Folks, I gave up after struggling with one side of the drums this afternoon. I was attempting to remove the drum from the driver's side rear, as I hope to take this vehicle on a rather long trip soon, and would like to inspect the brakes before we leave. I'm not sure which way to turn the star wheel, and after messing with it for a couple of hours, just put the wheel back on. What am I missing? I had hoped that the drum would rather easily slip off, but no go. I am not sure which way to turn the star adjuster, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for removing those pesky rear drums. Thanks so much in advance!
