Once the whel is off - it wil come off..
If there is a center bolt over the drum (I dont think there is) remove it.
The drum will be stubourn so it might take a few smacks from the back side to pop it loose..

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

How do you remove the rear brake drums on a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara. I cannot get the drum to come off and I have never had this problem on any other car before.


These drums should have a couple of small extra holes on about the same circle as the wheel studs which actually have thread in them for screwing in forcing bolts to pull the drum off. The thread should be M8*1.25 (a fairly standard Suzuki metric thread) and if 2 bolts are screwed in EVENLY (ie: half a turn each, alternately), then removal should be a piece of cake. Sometimes, light tapping at the other points between the other wheel studs may assist. Of course, if the drum is very badly worn, there will be a great deal of resistance to pulling the drums STRAIGHT off. I recommend SPINNING the drum while screwing the bolts in. This may be very hard to do, so replace all the wheel nuts (no wheel) so no thread damage will occur, and use a long bar across 2 protected studs to turn the axle. Then screw the bolts in a bit more, and turn the axle a bit more, and repeat. You will have to unscrew the wheel nuts a bit as the drum comes off.

No. I just replaced my rear drums. Just a "light" tapping with a hammer on the vehicle side of the drums and they should come loose.
