It appears this lead was posted in 2002 when I search for help, but I
am still stuck. I have 2002 Hyundai Elantra 16K miles only rear right
brake making a gunk gunk gunk noise when braking from 40 mph to stop.
When I attempt to trouble shoot. I removed the wheel, and found the
drum brake nut was pressed. Normally, I expect old design to be this:
remove the wheel, found the drum holding by a nut, which is holding by
a retainer cap with a cotton pin. Old procedure is to remove cottonpin,
retainer, nut, and drum, to see the shoes. Now with this new design,
the nut and retainer are one whole thing with the retainer pressed into
the spindle slot without using cotton pin. Now how do I remove
nut-retainer? I try many tools, hammer, punch , attempt to lift the
pressed down metal to lift from the slot. No luck. How do the dealer
lift it up? In the future how do I inspect brakes myself?
