Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan
The (front) cv-joint broke in half (while driving down the road) May 2008. Van sat in driveway approx. 1 yr. We just replaced the cv joint, but now the van wont move because the back wheels have locked up. We've spent too much time, and tried many things--no go! They seem to be solidly locked in place.?...?
Chock the front tires, loosen up the lug nutes on the rear tires, jack the rear end up, uncap the adjuster dust caps on the back of the rear drums, either use a brake spoon or straight blade screwdriver and turn the star adjuster while spinning the wheel until you have no resistance. If this does not work remove the rear tires and hit the sides of the drums with a small sledge hammer or hammer to loosen & break up the rust, When you get movement on the drum, hit it betweeen the studs. Be patient, this may take some time.
