Rear brake drum nut

Hello does anyone know the size of socket needed for the nut on the rear brake drums on a 1.4 8v, as my grande failed its 1st mot this afternoon on 4 problems, back brakes/handbrake being one of them, was advised the shoes need replacing, or cable needs tighting up.


Any help will be much appreciated.

Re: Rear brake drum nut

I dont think you need to remove the hub nut


I "think" that you just have to remove the 2x torx bolts then the outer drum slides off over the shoes

no doubt someone will be on soon with the answer


what exactly did it fail on Handbrake efficiency?

Re: Rear brake drum nut

If there is too much travel on the handbrake lever there is an adjusting nut inside the car. Just take the cover off around the handbrake lever and you should see it.

Re: Rear brake drum nut

Yeah something about handbrake efficiency, and no reserve.

I did try and take the drums off about 8 weeks ago to find out they squeak when i release the handbrake or brake pedal, but could not get them off.

Re: Rear brake drum nut

As Andy said remove the 2 torx screws first.

Next buy a hammer and hit the drums near the centre then with 2 levers (or decent strong flat screwdrivers) lever drum off over the shoes.
