Removal & Installation



The cross-section of the rear disc rotor resembles a top hat; the center section is actually a small brake drum. This assembly is often referred to as -drum in hat-. Drum in hat parking brakes are dual shoe, internal expanding units with an external adjusting mechanism and are mechanically operated via a cable attached to the parking brake pedal.
