    Replace CTS emergency brake shoes.

    Had to replace the LR hub (ended up removing the entire knuckle assy) and now cannot figure out how to put the ebrake shoe back (it fell out when I removed the rotor). Rebuilt the adjuster; shoe(s) are a 1 piece assy. and I have one funky spring which goes in there somehow. Help, please.


    I should have said PARKING brake!

    Re: Replace CTS emergency brake shoes.

    If they're anything like a Corvette parking brake assembly, PAY SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THIS. I once foolishly volunteered to R&R the parking brakes on a friend's '69 Corvette. At that time I had about 200+ brake jobs under my belt, on all kinds of cars with no problems. A quick check of a reputable Corvette restoration web site (parking brake section) started with the words "This is the most difficult repair I've ever made on a Corvette". Did I listen? Noooooo.

    Everything comes out easily, but reassembly is hellishly difficult, involving dental floss and open flame. Get professional advice about the CTS before starting this job. (I haven't done a CTS yet [it might be easy], but ask around first.)
