You need to pull the drums, then very lightly sand the shoes to remove the shine, then spray whole thing down w brake cleaner. Then reassemble.
A BFH. The drums tend to need a little coaxing to come off. Rust dosent help.So i've noticed this for a while, that my v squeals as i apply the breaks backing out of my driveway (it has a bit of a downward slope).
I've looked around and found a video that promiseland made when he had his v about cleaning it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MBffKeI_lPk, but my problem is there is a metal bracket or whatever its called around the rear drums that inhibits me from being able to just take the front plate of the drum off to clean it.
Does anyone know how to remove it? or another way to clean the rear drums without removal of the drums?
Any help would be appreciated
good plan. Thats what I would dothanks for all the tips guys, the weather has been crazy here so when its a nice day out i'll try to take off the drums and clean them out.
but i did call the service department at my local dealership and they said service bulletins aren't covered under warranty and more blah blah blah, here is the bulletin about it Nissan Publications
they said they'd charge me a min of $39.99 to inspect my breaking system.. bah! I may as well just clean the damn thing myself and eventually replace the front pads with hawk pads.
