I am working on a 1996 Plymouth Breeze, rear drum brake system. Are there any detailed pictures available to assist in putting the brakes back together with new shoes, etc.? I am having difficulty putting the adjusting wheel mechanism back together. Thanks.

The information I have posted below should be everything that you need. If you need a picture blown up or have problems drop me a note. Thanks
See Figures 3 through 14
Regardless of their wear pattern, when brake shoes are replaced on one side of the vehicle, they must also be replaced on the other side. It is advisable, however, to complete one side before beginning the other.
On this vehicle, the parking brake actuating lever is permanently attached to the trailing brake shoe assembly. Do not attempt to remove it from the original brake shoe assembly or reuse the original actuating lever on a replacement brake shoe assembly. All replacement brake shoe assemblies for this vehicle must have the actuating lever as part of the trailing brake shoe assembly.
The trailing brake shoe assemblies used on the rear brakes of this vehicle are unique (handed) for the left and right side of the vehicle. Care must be taken to ensure that the brake shoes are properly installed on their correct side of the vehicle. When the trailing shoes are properly installed on their correct side of the vehicle, the parking brake actuating lever will be positioned under the brake shoe web.
The upper brake shoe return spring and adjuster mechanism actuating spring are unique for each side of the vehicle. The springs are colored for identification. The left side springs are green and the right side springs are blue.
