non-Fiat wheelbearing (its round without the holes for the friction adjusters), and I think it may be that one.

Anyone got any clever ideas on how I can extricate the drum from the car?

Re: Rear drum removal

Tom, i spent a good hour with my drivers side drum pulling on it (This was with the handbrake cable removed). It finally came off with some prying using anything i could find to get behind the drum.

Re: Rear drum removal

You could always use a small hammer to tap the edge of the drum as sometimes the drums sticks itself to the hub and just giving it a little tap can help it free off.

Tap one side of the drum and then the over, start at the top and them tap the bottom, do this a couple of times each and then tap the right of the drum and then the left, this generally frees the drum right off.

I hope this help you out this is what I had to do with my old drums as one of them just wouldn't come off just like you described.

Re: Rear drum removal

use something like a lil bit of wood or something inbetween hammer and drum though, as otherwise the drum may shatter

Re: Rear drum removal

Schveet... Iwas gonna use the wood and hanmmer approach anyway if there wasnt a better idea. I would use a 3 leg puller, but i need to do it today, and my local frauds closes in 5 mins, any all other sources are closed!

Re: Rear drum removal

Use 'universal adjusting tool mark 1' and hit the drum on to the bearing while spinning it round. This should shock it off the hub. When refitting, a small quantity of copper grease between the drum and hub should stop the build up of corrosion between the two.

Cheers

Re: Rear drum removal

Heheehe at "universal adjusting tool mk1". Nice one

I knocked it off with a rubber hammer.
Strangely, The handbrake's worse than it was before i roughened the drums (I can spin the passenger side easily with a wheelbrace!)

That side that had the rub has no rub now, but the handbrakes crap... Im thinking ive just knocked the friction adjusters in too much. Am I \ is my logic right? Is this just a case to do the "MWC Handbrake Procedure" - that being slam the brakes on and the handbrake on just prior to stopping?
