Rear Brake Drum


Ensure parking brake is released. Raise and support vehicle. Remove wheel. Remove set screws from brake drum (if equipped). Pull drum from axle flange. It may be necessary to loosen brake shoe adjuster before removing drum.


Measure inside diameter of brake drum and diameter of brake shoes. Turn brake adjuster until difference between diameters is .024" (.60 mm) for RAV4 and Tacoma, or .020" (.50 mm) for Sienna, Tundra and 4Runner. Install brake drum and adjust brakes, if necessary.
