Rear drums on breaks 2000 dodge caravan
\015 Cant get rear drums off to repair brakes\015
If its the first time there being taken off some times there are locks around the lugs that the company puts on to hold the drums in place while on the line there are two or three of them you must take them off first.
Spray solvent into the wheel lug openings in the drum and around the center. Use a hammer to shock the drum, striking it between the studs and around the outside perimeter. if you can get to the adjuster, back it off so the shoes will clear the lip on the drum. Worst case, if you get it free but can't get it off, cut the two pins that you will see on the backing plate (half way from the bottom about an inch from the edge, appear as two round dots about 1/4" in diameter, 180 degrees apart), that hold the shoes to the plate. These are easily replaced and available at any parts store (cheap) and, many are in poor condition to begin with.
