Question about 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan
I just did this today. The drum may be rusted onto the hub. On the left side srum (driver's side), I had to turn the star wheel down to loosen the brakes on the drum. Sprayed the drum where it meets the axle/hub with PB Blaster. Then using the 2 threaded holes next to the wheel studs, put a puller on there to remove the drum. Hammering did not work for me. I'm doing the other side tomorrow - I think the starwheel needs to be turned the oposite direction but I'm not sure yet.

Looks like something has come loose,sometime you can stick a screwdriver and tap it with a hamer and jarr it loose and the brake will collapse

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.
