FIAT BRAVA 182 Drum brakes warped

Hi yes I did it myself when changing wheels. The problem was the screws of the wheels wouldnt come loose easily so I had to pull quite a lot at them (about maybe 200 Nm or more) with the handbrake engaged to prevent the wheels from turning. The wheels came off alright but since then the brake pedal and handbrake pulsate heavily on braking. I think Ive been warping the drums. Now what Can those drums

yes you can remove the wheel bearing to get your old drums apart and then just replace the shoes and outer drums leaving the back plates and cylinders in place (if the outer drum will pull off assuming it isnt stuck in plce by the ridge altohugh you could release the adjuster using a screwdriver to sort that problem). but id rather remove both rear arms from a scrap car and replace the full lot if

To do the job properly replace with new parts. You want new adjuster arms drums shoes cylindersfitting kit and replace the wheel bearings. I would also stick a new cable on too. To do it this way is piece of mind and job done correctly. Oh dont overtighten the wheel bearings. Andy.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Rear drum wont fit over shoes

I took of the rear drum of my brava with it on axel stands today. I left it briefly to get a tool from the shed in this time my girlfriend walked past saw the handbrake was off so thinking she was being helpful pulled it on one click. Now the shoes are just slightly too far apart and I cant get the drum back on. Tried pushing them back together but they wont return and i cant drepress the wheel cylinder pistons. Any suggestions

What has happened is nothing to do with the hydraulics so dont release the bleed screw. Pulling the hadbrake up with the drums off has allowed the automatic adjuster on the handbrake to move up a notch or three. The adjuster is the mechanism that goes between the two shoes and it has a ratchet mechanism on it. As the brake shoes wear down the ratchet clicks over to take up the slack. This is normally
