Default Re: Rear brake drums seized

Tried to use a puller, but the damn things would not budge after repeated attempts. Kept going at it with hammer, torch etc, but still nothing after many weekends worth of attempts.

Ended up going to Home Depot and buying a DeWalt 4.5 angle grinder along with a diamond cutting blade and cut the drums vertically at approximately 180 degrees. I then grabbed a large chisel and 20 lbs hammer and split it open like a watermelon.

I removed the brake parts on one side, but when I attempted to unscrew the brake link from the brake cylinder, the brake line twisted with the screen and it snapped (Gotta love Midwestern winters - does wonders to your cars).

I'm going to create another thread for this.

Default Re: Rear brake drums seized

i used my dads 2 jaw puller as it is wider than the 3 jaw one i got. the drum came off without too much fuss on my equinox but i still have not tried the vue again. and the bearing came off with a few good whacks. so some things do work out ok. but too many things going on

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
