Question about 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan
I am thinking you mean the rear brakes? On the front you do not need to take the hub off. The rear has a drum if you are lucky you can keep tapping it with a hammer while pulling on it from side to side and work it off the brake shoes. If not there should be a little indented place about .3" wide and 1-1.2" long that can be broke out of either the drum or the backing plate. This changes from vehicle to vehicle. After the tab is broke out you can then get to the adjuster, usually using a screwdriver. You need to back the adjuster down until you can get the drum to slide off. You will find a build-up of rust scale on the drum, that is what keeps it from sliding off. Make sure you knock the scale off, use some sort of dremel tool before putting the drum back on. After you get the drum on adjust you brakes back out using the tab hole that you knocked out. They sell a rubber plug to put back in the hole to keep contaminates out.
