DIY: Replace Rear Brake Pads - Per The Manual (1st Gen)
I was given the opportunity along time ago on here to get my hands on an electronic based manual for the 1st gen xB and took the liberty of turning them into pics so i could post them here....mainly for the techy people who dont need actual progress pics to follow.
Re: DIY: Replace Rear Brake Pads - Per The Manual (1st Gen)
I ordered some brake shoes from NAPA today, tore into the ol rusty drums, took everything out.
Then I noticed the new front shoes don't have the pin that the 'Automatic Adjuster Lever' swivels on (you can see it in Step 8 of disassembly). Anybody else ever run into this problem? Or know what I could do?
There's no way to get the thing to stay, and I can't pull the pin off of the old shoe because it's peened in there. This blows, cause now I have to borrow a car to get to the damn store again.
