How do I remove the rear brake pads off of my van
\015 I cannot figure out how to remove the rear brake pads off of my Chrysler 2001 Town & Country. The fronts were easy\015
This is usually pretty simple. Start by removing the brake drum.\015\012Sometimes the brake pads themselves prevent easy removal. There should\015\012be an adjustment hole on the back side of the backing plate. Pop the\015\012rubber plug out. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to turn the notched\015\012disc. one way will tighten and the other way will loosen it, usually\015\012both sides are different directions. Once the drum pops off you can\015\012begin replacing pads. I like to take a digital photo\015\012first, just in case... I then take each piece off one at a time and set\015\012it on the ground exactly how it went in. There is usually one big\015\012spring that holds the two shoes together, this one is tricky to\015\012release, but it's easier if you adjust that tensioner all the way in\015\012first. There will also be a couple of springs with retainers holding\015\012the pads in place. There will be a notch in the retainer, you'll have\015\012to push down and twist 90 degrees to release retainers and springs.\015\012They make a special tool, but you can use a pliers or vice grip if\015\012you're careful. Don't loose the pin or spring and retainer. Clean\015\012everything with brake cleaner and start to re-assemble.
