How to Change Front Brake Discs & Pads
Brake pads consist of a backing plate and friction material. It is the friction material that comes into contact with the brake disc. Overtime the friction material wears down and your brakes become less effective at stopping your vehicle. The manufacturer of your vehicle will specify a minimum thickness of the friction material before the brake pads need to be replaced.When checking your brake pads, you should look at the inner and outer brake pads as they can wear at different rates. If your vehicle is fitted with alloy wheels looking at the thickness of the outer pad is not enough.Brake discs are made of cast iron. Like brake pads they can wear over time. Depending on your driving style, brake discs have a longer service life than the pads and do not require replacement every time pads are replaced. When you are inspecting brake discs you should check both sides. Find the right part for your car here: http://www.eurocarparts.com/

How to Remove a STUCK Drum Brake
How to remove a stubborn brake drum. Watch how to remove a brake drum that is stuck on. I go through the steps so anyone can remove their drum brake. In this case the drum adjuster was stuck so first try to get it off by wiggling back and forth. Then spray penetrating oil to remove rust between the drum and the seat. Then hit it with a hammer hard. This should free the drum if it is just rusted on. If the drum doesn't come off, then your brakes are probably stuck open preventing the drum from coming off. If this is the case, cut or drill out the holding pins from the back (that hold the shoes in place) and remove the screws to the brake cylinder and then pull the drum off.
