My husband has a 2005 Pontiac Vibe. He took the Brake Drum off and at some point had our nephew step on the brake. Well after doing that he figured out that the brake drum will no longer go on and we can not find anything that states what to do. We have tried moving the Adjuster, but to no avail. Please help!

Check that the shoes are seated against the large anchor pin on top. You'll probably have to pull them away from the backing plate so they can spring back.

Be aware that serious damage can be caused by pressing the brake pedal all the way to the floor. Since the vehicle is only a few years old, that might not affect it but it is good practice to never push the pedal more than half way down.
