I tried to replace the parking brake shoes on my daughter's '01 Tahoe but
couldn't remove the shoes. The opening in the shoes was too small to fit
over the axle bearing casting. I was reluctant to remove the axle because I
didn't know the axle was secured in the differential. My question is: how
does the axle come out? Is it secured with a c clip like the older
assemblies i.e 1970s style?
