REAR BRAKE SHOES

Toyota Sienna

I own a 1998 Sienna and the rear brakes squeal. I replace rear shoes in the past on other cars so I thought this was easy. I do not see how to remove the rear drum. There is no star nut and I can not budge the drum off the hub. Can someone tell me how to remove the drum? Thank you. :

After you remove the wheel, you will see two small holes on the drum near the lug bolts. These are used to back the drum off. I think what you screw into the holes are called jack screws, but not sure. It's a metric bolt that you screw in, and the drums backs off. I personally like this better than the old star nut/ hammer method! Good luck!

How did you proceed? Did this work out for you?
