How to get drum pads off a 2000 dodge caravan


The pad drums of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan can wear with use. Heat buildup in the brakes can glaze, warp or crack the drum. If that happens, replacement of the drum is the only way to fix it. In most cases, you can remove the rear drums, replace them with a new set and leave the existing shoes on the van. Take a minute and inspect the brake shoes thoroughly while you have the drums off the van.


  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the rear of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan with a lug wrench. Do not take them off the wheel studs.
  2. Raise the rear of the van with a jack and support it on a set of jack stands. Place the stands under the rear suspension, making sure they are secure. Remove the lug nuts from the wheel studs and pull off the rear wheels.
  3. Check the rear drum where the wheel studs come through for retaining clips. These are used during the manufacturing process; and if they are still on your van, they need to be removed. Pry the clip off the wheel stud with a flat head screwdriver and discard them. Most vehicles will have two clips on each brake drum.
  4. Grasp the brake drum on the outer edges and pull it straight off the wheel studs and brake pads. Discard the old drum and slide the new drum into place, aligning the holes in the drum with the wheel studs. Push the drum in until it seats completely. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the van.
  5. Position the wheel back on the wheel studs and install the lug nuts by hand. Raise the back of the van with a jack and remove the jack stands from under the suspension. Lower the van to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

2000 dodge status non and I have brake pressure at right rear and left get nothing on other two have replaced master power booster lines wheel cyls callers and still no brakes have followed bleeding...


When you do a brake job with drums. You have to adjust the brakes by hand the first time. It doesn't hurt to put a little lude on the slack adjusters. Also if your reusing the brake drums, you need to grind or file the lip off the edge of the drum. this will throw off the adjustment.

Remove rear drum brakes


Hit the drum with a hammer to loosen it up. The drums wont come off easy because the shoes form a litte bit of a ridge in the drum

Right rear brake is locking up on my 2000 dodge neon. what do i do?


Check to see if it is drum or disc first. Depending on which one it is, it could be a simple adjuster problem for drum brakes or if it is disc breaks you may have a bad caliper. The only way to find out is to take it apart and look at what the car has for brakes.

My 1996 dodge caravan emergency brake is on and the cable broke ! howcan i get the brake off ?


You'll need to remove both rear wheels. On the inside behind the drums/or/ on the rotors , you'll see the cable coming in from the backing plate. Remove the cables for each wheel and pry back the brake shoes. Eventually though, you'll have to replace and adjust the cables in order to pass your states inpection levels. Thank you, Dana

Rear drums on breaks 2000 dodge caravan


Make sure you don't have the Emergency Brake on (Hand Brake).This will engage the Brake Shoes to the Drum making it very hard to pull the drum.I am assuming that you know ,have read how to remove the drum.

How do I get the rear brake drums off 2000 dodge grand caravan


you can tap on the drum with a hammer they should come right off but don't beat on them as they will break if you hit to hard and if the brake shoes are to tight they need to be adjusted looser before you try to remove the drums
