    P100 rear axle drums , are they f**king welded on or what ???!!!

    I know this is a question about my daily but as I also know a few people use these axles under rods I figured I'd ask .

    Went to change the shoes in my Ford P100's rear drums the other day and hit bit of a problem . On taking the wheel off I saw that it looks like the drum is secured by the half-shaft end cap so I undid the 5 bolts and popped the shaft out only to be confronted by a mahuusive nut sitting round the axle end , the bugger's at least a 2" double hex and none of my sockets would go near it (You'd need a pretty thin walled socket to get in there too) .

    Figured I must be going wrong somewhere , surely you don't need to go through all this palava just to get the drum off right ? Had a look everywhere else and can't see any other way of the drum being secured . Gave everything a sound belting with a complane and the drum's having none of it , and yes I had the handbrake off before trying

    So do I have to go out and buy a huge socket to do the job or am I missing something here ? All help/****-taking gratefully recieved

    Sorry mate, I don't know how the drums come off & the only ****-taking I can come up with is you've spelt received incorrectly. I hope this helps though I doubt it.
    How'd the weekend go? Well, at the moment it looks like a dolphin that's been caught in a boats propeller.

    You haven't done something really daft like miss a countersunk retaining screw or anything have you..? What I know about Ford P100's could be written on the back of a postage stamp with a very large crayon but I wouldn't have thought that a hub would be such a pain to remove...

    Al ; as always a well thought out and considered reply , I consider my **** removed

    Dave ; Not that I could see mate , there's naff all on the face of the drum other that the half-shaft gubbins in the middle . I too can't imagine the job's this much of a pain , its not like it was designed by Citroen or anything , sure I'm missing something simple though ...

    Ratty the book says "take wheel off, then remove spire clips from the studs and take off drum" The 5 bolts you undid are the halfshaft to hub bolts, they dont hold on drum, the big fecker int the midle behind them is the hub nut ( about 200-250 lb/ft).
    When I did a P100 (sierra yours init) it had the thin spire clips and most broke when I got at em (the went over the hedge) and I had to beat the living out of the drum but eventualy of he popped.
    Hope this helps.
    Martin.

    Hi Martin , can't say as I spotted any clips bt I'll hopefully get a chance for another look later this week and I'll keep an eye out . I take it by spire clip you mean some sort of circlip ?

    Sounds like someone has replaced the rear brake shoes on a 2CV at some time in his past......

    The spire clips are flat and thin like the sort of thing that you put behind a fibre board trim panel for a self tapper to screw into, only these slide over the stud's to hold the drum on when the wheel nuts are undone. Yes the drum should be a slightly loose fit, but as you have found out they like to sieze on, and quite often the spire clips have long gone.

    Heat, thump, heat, thump, heat, pull!

    When you have it off, file out the centre until it is a sliding fit before replacing. You may have to do the stud holes as well. I did this on some Ford in the past, Granada, I think.
    The problem I had was the edge of the centre hole was rolled outwards so as I pulled the drum it 'turned' the lip inwards and held tighter.

    Good luck.
