I have decided to replace the rear drums and pads, rather than the rather drastic measure of changing from Hubs to discs. Please could someone tell me the size of the socket I will need for the rear brake drum removal.
Please can any one tell me if there is a window on the backplate which allows you to gain access to the rear brake pad adjuster. The offside drum won't come off and I think it's due to the brake pads sitting in a groove they have wornin the brake drum itself. They have done 80,000 miles after all. I have looked online to see if there is a video but have been unable to find one. Any help would be appreciated. I believe that you wind back the adjuster which will enable the pads to close up.
I have the service and maintenanceon a cd rom. the picture of the back plate shows what looks like an arched window where the adjuster runs across the top of the backplate. I can't see by craning my neck under the wheel arch. If anyone knows for certain I would be eternally grateful......
