Re: how do i get the drums off my 05 holden rodeo
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

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
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.
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.
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.
It can be tightened by just rotating, as this is the automatic adjustment that occurs as the show wears down..........but, you have to manually pry away the locking tab to be able to rotate anticlockwise to loosen it....you will notice this.....
You probably have a bad wheel speed sensor, Most likely the sensor is telling your antilock system to activate, causing your brake pedal to pulse under your foot, you may have to take it and get it diagnosed. or check the wiring harness's, make sure they are properly connected, behind the front brake caliper if your vehicle is equiped with 4 wheel antilock, and the rear antilock may be either behind your brake drum or caliper, depending on disc or drum brakes on the rear. Some Vehichles have a single speed sensor located usually near the center of your rear axle,instead of individual sensors on the rear. look for a wiring harness connecting to the rear axle. It will likely be the only wiring connected into your rear axle. Hope this helps
