Drums are hard to get off. behind the drums you will see a hole, if not it is covered by a little rubber grommet. remove the grommet and get a small screwdriver. inside the hole, on or near the brake cylinder, there is a metal gear that has to be spun. use the screwdriver to spin the wheel. if that doesnt work then try loosing the fitting for the fluid to release pressure on the shoes and try prying of the drum working both sides

What kind of rear brakes on my 2002 Caravan

Without looking I'm going to take a guess and say drum brakes but to be positive if you don't know what your looking for call the Dodge dealer and give them the vin number and they will tell You right away if you know what to look for just lay down and look behind the rear tire and if you see a caliper you have disc brakes if not you have drum brakes good luck

How to replace a rear brake cylinder and new brake shoes?

remove rear wheel , pull off the brake drum , you may have to use two flat blade screwdrivers one eachside to prize the drum off,clamp the flexable brake hose behind the brake assembly so fluid does'nt drainout,at the rear of the back plate you will need to disssconnect the hand brake cable usually a spring needs compressing by hand and then are able to disconnect the cable from its seating,take a picture of the brake shoe assembly before dismantling it so you know where the components go when re building, there will be spring loaded pin holding the shoes in place ,with a pair of pliers push and twist the flat washer so the pin head comes through the retaining washer you should then be able to lift away the shoe's and mechanism , next at the rear of the cylinder disconnect the brake pipe and the two retaining screws , fittings is the reverse , if you can get a workshop manual for the vehicle this will give step by step guide a tips for that exact vehicle, once back to gether unclamp the brake hose and bleed the brakes , take your time and if not sure if it looks right have a look at the picture or alternatively take the other wheel and drum off to check good luck

The brakeline busted and cannot get drum off 2001 rodeo sport

on the backside of drum there should be a couple of slots. take a mirror and flashlight to look inside. you will need a couple of flat head screw drivers will be fine. adjust the brakes in to back them off of the drum itself. you may have to take a hammer and smack the corner of it to take ff.

05 hyundai elantra rear drum brake

Hi Peter,

The drums can get really stuck onto the center hub. If you look at your brake drum, you will see that there are 2 small holes in the drum between the lug stud holes. These holes are threaded. They are placed here just for this putpose. You can screw a bolts into these holes and "push" the drum off of the hub. Turn one scew a couple turns then turn the other srew a couple turns so as to push the drum off evenly and not cause it to bend or warp. Most brake drums like this use a 10mm X 1.5 bolt thread. If you get a couple of bolts from the local parts supplier, you can have them check to make sure they are the correct size by having them screw the bolts into a new drum that they may have in stock. You will need bolts with at least 1-1/2" thread length.

Can not get rear drum off to replace brake shoes

look on the back side of the brake backing plate. there should be a little rubber plug, remove it, and use a screwdriver to back the adjuster off, and relieve the pressure on the brake shoes, and the drum will come right off.

When backing up the wheels seem to be locking and getting stuck makes a horable noise my husband put new drums on and still the same thing is it a sensor or something

no its not a sensor, check all brake hardware on the wheels that are binding. look for a broken or missing spring, broke or missing pins that hold shoes on. its the brake shoes that are locking on you when backing up and they seem fine going forward. dont forget to check the self adjuster for free movement screw in and out, if they are tight take off and lubricate/clean so they screw freely.

How to adjust rear brakes on 1993 chevy k1500 4x4

should be a regular break shoe setup, there should be a hole in the backing plate to adjust with a screwdriver but i find it's better to pull the brake drum off and blow out all the dust (just don't breath it) then you can check to make sure the wheel cylinders aren't leaking and all the springs are good. it's also a good idea to pull off the brake adjusters to clean and lubricate them. if you need to replace anything and your not familiar with brake shoe setups then do one side at a time and remember short shoe to the front long shoe to the rear.
