As I recall, there are a couple washers that are pressed over the
studs on each side. They are supposed to keep the drum/rotor assembly
in place. You will need to cut them off to get the drum/rotor off.
Use a dremel, a cut off wheel or a cold chisel and hammer. Other than
this, just work it around like you would do any "normal" drum brake
set up, try whacking it with a mallet to "free" a stuck shoe.
Fuck you douch bag. When I did the parking brakes on my 99 there was
a washer on two of the studs on each side that had to be removed.
Obviosly there was a slight design difference. But unlike you, my
advice is never going to kill some one and unlike you, I didn't tell
the OP to trade it in, like you have done so many times.
Rather fight, naw, not worth it, esspecially when it comes to
Snoballs. However, to say that by "simply" backing off the shoe
adjustment and they come right off is not true. If you have a vehicle
that has never had them serviced, as I have worked on, they did not
budge when it was backed off. Like most typical drums, they can hang
and freeze up, due to various factors. All of which I am sure that
Snoball and his two followers (nonsense and Dave) would know about but
you three are never wrong.
Explain to me where anything I have said indicated that I was
incapable of anything? Please, I am waiting. See the thing is,
nothing I have ever said, or indicated or otherwise, would lead one to
that conclusion. But just like your lover Snoball, you would thing
that. Whatever, in your case, your name says it all.
Considering that BOTH of you are wrong this time I wouldn't throw stones.
Notice the OP said he had rear DISK brakes? He is fighting the E-Brake
shoe and the adjuster is NOT accessible without having the disk/drum
off. All you can do is release the cables and work them off.
Actually Steve, for what it is worth, if you were to read my original
reply to the OP, you would see that in part, I said the very same
thing you did. I have a NBS 99 that has the very same setup (disk
brake/drum parking) and had a very similar issue. Anyway...
