Default 2001 CRV EX Rear Brake Drum Removal

I am trying to remove rear brake drums to check pad wear but not sure how to get drums off. Does the large nut in center of hub need to be removed? If so please help. Thanks

No, don’t remove hub nut. And don’t forget to release parking brake. It should just come off.

The nut has nothing go do with it. Just remove the wheel, and if the drum is rusted to the hub a bit, try tapping it all around the circumfrence with a chunk of wood or a plastic mallet. The drum may be constrained by the brake shoes if the park brake is ON, or if the shoes are adjusted too tight (and the drums are grooved). Be aware that there are at least 11 points inside each rear drum that have to be lubed with the proper chemical . . . . Are you up for it?

Actually I had the rears replaced about 1 year ago. They now squeak when they get damp and I just wanted to remove the drums in order to inspect and clean the brakes. Thanks

They're probably too clean. Without the proper lubes the internal parts will rub and squeek, and the auto-adjusters will stop working too.

Just had one of mine apart. Wrong lube seized up the star wheel.

Posticon Crv drum removal help tool

using 2 metric bolts in the threaded holes on the face of the drum will help you "pop" the drum off. It's too late (and cold!) to go rumaging thru the garage to find mine to tell you what size they are... but someone else may know - or you might be able to find the bolt size with a search.

Thanks I think they are 8mm according to another post. Do I just tighten them into the threaded holes which should then loosen the drum?

I thought they were 8mm - but didn't want to guess. a little bit of lubrication on the threads and turn them in evenly on both sides. use a mallet as indicated by Curly...
