Legacy 00 rear brake job q's
Posted 21 April 2005 - 02:34 PM
Everything seemed fine until yesterday when I started hearing a squeal on the highway. Especially when turning left. Upon closer inspection my rear left break was very hot. Not the caliper but the center drum section which houses the e-brake. The wheel still rotated freely when pushed in neutral.
Now did I miss doing something with the e-brake when I replaced the disks? Do they need some sort of adjusting or again need some lube? The handbrake doesn't feel tight at all...
Thanks for any info!

If I understand well, there are two types of adjustments then. One right at the drum and the other for the cable lengths in the console. Can the adjustement at the drum be done without removing the disk/drum assembly?

Since you've cooked the bearing grease, expect a "snow tire" noise to develope in the rear. Then it's time for a new bearing.
