Make to chock the front tires and leave the emergency brake off. Jack the vehicle and remove the wheel. The drum is only held on by being squeezed between the hub and the tire, so when new they just slide right off. However, if you live in the rust belt you will have to beat the hell out of it with a hammer. First, get some good penetrating fluid like "PB Blaster" or "Liquid Wrench" and soak the area around the center hub and lugs. Second, try gently gently tapping on the studs (bolts) but be careful not to miss or you will bugger up the threads. If it still wont come off get a bigger hammer and hit it from the back, being careful not the damage too much while swinging away. Continue rotating the drum while beating on it so as to remove it evenly so it doesn't get wedged.
