yes every time you touch the brakes there will be heat , if your in city or alot of traffic you will have more heat. if you havent had a brake job in a couple of years it might be time if your rotors are glazed your going to be braking longer to stop causes more heat
You will have to turn the drum,and adjust accordingly,adjust them little by little,until the drum drags on the brake shoes,adjust them until they drag,but you can still turn the drum by hand,you might want to remove the drum first,just to make sure the brake shoes are not too worn,and need replacing.If this was a t all helpful,please rate,thank you.
We're on our second Sedona and have had this problem on both. In our case it was the front brake rotors. The dealer told me that they're not made thick enough to handle heat loads. They are super-sensitive to heating and warp easily.
With my Sedonas the pads were not retracting completely, sometimes dragging on the rotors (not enough to notice this while driving) causing them to heat even when the brakes were not being applied and causing this front end shaking in the steering wheel when braking. When it got worse, the brake pedal would vibrate too. When we would take it up the mountains the long braking periods on the downslopes would make it much worse as the rotors heated up. The dealership had them machined but the issue persisted and ended up replacing the front rotors.
Replacing rotors is not a difficult task if you're mechanically-inclined and have the right tools. I've done it on many vehicles (though not my Sedonas as they were warranty jobs) and it's usually less expensive to replace them with new ones from your parts store than to have a brake shop work on them.
