hes right, good answer man. that's exactly how it is, and explained when i started at a Mazda shop haha

Take the tire off. And beat the hell out of the drum with a hammer until it releases. Don't have the ebrake on! Usually you have to fight with them a lot. If it still won't come off, there might be a little access hole on the other side of the drum. Look in there and there should be a little adjustment wheel. (might not be there, i don't know about proteges) But when you replace the shoes, only do 1 side at a time, start to finish. Use the other side as a reference.
