If you can knock the old one out, get the new one in position, and do not mind destroying a wheel nut or two, I once watched a tire technician use a wheel nut , some washers, and an air gun with socket to pull the stud into position with air pressure.

Broken wheel stud right rear wheel with drum brakes on 2006 dodge caravan. Cant get the new stud to go in. I dont have enough room for the stud to go in. Do i need to remove the wheel bearing? What will be...


To remove the broken stud use a punch and drive it out with a hammer back towards the backing plate. BY turning the axle around you will find a position or you may have to remove a brake shoe to help with the installation of the new stud. When you have it in place use larger nuts and pull it into place with the stud nut.. You may not be able to simply put the stud straight in but may have to start a bit of an angle and turn the axle to allow the stud to feed in.

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 need to replace the rear lugs on a 2005 caravan with drum brakes. I can't figure out how to get enough clearance for the lugs to come all the way out.


Start all the wheel studs into place with a hammer and a punch,then you need to find a wide nut that will go over the stud threads without touching them and then put a wheel nut on the stud.Crank the nut down and the stud will pull into place as the nut gets tightened up,use an impact gun if you have one.If you just can't get the studs out,then turn the stud to a place where it has room to come out and beat it out with a heavy hammer,then draw the new ones in as described.

2000 Dodge Caravan....broken wheel studs...


Yeah , it's a fairly simple repair, All the wheel studs must be replaced and lug nuts also.Closely examine the wheel or get competent tyre replacement company to double check for damage ! Remove the brake disc caliper and brake disc itself (usually 2 cross head screws) , tap off (gently) it may be stuck thru corrosion / rust etc , Broken studs can be knocked out(towards drive shaft ) of the hub assy with a suitable drift and hammer (splined into hub) . The studs are a servicable replacement part. Check all other wheel nuts as this is usually a result from poor fixing or wheel replacement recently .. Good luck

My 1996 dodge caravan emergency brake is on and the cable broke ! howcan i get the brake off ?


You'll need to remove both rear wheels. On the inside behind the drums/or/ on the rotors , you'll see the cable coming in from the backing plate. Remove the cables for each wheel and pry back the brake shoes. Eventually though, you'll have to replace and adjust the cables in order to pass your states inpection levels. Thank you, Dana

Can't get the rear drum off my 2000 dodge caravan.


After the wheel is removed you need to spray penetrating oil around the lug studs. Next, hit the drum with a hammer between the studs until it pops, now pull it off.

Where is the belt adjuster to relaese the belt from pulleys


This engine configuration probably uses an adjustable idler bearing and wheel assembly to apply tension to the serpentine belt that drives almost all the accessories. You'll need to loosen, (DO NOT REMOVE!) the hub bolt, then turn the adjusting bolt behind the wheel to provide the slack you need.
Or, did you mean the timing belt? That one has an oil-filled tensioner that requires clamp compression to collapse down the right clearance. Did that help? Let us know...accordianman
