I am trying to do a friend a favor and change his brakes on a 2002 Big Bear. I cannot get this gold brake drum cover off. I am scared I am going to crack the panel if i pry a screw driver between them as you do with a Honda. What is the secret to getting it off? Jay <_<

I had to do this with my '01 Big Bear. I'm trying to remember what I did...I think I just kept tapping it with a rubber mallet, all the way around. Try prying it a bit if that doesn't work, just don't damage it.

The drums might have developed a bad lip from where thepads wear in it. This allows the pads to keep the drum from coming off. If memory serves me right, a big bear has cable brakes. Make sure the cable is adjusted loose. Wiggle the cam arm back and forth to make sure it is not stuck on. Find the inpection hole in the backing plate. Hose it with water while you spin the axle to help get out any dirt in it. Other than that, t is a pain in the ass. Good luck and stay cool. Broke brake parts are worse than stuck on brake parts
