Removing rear drum on '96 2.3 2WD - wrm - 07-08-2017 01:35 PM

Hi all

What's the trick to get the drums off? I don't have threaded holes to run a bolt through & push them away from the hub, there's no place to hold on to them?

Thanks

W

Make sure the handbrake is down

Tap gently with a 4 pound hammer all around the edge. If you do it long enough it will come off.

Thanks Nick. Lots of penetrating oil and some harder "tapping" than I would have liked managed to do the job.
