Re: how do you get the rear drum off a 2002 sedona?
You did remove the 2 phillips headed assembly line screws , yes ? big phillips screws that hold the drums on while coming down the assembly line .other than that they can just be stuck at the flange they go over , a big hammer and a good whack usually solves that , cheers .

You're lacking some info about this issue. Who replaced the brake pads?
It sounds like they may have been incorrectly installed.
Another thing... You say "brake pads" but say nothing about the brake shoes. This leads me to believe that the front pads were changed and the rear brake shoes were not.
If you do not know how to change them yourself, go to a reputable place to get them checked. Be specific about your problem and have them check the front rotors and brake pads and the rear brake shoes and the drums.
It is quite possible that the rear drums need to be replaced or turned. Drums and rotors are fairly inexpensive so I would consider replacing them BOTH.
With a little more info, I'm sure someone here could help more
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.
Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.
Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.
If you changing the rear shoes, remove both wheels and drums, and dissassemble one side at a time and replace, as you will have the other side to compare it to. Remember it is like a mirror image. (Also, take photo's)
You can go to Alldata online. The web site has the information you are looking for.
The back side of the drum for the rear brakes there is a little whole covered by a rubber cap.
I would remove the rubber cap. The inside of the brake drum there is a gear called a star gear. You need to take a flat tip screw driver and move the star gear so the tension is taken off the pads. Then you have to pry off the drum. IF this seems to difficult you should take the vehicle to a local mechanic for brake service.
