I need to replace the wheel cylinder on the drivers side, but I cannot get the drum off. Every other vehicle I have done brakes on has an access to loosen the adjuster with the exception of this one. In the place where there should be a removable rubber cap there is a solid piece of metal secured from the inside. I called my local Dodge dealership and their service manager told me to instead use the threaded holes on the front of the drum to push the drum off, yet another feature not included in my truck. The only other option I know of is to cut the heads off of the bolts that hold the shoes in place, but I do not want to damage the adjuster or the parking brake.
have the same problem?
