Question about 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan

Rear rotor stuck on (has drum brakes for emegency brakes)

I have a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan AWD. I am trying to remove the rear rotor but it's stuck on. I have tried penatrating spray oil, hitting with a rubber mallet. I see there is an access that might contain a star adjuster but it seems to be too close to the frame. There is a hole in the frame do I use a tool to back off the star or is there another way?

Have the same problem after backing off the star adjuster and I just used a good 5 pound sledge hammer got the drums off. 
Wear ear plugs and gloves, good luck and hope this helps.

The center hole on the drum is the culprit of your situation if the star washer has been turned in all the way. you will need to beat around it firmly very hard for awhile untill it will come off. its frozen to the hub assembly

How do you pull the rotor off a 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan?


I am pretty sure you are trying to remove the rear rotor, correct?

The rear rotor also has the e-brake shoes that are on the back side. The rotor is hung up on the shoes of the e-brake. Try tapping the side of the hat of the rotor with a hammer while you pull. this will often release the grip that the ebrake shoes have on the hat of the rotor.

How do you get the drum off a 1999 dodge caravan


Take a look here:



c17hydro_171.gif
Many times it is necessary to retract the shoes slightly by turning the adjuster
star (inside the brake drum) to remove the drum.

If the drum is difficult to remove, remove the plug from the rear brake support plate. Push the self adjuster lever away from the star wheel using a thin screwdriver. The lever and star wheel are accessed through the hole on the rear brake support plate. Rotate the star wheel using a brake adjusting tool to retract the shoes.

How do I install rear brakes and rotors on a 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan


For Disc Brakes...simply use a 7mm allen wrench to remove the 2 bolts from the inside of the caliper and use a large C-clamp to put pressure on the hydrolic piston. The two pads slide right off for replacement. Reverse directions to install new ones.
