#20 of 26 Chevrolet Cavalier 1997 rear brake drum removal
Aug 29, 2009 (4:28 am)
i am trying to figure out how to back the rear brakes off of this cavalier. i cant get the rotors off and have not yet come across a problem like this. there is no access hole behind the back to get at the adjuster to back them down. also there is no adjuster on the cable that i can find. any help would be great

You should be able to pull the drum away from the backplate enough to back the adjuster off. However, you cannot replace the wheel cylinders of these without removing the rear hubs....do yourself a favor and take it to a brake shop to do the job for you.

I replaced the master cylinder on a 1994 Cavalier Z24, only to discover one of the rear brake lines would leak when trying to bleed the front. I replaced the rusted through brake line, but now I can't get air to come out of either rear brakes, let alone fluid. Is there a shut off it the ABS is disconnected, or if all the weight is taken off the rear suspension?

You may have to bench bleed your master cylinder since you replaced it. It should make no difference if weight is on the vehicle or not.

when I press on the brake pedal a noise is coming from the read brakes, as if it was a bearing noise. The noise is only there when I apply the brake pedal hard enough to stop the car. it's a 2004 with 37,000 on it..Thanks Hams1
#26 of 26 94 Chevy cavalier brakes locking up
Feb 21, 2010 (8:18 am)
I have a 94 Chevy cavalier and the brakes are acting up. This started about 3 months after replacing the rear pads. When you drive forward and tap the brakes the rear brakes lock up. It relly only seems that it is the driver side that is having the most problems. In the pedal I feel the pressure then a sensation of pressure release and the rear brakes lock up. If I ride the brakes for about 30 feet then I have no problems with the brakes till the cool off. The car has been inspected since and all the parts seem to be installed correctly.
