1996 Toyota Camry LE brake problem

07-09-2011, 09:23 AM
I just did a complete rear drum brake job on a 1996 Toyota camry LE 4 door 4 cylinder. Shoes, hardware, and new drums. Upon stopping now, only the right rear.....passenger rear.....makes a loud clacking noise on stopping. Any ideas?

Take it apart and make sure all the springs and adjuster are on correctly. Sounds like something is out of place.

Yeah, something didn't get put back together right. For the drums, it's a good idea to do them one at a time. That way if you forget how something is installed you can always look at the other side.

First guesses would be a brake shoe hold-down spring or the shoe adjuster screw is not right.
