Cannot turn self ajuster on 2001 dodge dakota to remove drum


You will need to push the locking arm out of the way, it is a paddle that keeps the adjuster from moving in the reverse direction. Shine a pin light in there to see it and try to push it back

check for battery short inside battery have some one check for ac voltage in battery and alternator out put,,,headlight switch would be next to check or replace

You need a pullers to get it off.But if your lucky putting a screwdriver between the drum and back-plate and pize it when your hitting with a hammer it may come off.good luck.

Just had that problem w/ my 01 Dekota, it was the resistor that used to be mounted on the firewall and easy to get to but that is now mounted low on the back of the engine jammed into a bey tight position. I couldn't get to it myself, so ended up taking it to neighborhood garage. Cost me about $150
