Drum Brake Self-Adjuster 96 Ford Contour

I have a 96 Ford Contour with rear drum brakes. I've replaced the shoes, but the spring on the self-adjuster unit has rusted away. I've been unable to locate either the spring or the full self-adjuster unit.

I'm able find the adjusting spring set all over the place, but those kits do not include a replacement spring for the self adjuster.

I've tried the typical parts stores, including the Ford dealer who says the part is discontinued.

Does anyone have suggestions on where to look?

  4. Click the link and discover that they are included from this manufacture. AC Delco, it figures that GM makes them as these are Bendix Braking Systems.

  5. Thanks, but they are "Not in stock" there. I was excited when I found that link previously as well.
