Default How to remove brake shoes -- 2000 Civic

I replaced the front pads tonight and started to look at the rear shoes.
What's the easiest way to remove them? I was reading the online manual for
a 1995-1997 Civic but the pics for the '97 are a little different than the
2000. Also how hard is it to replace the components for the rear wheel
cylinder? Seems simple enough.

Thanks

Mike

There's a copy of the Civic 2002-03 manual listed at
http://icelord.net/honda/repair/. It may offer more assistance than the
earlier manual.

The rear wheel cylinders are fairly straight forward to replace. However,
if they're not leaking or show signs of corrosion when you look under the
boots, then you can reuse them (be careful not to get brake dust under the
boots). If you do replace them, just make sure that you use a flare nut
wrench on the brake line fitting.

I went to the link above and downloaded one of the files, it says I need
to enter a password to view it. I also downloaded another file but that
one is for the '95-97 models.

The password for the ftp site is given on the page. I just checked it and
it's the same as it's been for a little while, i.e., honda4you.

I should have been clearer, the document itself is asking for a password
when I try to read it.

I did a brake job on a '92 Accord last year, I had no problem taking
everything apart, it was assembling the shoes on to the mounting that
was the problem. I tried to do it like I have done on GM and Fords.
For the Honda, I had to assemble the parts on a bench vice and then
move the assembled parts to the car.

I did the front discs and had our mechanic at work do the rear for me.
Thanks for all the replies.

I haven't run into this problem yet with those files. Which file was it
that required the password?

It was the '96-'00 year file but everything works now.
