How to Replace Drum Brake Shoes, 2001 Odyssey – EricTheCarGuy

HONDA ACCORD EXECUTIVE 1979 ONWARDS

The reason for showing this video. Hence, is to show our customers at Pellon Autocentre, here in Halifax UK.So what is involved in repairing their cars brake shoes. One of our loyal customers, owns a Honda Accord, 1980 model. The car is in great condition. Of course, cars can break at any given time. Thus this is what happened to Joe.

Joe, had been experiencing squeaking noises coming from the back of his car. Especially when he braked hard. Of course, the noise started off at a low pitch. But the noise became much loud with time.

Brake shoes were always known to be noisy. Fortunately, shoes are being replaced with discs and pads, even on the rear of cars. In my opinion discs and pads are much safer and efficient, than brake shoes. We got Joe to bring us the Handa in. Naturally, we put the car on a ramp and removed all the wheels, to check the condition of all the Hondas brakes.

It is no good just checking the rear brakes, we always check out all the cars brakes.

Sure enough, the rear shoes were well worn and covered in brake dust. The shoes on the rear do not work as hard as the front brakes. But like anything else they do need changing in time.

This video explains about the things that we have to do to replace the brake shoes. Joe had his shoes replaced and went on his way yet another satisfied customer.
Well here it is kids another offering of my most popular subject to date, drum brake servicing. I know it’s long but I’ve put a few extras in it for you that I hope you will like and will help you with other things besides just replacing the shoes. Feel free to comment on anything I might have missed, I know I misspoke on a couple of occasions in the video, forgive me as sometimes my mouth says different things than my brain is thinking.

Apply a small amount of grease to the two 8 x 1.25 mm bolts and use these bolts to remove the stubborn Brake Drum. Two turns at a time. You may want to tap with a Rubber Hammer to help release the Brake Drum. After the Brake Drum is removed, Study the REAR Brake Anatomy.
