Hi

2001 jimny.
Post MOT. Developed a problem with handbrake. It seems to stick on when released. As soon as I move it pings/clunks and all is well.... until I use handbrake again. So I thought I would take a look...

Got wheels off. Handbrake not engaged.
...
Trying to pull hubs to replace brake shoes. But seems stuck solid. And the holes for the bolts I think you should insert to pull the drum off are knackered
Using my professional tool (hammer) didn't loosen anything.
I am doing something wrong. Can't be this hard.

Advice appreciated

Assuming the drum goes round easily (if it doesn't then the brake is stuck on)

Wirebrush the joint between the hub & drum and spray with a penetrating oil (GT85, plusgas or diesel, NOT wd-40)
Spray a bit around the stud holes too.

Repeat every 10 minutes for an hour or so.

then pull the drum outwards whilst tapping the rim at the front towards you, keep rotating with the other hand.

After a few minutes of that, you can try warming up the area of drum where the wheel fits and repeat.

If you belt the drum with the hammer it might crack.

I'm surprised that the threaded holes are gone, you sure it isn't just dirt?
A pair of bolts in those holes tightened evenly will fetch it off with the brake on ;)

If it suddenly breaks, go back to the last thing that you did before it broke and start looking there :)

The holes look like they have been ripped out. No thread left and some bits of casting pulled out....

Then it probaby isn't going to come off :unsure:

Best get another drum and destroy that one taking it off if all else fails.

10mm socket on the handbrake adjuster and back it right off may give you more clearance? Could be duff cables or stuck linkages etc. If you need drums I have some

On the inside of the back plate is a 'peep hole' where you can get the adjuster, give that a good twiddle and it should come off
