    In an earlier contribution to this discussion,
    In that case, unless there two different designs of shoe with the same
    diameter, and you have the wrong ones (unlikely!), there's something wrong
    with the way in which you're trying to fit them - which is holding them
    further apart than they should be.

    BTW, *please* try to use the right terminology for the sake of other
    readers. As has already been pointed out by someone else, what you have are
    brake *shoes* - not pads, and they fit inside *drums* - not rotors.

    [The rear brakes on your car are in fact *two* separate braking systems -
    disc brakes with hydraulically operated pads to stop you, and drum brakes
    with manually operated shoes (via the hand-brake lever) for parking. It's
    the drum (parking) brakes which are the subject of the discussion. OK, the
    disc (rotor) for the disc brakes happens to be made from the same bit of
    metal as the drum for the parking brakes - but that's beside the point!]

    I apologize for the incorrect terminology and will be more proper in
    the future. The
    mechanic was unable to get to the brakes and drum this morning, but we
    will be
    revisiting soon to have the evaporator core replaced for the AC and
    I'll see if we can
    get it looked at then. In the meantime, I'm going to look at the
    cable adjuster in the
    console to see if that makes a difference.

    Thank you.
