Hi,

The first thing we need to do is confirm which type of rear brakes you have. I attached two pics below. Pic 1 shows a disc rotor and pic 2 shows a brake drum. Looking through the rear wheel, see if you can identify which you have.

Unless this is a hatchback, I believe it will have drum type brakes, but please verify.

Next, here is a link that shows in general how to replace rear drum brakes:

So the brake drum is adjusted using a tool like a gauge.

Hi,

That tool is used to measure the outside diameter of the brake shoes to make sure the drum will both fit over them and so they are not closed too far. You can do it without that tool. What you want to do is have a very slight drag when turning the brake drum. Basically, the brake pads are just ready to touch it.

Let me know if that helps or if you have other questions.

Take care,
Joe

Can I get all the torque specs for this car because I got to do a lot more work to it and I don't want to open another question for every little thing so that way I know the correct torque.

Hi,

I have to ask you to start a new thread. We try to keep the questions specific to one topic so they are helpful to others as well. As far as torque specs, that isn't a problem. However, you will need to be specific as to which component or components you are referring to. Everything has a torque spec. It would be nearly impossible to hit all of them.

I hope you understand. Please just copy and paste your last questions with specifics and someone will help.
