    This is important* - FIRST disengage the two cables leading to the emergency brake bracket (found under the drivers side underneath). Turn the adjustment nut back at least an inche to allow the "balls" on the cable going to the back to come through their respective holes in the bracket. After completing the rear brake install ... reconnect these two cables in reverse order.

    *Footnote* - when reconnecting the cables to the emergency brake lever, to pull on the rear brake shoe ... it helps to clamp the cable at the entry point into the hole leading to the front. This maintains tension and aids in re-installng the cables up front.

Rear drum brakes


Sounds like brake shoes are knocking. Try backing up while pumping brakes or using the emergency brake a few times to tighten up shoes. If those don't work you may have to manually adjust shoes with star wheel or maybe defective (out of round) drum

How do i take off the brake drums on a 2003 chevy cavalier


After you remove the tire, the drim should slide off. If it doesn't then try using a rubber mallet and gently tap on the outside edge as you pull on it. Sometimes you also need to tap on the drum in the center part. I have sprayed penetrating lubes like WD-40 or PB Blaster into the seam at the center. You may also have to back off the parking brake cable or even use the adjuster to back off the shoes.

Its like a grinding sound when i press on brakes


well the braking element is gone from your brake pads and/or shoes, so you have metal on metal. you need a brake job. the longer you ignore this the more likely you will also need new drums and/or discs
on top of the new pads and shoes when the job is done.
