E brake shoes

Anyone have a DIY on e brake shoe replacement? IV bought the parts but can't find a install process. Iv never had a car with drum brakes so i cant relate it, any help would be appreciated.

I could try and explain but this is easier.... factory service manual will tell you what to do. If you're mechanically inclined you'll be fine it's not hard

Have you visually inspected the pads yet? Only reason I ask is because to get a look at the pads you have done most of the work to replace them if i remember correctly. I thought my pads needed replacement but they just needed an adjustment.

The haynes manual gives a good how to. Just go to your local parts store and take pictures. Once you have the car up do one at a time and use the other side as a reference. Get the hardware kit, it'll make your life easier

Thanks for the response guys. Replaced the rear rotors a month ago and notcied there very little meat left on the shoe. I bought the car used so I'm not sure why they are worn so bad. What is the hardwear kit and do you have a part#? I only bought the shoes but if it makes life simpler than I buy the hardware to.
