Brake drum wont come off

Answers :

Jack up the desired side and put it on jackstands. Now make sure the front wheels are blocked against front or rear motion and make sure the brakes are off, this includes the emergency or hand brake.

The pressure of the rear brake pads against the drums should be minimal enough that you can wiggle the drums off. You should not need to adjust the cables - which are for the emergency brake connection.

Grab the brake drum with both hands on opposing sides and gently wiggle back and forth while pulling out toward you. Some of the tension will be from the pads and some will be from the bolts. Once you advance it a few millimeters, it will start to get easier.

As always with brake work, be sure not to disturb the dust or breathe it. Using proper brake cleaner products can really help your health down the road.
