I was trying to pull my rear drums to take a look at the condition of my brakes. I tried the old M8x1.25 bolt trick but that didnt work. I then resorted to trying to gorilla the drum off withi a long screwdriver/prybar. While I got the drum to move a bit, I mostly succeeded in mangling the hell out of my brake shield.
Now I get this low pitch grating/scratching/squeeling noise from that wheel (driver rear). Is this as a result of the mangled brake shield interfering with the drum or the wheel itself? I know this was a result of the brake shield because I didnt have the noise prior to messing with it.
Is my only solution to replace the brake shield? And if so, does that require pulling the whole axle?
