FIAT PANDA help fitting rear brake shoes and drum

I wondered if anyone could give me help with fitting new rear brake shoes and drums. We bought some new ones and have removed the old ones fine. When weve gone to fit the new shoes weve put them on and attached the springs but when weve gone to put the new drum on theres no way it will fit. Weve got a hayes book which simple adviced to give the drum a good hit with rubber mallet but that wouldnt work.

FIAT PANDA Selecta Rear Drum Brakes

and locate one end in a hole (3) with a pair of substantial grips you can apply enough tension on the upper spring to pop it in the other locating hole (3). The upper spring is on top of the shoes but hidden by the hub. Finally the pins and clips (4). My fingers are now sore and still black despite attempts to clean them - its no place for a camera..

The most common fitted is the heavy spring and washer type so it would pay you to look at the type fitted to your car. If you get the rear drums off you can also check the condition of the wheel cylinders for any sign of weeping of brake fluid. If your panda

FIAT PANDA Sylvias maintenance thread

Jim and myself were possible will try to keep it up to date. Wont we Jim. Her brakes have been very poorly and to be honest Im amazed Jim hasnt arrived at the house needing a new front bumper. So we got everything to replace all the braking system apart

Changing rear brake shoes. Make sure the car is up on blocks and it helps if the cars level as this means the handbrake should be equal on both sides when adjusting it later. Step 1. The handbrake should be released off a few turns on the screw to allow for the new shoes and drums if they are being fitted. I havent the photo yet but will add it later. Step 2. Removing the rear brake drum. To do this the 2 12mm bolts have to be taken off. one of them is a locator but for the road wheel. A quick tap with a hammer will have them off. The photo shows the front disc but the bolts are the same front or rear. More than likely if the drums have been on for a while they will have developed a groove on the inside. You may need to tap the drum off with a hammer. Make sure you tap it off equally all round as you hammer it off or it will stick and youll have to hammer it back on and start again. Having said that most of them fall out in your hand. Step 3. Removing the shoes. They are held on with 2 spring one at the top and one at the bottom and a clip on each shoe. Also behind the large metal circles on the shoes there is a spring which locates onto a stud. From years of experience I have found the best way to take the shoes off is to first remove the 2 retaining clips (the ones Im pointing to). This will let the springs start to pull the shoes out towards you a bit. Now get a strong screwdriver and gently at the bottom of one of the shoes were it goes in behind the retaining plate put the screwdriver and prise the shoe from behind the plate. Its a strong spring so be careful. Its also the thinner of the 2 springs. If you can get both shoes from behind the retaining plate it makes it a little easier to get the spring off but I use long nose grips to hook the spring out for no other reason than I can get better leverage and it cant fly off somewere round the garage. You can do the same for the top spring but it is a stronger on and harder to lever out. Step 4. Taking off the shoe off. Look at the hubs edge. you will see as you turn it the there are 2 narrow recess on it. (You can see it in photo) You have to make sure it lines up with the metal disc on the shoe or it will never come out because this is how you get the spring behind over its stud. If you havent already got the top spring off then nows the time to prise it off with the grips if you have them. Couple of things to do since to have everything off. Gently twist and push the pistons of the cylinder in (but be sure to hold one while pushing the other otherwise one will pop out and youll have fluid everywere) Also get some copperease and grease handbrake arm were the pivot is. Believe me it helps the brakes long term. Thats it to taking the shoes off. Now putting the new ones on. Step 1. Putting on the new shoes. Put the shoes on the same way you took them off but you have to work the spring of them over the stub while guiding them through the groove of the hub. Once you have the 2 shoes on dont put their spring clips in ans you need them to move as much as possible to get the top and bottom springs on. Line up the handbrake arm into the grooves on the shoes at this point to. Step 2. fitting the top and bottom springs. Hold the top one up and look at it. With the hooks of it pointing towards the car you will see that the spring runs flat at one side and bulks out at the other. Im not explaining it well but look at it and youll see what I mean. The bulky side should be pointing towards the hub otherwise it wont fit. And it also has to slide though behind the hub. Fitting the spring back on is fun and were the grips come in. That a strong screwdriver and a strong hand come in because your going to have to do a good bit of pulling to hook it on. Step 3. Bottom spring. This is the thinner of the 2 springs and it has the same flat side and bulky side. Again bulky side towards the hub and it has to slide in behind the hub. Step 4. once you have both springs on you now prise the bottom ends of the shoes back under their retainer. Then its a matter of locating the retaining clips and placing them back on. When putting the drum back on and assuming the handbrake has been let off enough the drum should slide back on easily. Only when you have both sides done should you adjust the handbrake back up. Im sure other people have a better way of doing the brakes but this is my tried and tested way. front brakes next. pandarus thanked for this post

FIAT PANDA Replacing handbrake cables

Going to have go at replacing handbrake cables to my fiat panda any tips or advice off anyone.

Assuming you can safely jack and support the car and have experience of working on drum brakes it is a fairly easy job on the panda.

Inside the cabin remove the centre console (2 M10 nuts in the cupholders 1 M10 nut just in front of the handbrake lever
