For disassembly of the rear Drumbrake remove the small screw. The drum can be easily removed, when no rust or corrosion is there. If so, you have to use a big puller. The burr on the outer edges of the drum can be removed with a Carbid-ductor or a File. The brake surface itself can recleaned with sand paper. The surface of the Axle - shaft has to be clean as well.
The strong Springs for the brake pads can be removed and installed with a strong hook. Useful : DC-part : W 116589016200 for 5,38 Euro incl.Tax Federzieher

Brake pads can be riveted, but you will need a special tool and a little bit of Training. The tool you can buy or make it by yourself. New brake pads are expensive (A 461 420 00 20, 4 pieces 310 Euro incl. Tax ). They are then glued. The brake pads are different in size. The shorter one is the one pionting into driving direction.!

The short tool will be fixed to a vice. On that the rivet will be placed (see picture ), the pad in the middle placed, (rounding to the top), good squeezed on and with the longer driver the opening of the Rivets on the pad inside round riveted. You rivet alternating from the middle to both sides. With that the Pads are connected tight! Nietenwerkzeug
Now the automatic Adjuster has to be pre-setted again.
Turn Screws 1 (not the cogwheel 2) to make sure you have the right dimension for A = 70 mm. Please position the adjuster in the middle. With this the pads have the same distance to the drum. Do a test drive, brake several times when driving forwards and backwards !

Buy them as a 5 m-Bunch (Spare Part Center : 5m Brake pipe , 4,75 mm, green : 8,72 Euro incl.Tax / Nut for the Pipes: 0,92 Euro incl Tax.) Some Garages have a tool for making the flanges and you can get this done buy giving a tip or a small fee. In the Picture is a degasser (with plastic cap) shown.
