Ask Your Own Chevy Question

Correct

the e-brake shoes are under the back rotors this is a drum/hat e-brake system i think you will find if you remove the rear the rotors the small e-brake shows will be worn out and they need to be replace then adjusted out and that should fix this issue

if you have any questions please ask
