    My 2010 Cobalt's LT rear brake hardware is different then ones found on 2005-2009 Cobalts.
    See image for details. Anyone know why Chevy changed the design on the 2010?

    Anyone know of a "HOW TO" replace rear brakes shoes video ?
    I checked YouTube but came up blank.

    Thanks

    Here are repair instructions, sorry no video.
    This style rear brake setup is a very similar to the style found on most older drum brake vehicles.
    In my opinion much easier to work on than those with the horseshoe style spring on the rear brakes.

    Thank You.
    Q: there are several links to other inspection, replacement docs. Is is possible to see those links?
