Sounds like you need some brake service. I would take your pads off and check them replace if necessary, check rotors and replace if needed, check calipers and replace if needed. If this is a drum set check shoes, and drum, and wheel cylinders. Bleed system.
It sounds like the end has popped out of your wheel cylinder. You will have to take off the wheel, brake drum, and replace the wheel cylinder. It will then be necessary to bleed the entire brake system.If the brake shoes are soaked with brake fluid you will want to replace them. While the drum is off , double check that the wheel bearings are also OK.
You will have to get into the adjustment and back off the brake shoes till the drum will slide over the shoes. Some have access in the drum itself a oval hole about 1 inch long may have a rubber plug in it, some have access in the rear back plate same type of hole. you can use a screw driver but a tool made to do the job is easier. Once the shoes has been backed off a few smart smacks with a good sized hammer should dislodge any rust and brake the drum loose from its seat.
that sounds just like a leaky none return velve in the master cylinder or very low on brake fluid it may even have got air in the system also if you removed the rear drums and never ajusted up the brake shoes this could give you this problem check the rear brums first the brake shoes should just be tuching the drums if there not pull off the drums and wind up the ajusters then refit the drum till the drake shoes are only just clearing the drum i know they have self ajusting shoes but half the time they just dont work very well so ajust it by hand,, the front brake are disk's and they are self ajusting,,,
after doing this work leave the car for a minue or so and stamp on the brake to pump them out if you then need to pump the brakes up again that shoes its just ajusted the rear drums,,,the brake pedel should only ever need to be prest once never pumped up,, if this dont help you out and sort out the problem then and only then replace the master cylinder as there normaly very strong and dont brake down often and they often leak brake fluid first,,,my bet is its the rear shoes needing ajusting up
The representative icons are sometimes confusing on here. It is saying 1994 Suzuki Swift and you are saying 2,000 caravan.
I'm goin with you! ha...
Most vehicles that have drums on the rear have a slot (maybe plugged with a rubber or plastic plug) where when the plug is removed, a "star wheel" adjuster (used to spread the brake shoes) becomes accessible with a tool called a brake spoon. If you rotate the star wheel such that the brake shoe "Spread" is less, the drum should come off. And yes, it is probably the pads catching on a ridge. Getting the drums turned might be in order...
I hope this helps you. Good luck!
thats cause you have the parking brake on.
block the front wheels and leave the parking brake off.
if thats not it then they may need some help jumping off of there.
make sure the adjust ments are all the way in
sometimes the shoes wear a grove in the drum and prevent the drum from going over the shoes.if the drum is locked on then its frozen to the hub and will need some beating on.
Get yourself a large hammer and hit the back side of your rear drums. This should break the e-brake loose. Make sure the brake is released inside the car when you do this. What has happened is that brake dust or rust is keeping the brake shoes engaged with the drums.
