8.8 Parking Brake Shoe - Problem

While working on my 8.8, I discovered that one of the shoes for the parking brake is a bit dislodged. I was turning the shaft from the other side with a lug stud not all the way seated from behind and am not sure if it knocked something lose. I know nothing about drum brakes and am looking for advice to get this back into place.

With the axle shaft out of the way, this is what it *should* look like:





In your case - I *think* what happened was that the loose lug contacted this piece & dislodged it while you were turning the shaft.

The back of the lug stud was hitting it...one was broken and I replaced it with a new one. Nothing is hitting it now, I'm just not sure how to get it back into place. I can take more pics.

I bet you are exactly right. What do I do to fix? Do I need to remove axle shaft? What is the way to remove the shaft?

Since the axle shaft flange makes it difficult to get at the backing plate & attachment parts, you *might* have to pull the shaft to get to the loose/dislodged part.

If so, you'll need to pull the diff cover, remove the main cross shaft retaining pin, then slide the main pin out, then spin the c-clip so you can pull it out with some needle nose plyers. Once the c-clip is pulled, you can gently slide the axle shaft out enough to get to the brake parts.

Be extra carefull NOT to damage the axle shaft seal.

I think I got it taken care of...just tapped it back into place.

Thanks for the tips on removing axle! Hopefully all is good...guess I won't know until I try to engage and disengage the parking brake! ...whenever that might be since none of it is yet hooked up!
