well the weather was gorgeous today, and i took my ss16 out of the shed to clean it up. This is where the problem comes in. I brought it up the garage and when i went to stop, I had no brakes!! I got underneath and saw the band/brake lining hanging out. 

Here's the question ?? 

How do I change It? It looks like I have to pull the axle down to get the screw in the side of the rear.( I am looking at the spare rearend) Is there an easier way? any suggestion would be greatly appreciated

There is no easy way to do it. You will have to drop the rearend to get the old one out and new one in.

BHTS hit the nail, have to pull rear end out to get to it properly. I would drop rear with rear hitch plate attached. I believe McMaster Carr or Graingers carry the brake liner material and the rivets. I think it was Larrybl I bought an extra piece he had last year, maybe he can tell you where he got it. You can use rivets to hole it, I have also seen guys use a thin layer of JB Weld to attach it.
