Question about 2001 Isuzu Rodeo
I triad installing new brakes and I can't get the screws to come off
Their are rubber cover's over the part of the screw between the calliper and the holding frame. Slide them a little and see if their is grease inside the cover. If not they are probably seized this is a common problem with them. spray penetrating oil inside the rubber and leave them a while. When you get them to move don't try to fully unscrew them at once. Unscrew about half turn then tighten again while spraying in more oil. Repeat this a few time's because if you try to unscrew them fully first time them most likely they will break.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
It is a good idea to only disassemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference.
The drum brakes are self-adjusting and require a manual adjustment only after the brake shoes have been replaced, or when the length of the adjusting screw has been changed while performing some other service operation.
Fig. Fig. 2: When using a brake adjustment gauge, first measure the inside diameter of the drum (top) and then adjust the brakes shoes to the proper outside diameter (bottom)
Fig. Fig. 3: Measure brake shoe thickness in several places around the shoe
Inspect the brake shoes for wear using a ruler or Vernier caliper. Compare measurements to the brake specifications chart. If the lining is thinner than specification or there is evidence of the lining being contaminated by brake fluid or oil, replace all brake pad assemblies (a complete axle set).

An impact driver, No. 3 phillips screwdriver bit, and a hammer may be needed to remove the retaining screw. It is fairly easy to destroy the screw slots using an ordinary phillips screwdriver to remove the tightly driven screw (see photo).
