You can do it either way. If the drums are worn you may have to also access the self adjusters and back the linings off. There ususlly is a slot on the brake retaining plate to unscrew the self adjusters.

    there are at least two threaded holes at the brake drum located near the center of the hub. insert and thread a long bolt into each of the threaded holes to move the brake drums away from the back plate of the brake drum.

    And make sure not to engage your hand brake as this holds the brake drum tight!

I have a 2000 suziki grand vitara and cant furure out how to remove the rear drums


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel(s).
  3. Release the parking brake.
  4. Remove the parking brake lever cover screws and loosen the brake cable locking nut.
  5. Install 2, 8mm bolts into the brake drum holes and uniformly tighten each bolt. Tighten each bolt until the brake drum is removed from the vehicle. If there is difficulty in removing the drum, insert a small tool through the hole in the rear of the backing plate, and hold the automatic adjusting lever away from the adjuster. Using another narrow, flat tool at the same time, reduce the brake shoe adjuster by turning the adjusting wheel.
If the drum is difficult to pull off using the bolts mentioned above, the parking brake is most likely the cause and will have to be adjusted "IN" to prevent drum to shoe contact.

2006 1.6 grand vitara front pads ready for renewal.wheels appear to be stuck to discs after wheel nuts removed.


if the brake pads were worn enough or if the caliper was stuck then it would have generated enormous amounts of heat, causing the wheel the stick to the rotor. when I have had this problem I put the lug nuts back on the lugs 2 or 3 turns and tap on them with a hammer, this usually breaks the wheel loose.

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.
