If by cover, you mean the brake drum itself, then what you'll have to do is back the brakes off with a flat screwdriver or a special brake tool. On the other side of the mounting plate, there should be a rubber grommet of some sort in a hole. Remove this to gain access to the adjuster wheel. Turn the adjuster wheel until the brakes are loose enough to remove the drum. If you turn the adjuster the wrong way, it will tighten the brakes. Rotate the drum while moving the adjuster to determine if your going the right way. When you put new brakes on it, turn the adjuster until the brakes barely rub the drum, then back it off until they quit rubbing. Hope I've been some help..

when you say cover, on top of the axel, in back of that plate, there is a screw, Phillips I believe, that holds that plate on. I had the same problem, banging and all, just to find out there was a screw holding that plate on. Some auto repair manuals do not list this and some do. Hope this answers your question.
