SOURCE: remove the rear brake drum on 2004 Dodge Caraven

No just make sure your emergency cable is off and take a large hammer an hit it around the edge or corner lightly and spin at the same time also try pulling with your other hand as you spin this is a technique all mechanics use its very unlikely that you will have to loosen up the shoes with a brake spoon.REMEMBER THE OUTER ROUNDED EDGE ONLY WHERE ITS THE THICKIST.

How do I get rear brake drum off?


You should jack up securely the rear end, and then remove the lugnuts to the wheels and remove the wheel.

Then, you may need a heavy hammer to tap on the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock positions of the rear brake drum to loosen it up.

Here are instructions from Chilton/Haynes manual:

You need to manually adjust the brakes after putting new brake shoes on. The automatic adjuster has adjusted for wear in the old shoes which will make the new shoes too tight.

Dodge neon 1998 brakes are sqecking it not the brake it


You stopped short on your last sentence. Here is your solution.
Remove the rear wheels and brake drums. Take sand paper - coarse and sand the top of the brakes - do NOT sand on the drums with coarse - use 220 or finer sand paper on your brake drums.
This usually will fix it for about 6 months.

Here are the steps;

) Put the vehicle gearshift in PARK. safety
) Release the handbrakes.
) Slightly break the rear wheel lug nuts seal while on ground. Just loosen do not remove.
) Jack up the rear wheel.
) Check to see the wheel will turn so you know the brake shoes are not binding against the drum.
) Now you can remove the lug nuts and wheel.
) Remove the drum. Some times the drum has frozen on with rust. You may have to use a hammer and hit along the drum near the outer edges to break it free.
