I am sorry that you felt the need to leave negative feedback without letting me know that you were not happy with my response. If your question was not answered to your satisfaction, I wish you had not accepted the answer and had let me know, and I would have been happy to work with you until I made sure that you were satisfied with my advice. Also, I would have much preferred having you not accept the answer than to have my feedback affected. We work very hard here at Just Answer to make sure our customers are satisfied and our feedback is very important. In the future, please do not accept an expert's answer if you are not satisfied with their response as your satisfaction is paramount. Thanks.
I have the car up on a jack in my shop now. No nothing under the car. I have the console in the car apart to get at the e.brake and it was tight so shoes worn to no more adjuster of course. I still can't get the drum to turn as the adjuster is all the way out and the stupid starwheel of course is being stubborn. Is it safe to spray some penetrating oil on it to free it. I have done a fair amount of drum and disc brake jobs and never had to spray the starwheel but this one has shallow groves and it is tight and rusty.
Good luck; let me know how it goes; I'm here for you :) Regards, Howard
I got it off and first time I ever saw this in all the drum brakes I have done. The front lining had come loose from the shoe on both sides. Got the new shoes and checked all the hardware and put em back together. getting the e.brake back together without the proper joining tool was a pain but two small screwdrivers did it to rotate the wheel to get the cables reconnected. took her out after i bled the brakes, set em up and it works just like new. Thanks for your help. It's late and I got to get to bed. I'll do the accept tomorrow when I get home from work and give you some postive feedback. Again I am sorry for the negative, but now I know how this works and I want to make it right.
I am so happy that you got the car fixed. Sometimes you see things you never dreamed; I had a lady one time who turned her car off and the car kept running; quite a challenge to figure that one out :) Do me a favor; if you could just let management at Just Answer know about our problem with the negative feedback and that we got things worked out; maybe they would be willing to retract it; that's all I want. If you should ever need anything else in the future, I would love to help you and you can request me if you should like. Best wishes and enjoy your weekend :) Regards, Howard
I took the car to work today and It ran and braked just like new. Thanks for your help and I sent that retraction request to customer service. Hope to work with you again in the future if I need help. Also, am I supposed to pay again Howard? When I clicked accept it said I already paid for the answer and do I wish to pay for the second answer.

I am thrilled you have "your baby" back up and running :) My wife's car is a 1989 Ford Probe GT that she bought herself as a graduation present from college. She's been driving it ever since and has 306,000 miles on it!! I know how frustrating it is when you can't get your car to work right. Don't worry about paying; if you could just get he negative feedback erased, that would make my day. Anytime you should need help in the future, please feel free to request me and it would be my pleasure to work with you. Hope you have great week! Regards, Howard
I am trying to get it erased but admin has not contacted me yet. meanwhile I'll put some positive on and maybe that will help. The car is running great now. I just have to finish cleaning it up before my wife beats me. Thanks again.
The negative feedback has been erased and your positive feedback is up :) Thank you so much! Please let me know if I can help you in any way in the future; it would be my pleasure. Have a wonderful week! Regards, Howard
