Disk brakes are not adjustable. As they wear out, they adjust themselves through the pedal pressure and the liquid that goes down the tubes. Old drum brakes, when you remove the wheel, they have a small "window" wide enough for a flat screwdriver to go in and twist the adjusting screw that looks like a cogwheel. Newer versions of drum brakes also have self adjustable parts, that are hold together with a set of expanding springs and tooth wheels.
Early wear of brakes is a common "illness" of all vehicles with automatic gear box.

I'd get your brakes checked out. Check for abs trouble codes. I know some of the national brand auto stores will check po codes for free, not sure about abs codes?

That sounds dangerous to me, get it checked out. Till you get it fixed, set your parking brake when you stop, that should help.

You need to check your brakes ASAP. You may have metal on metal on your front pads. You may have a bearing problem if the brakes are in good shape. But check it out as soon as you can to prevent further damage.

I locked my keys and remote in my 2006 dodge dakota pickup and wondered if there was another way to trip the locks to open it up


Your best bet is to take the VIN # to a dodge dealer, and proof of ownership, and have them cut you a new key. Or call a locksmith. No matter how you get in you'll cause more damage than they will charge you to get a key.

How to get brake drums off of 1998 Dodge Dakota?


There is a ridge that the brake shoe is grabbing against. Look for the little slot at the bottom of the drum and turn the adjuster either upwards or downwards...turning the drum to see when the drumm rotates. These get "stuck" very often. You just need to pop that thing off.

True fact here. You're gonna have to knock that thing off. Honestly, when you put the new shoes on, it will not be hard like it is taking off.

Good luck and post with other questions if you have them.
