i have a 97 1.8 celica, i have gone to change the rear shoes, fitted 1 side, but im unable to replace the drum, slackened the ajuster, and the handbrake cable, dismantled the other side, to check fitting, all looks ok, i now have both sets of shoes fitted, but niether side drum will go on, any help is gratefully recieved.

Did you turn the adjuster all the way down? You might also have to move the shoes around a bit in order for them to fit.

Are you using new drums or reusing the old ones? If you're reusing the old ones make sure to sand down the lip on the drum.

I'm not sure. Check the vin number on www.toyodiy.com and double check the part number.
