In the center of the hud, there is a steel cover. use a screw driver and a hammer to tap the cover off. Make sure you take the handbrake off, and undo the center nut and take the bearings out. when you pull the hud off.
When you come to put it back on make sure you put the bearing in first then the washer then the nut.

I hope this has helped!

How do you remove rear brake drum on a 1996 ford festiva


To remove the drum, you simply remove the hub nut in the center of the drum. The bearing will come out with it. I am not positive but if you are working on the passenger side the hub nut may have left hand threads.

Those work pretty much the same as a conventional drum brake. The main difference is that you must first remove your brake caliper and caliper bracket assembly so you can get the rotor off.

Then it is only a matter of removing the return springs and hold-dow clips just as in a regular drum brake. (See Picture)

Can't get drum off


once tire is off get a large hammer (2 - 3 ) pound and hit drum several times on the face of drum and along the outer area to brake it free, most times the center of drum rusts to axle shaft causing it to stick. dont be afraid to hit the bastard !! and then use larger screwdriver and install behind the drum between the back plate and pry off while hitting opposite side from the back with hammer. I recommend putting on lug nut just enough to cover the threads on lugs so you do not accidently hit them with hammer. and yes you will !! then remove nuts upon drum removal

Unable to remove rear brakedrum 2001 focus


the drum and bearing are one unit. You'll need to remove the center cap and the axle nut. The drum will then come off with no problem.

Make sure you tighten the axle nut to the proper spec after you put the drum back on, otherwise you'll ruin the bearing

How to replace rear wheel bearings


If it has drum brakes, you'll need to take off the center dust cap, remove the cotter pin, remove the nut and washer holding the drum on. The outer bearing should fall out, the inner bearing usually stays in the drum, due to the grease seal. With the front bearing and washer off, put the drum back on and install the nut, then pull the drum, allowing to the nut to catch the inner bearing as you pull off the drum, and that should leave the inner bearing and seal on the spindle. Pack the new bearings with grease, install the inner one in the drum and tap in the grease seal in place, but the drum back on and install the outer bearing on the spindle, the wash, nut, cotter pin and dust cover. Tighten the nut snug and turn the drum a few times and snug up the nut. Don't overtighten it.

Trying to remove rear brake drum cover,have already adjusted star wheel and still won't remove. what am i doing wrong? for a 93 plymouth grand voyager


  1. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Remove the wheels and tire assemblies.
  3. Remove the brake shoe adjusting slot cover from the rear of backing plate.
  4. Insert a thin tool through the adjusting slot and hold the adjusting lever away from the star wheel.
  5. Insert an adjusting tool and back off the star wheel by prying downward with the tool.
  6. Remove the center hub dust cover, nut, washer, brake drum, hub and wheel bearings.
To install:
  1. Inspect the brake lining and drum for wear.
  2. Inspect the wheel cylinder for leakage. Service as required.
  3. Remove, clean, inspect and repack the wheel bearings.
  4. Install the brake drum and tighten the hub nut to 20-25 ft. lbs. (27-34 Nm), then back off the nut until bearing pressure is released.
  5. Retighten the nut finger tight, align the cotter pin hole and install the cotter pin.
  6. Adjust the rear brakes as described in the beginning of this section.

Brack change


Assuming that this Model has 4 Wheel Disk Brakes I will lead you the Best that I can. Remove the Tire, From there you will see a Large Disk with a "Caliper" Mounted on the top side that covers Both sides of the Disk. On the Back side of this "Caliper" on the Top and Bottom of it There is going to be a Bolt on the Top and Bottom. Some use Allen Wrenches and Some use Bolts or Nuts, Feel around and figure out which one you have. Remove these and Lift the Caliper Off of the Disk,BE CAREFUL WITH THE BRAKE LINE ATTACHED TO THE CALIPER AND DO NOT REMOVE THE BRAKE LINE! Remove the Brake Pads from the Caliper at this Point. On the Back of the Brake Pads that you just removed there should be Clips, Take these off the Old pads ans Install on the New Pads. Right where the Pads were on the Caliper there is going to be a Round Cylinder with a Large Hole in the Center, This needs to be Depressed back into the Caliper to get this Job done. On the Top of the Caliper there is a Small Bolt that is Round on Top and has a Small Hole in the Center Just like a Persons Head on a Nut. You MUST do the Next Steps Together to make this work CORRECTLY! Get a Wrench that fits the Small nut on top and Loosen it VERY LITTLE While you use a Pair of Channel Locks to Compress the Cylinder Back into the Caliper. You should see Brake Fluid come out of the Head in that little Nut. Once the Cylinder is Compressed Back into the Caliper Tighten the Little Nut Back down. Try not to let Air get Back into the Hole in the Nut that you are Loosening Or We will have a PROBLEM. So, Make sure you do BOTH of them at the Same time (Loosen nut WHILE Compressing Cylinder with Channel Locks). Install the New Brake Pads on the Caliper the Same way that they came off. Wipe everything off and keep it all Clean! Install the Caliper Back on the Disk and Replace the Bolts on Top and Bottom of Caliper. Get in the Car and Pump the Brake Pedal until it gets Firm and go to the Next one! This will work for all if you have 4 Wheel Disk Brakes. If you get two much air in the Lines the Brakes will go to the Floor and you will have to have a Helper Pump the Brakes while you Loosen the Little Nut on top of the Caliper. Message Back with ANY more Questions!
