On my '88 323, you have to remove and discard the axle spindle nut. Then you can use a brass hammer to help break the drum loose. It should pull right off once you break the dirt and/or rust "seal". Make sure you get a new spindle nut first ($3-5 at a discount parts store), you have to "spike" the nut after it's snugged up to hold it in place, and you can NOT safely reuse the old one.
