How to Change the Rear Brakes on a Toyota Celica

53

The Toyota Celica was manufactured with rear drum brakes, which require replacement or resurfacing of the friction surfaces at regular intervals. The drum cylinders and twin curved shoes use up their friction material, and can be maintained by the average backyard mechanic in about an hour.

Tools Used: Tools, Socket set, Screwdrivers, Floor jack, Jack stand

Change the Rear Brakes

Raise the Celica at the rear frame rail, just in front of the brake to be changed. Position the floor jack under the rail and pump the lever until the wheel is in the air. Place the jack stand head under the frame rail.
