Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Rear brake drums are stuck. Which way does the star wheel turn to loosen the shoes? Also, are there any special tricks to getting it loose?

1 Answer

6,885

it depends on how they were installed (I have done a few that were backwards) You might want to get the car towed to a brake shop and get them to remove the drums.
