Fusion rear brakes 1.4tdci 2005

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

nsr wheel bearing sounded like a jumbo jet, decided to replace both rear wheel bearings.

Removal of drums revealed they were near knackered to be honest - so went down the route of replacing drums (with pre fitted bearings), shoes, abs rings.

Being a vauxhall man for many years, the ford brakes i wasn't too familiar with.... so i photographed each side before disassembly, but noticed the automatic adjuster orientation was different on each side.

Can anyone tell me if these are correct or not please ? The single pic is the nsr, the other two are the osr.

Many thanks

I don't know. I had 2007 fiesta and had to attend to the rear drum brakes as the adjusters appeared not be working automatically. I can't remember what they looked like.

In my experience automatic adjusters appear to stop working when the car gets older. I would just manually adjust them up as far as they will go with you still being able to get drum back on and it spin without binding.  You'll know when it needs doing again as the handrake lever will be getting high.

After an accidental stumble over other posts i came across this picture showing the nsr.

It appears that mine was fitted the wrong way round.

This picture shows what it should look like.

I will strip mine and correct the previous mechanics mistake, when it gets a bit warmer !

Like me, I have a pile of job cards for when the weather gets warmer, drier, and less windy!
