How do you remove the brake drums from a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire?

Brake drums can be a big pain in the behind to remove. If they've been on the car for some time, the brake shoes may have actually formed a groove in the drum where they contact it. It doesn't have to be real deep to keep the drum from coming off. You'll have to back off the adjuster star wheels to loosen up the shoes and get them to drop out of the grooves. If that doesn't help, don't be afraid to beat the living daylights out of the drum with a hammer. Sometimes that's what it takes to break them loose.Note that if your drums are badly grooved, you'll probably have to replace them, as there's a good chance that they are beyond resurfacing.
