I don't believe there are bolts on that. If there are you can see them when you take the wheel off. If no bolts here is what you need to do.

1. Take off tire

2. Back off brake shoes.

3. Get a hammer and beat on it,be careful if you want to reuse them they can break if hit to hard. An air hammer works the best, right on the hub between the studs. I know it sound simple but sometimes they really get stuck on.
Hope that helps.

How to get drum pads off a 2000 dodge caravan


The pad drums of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan can wear with use. Heat buildup in the brakes can glaze, warp or crack the drum. If that happens, replacement of the drum is the only way to fix it. In most cases, you can remove the rear drums, replace them with a new set and leave the existing shoes on the van. Take a minute and inspect the brake shoes thoroughly while you have the drums off the van.


  1. Loosen the lug nuts on the rear of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan with a lug wrench. Do not take them off the wheel studs.
  2. Raise the rear of the van with a jack and support it on a set of jack stands. Place the stands under the rear suspension, making sure they are secure. Remove the lug nuts from the wheel studs and pull off the rear wheels.
  3. Check the rear drum where the wheel studs come through for retaining clips. These are used during the manufacturing process; and if they are still on your van, they need to be removed. Pry the clip off the wheel stud with a flat head screwdriver and discard them. Most vehicles will have two clips on each brake drum.
  4. Grasp the brake drum on the outer edges and pull it straight off the wheel studs and brake pads. Discard the old drum and slide the new drum into place, aligning the holes in the drum with the wheel studs. Push the drum in until it seats completely. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the van.
  5. Position the wheel back on the wheel studs and install the lug nuts by hand. Raise the back of the van with a jack and remove the jack stands from under the suspension. Lower the van to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

I have a1999 dodge durango and I am trying to change the rear brakes but I cant get the drum off, it seems as though their is a screw that is holding it in place. do you know if it has a screw that I am...


Ensure the parking brake is Off.

If necessary, remove the adjusting hole cover from the backing plate and using a suitable tool, back off the shoe adjuster.

If the drum is difficult to remove, insert an 8mm bolt into the hole on the drum to push it off.

My break pads are fine in the back but they still grind


This is usually caused by rust build up on the outer rim of the brake drum. You can have the drum turned to remove the ridge & rust or remove the drums, make sure all brake hardware is secure & there are no broken parts & simply wire wheel the outer rim to remove the rust. Use a garden hose to wash out any dust & use compressed air to dry. Put drums back on & problem solved. Good luck!

How do i remove the brake drum on my 1996 dodge caravan


You remove the tire/wheel assembly and pull it off. Make sure you have removed the factory installed wheel lock tabs on your studs if they are still there.Discard them because they're not needed.

I need to know how to take out the drum from my rear tire


You can go to Alldata online. The web site has the information you are looking for.
The back side of the drum for the rear brakes there is a little whole covered by a rubber cap.
I would remove the rubber cap. The inside of the brake drum there is a gear called a star gear. You need to take a flat tip screw driver and move the star gear so the tension is taken off the pads. Then you have to pry off the drum. IF this seems to difficult you should take the vehicle to a local mechanic for brake service.

Back brake


On drum brakes there is a pad adjustment wheel, use it to back the pads off far enough from the drum that the edge of the drum clears the pads
