BRAKE DRUMS

1998 Saturn Ion

Brakes problem
1998 Saturn Ion 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

replacing rear brake shoes, the drums will not come off. Its like they are rusted on, and no accsess to adjust the pads so the drums can slide off the spindle.

Get some liquid wrench spray and spray around the small hub area in the center of the drum let it soak in for atleast 10 mins then get a hammer and tap around the outside of the drum on the face of the drum. That should break it loose. Let me know how it goes.
