After jacking the car up and removing the front tires, remove the wheel-bearing dust cap, remove cotter pin, then remove nut, turning it counter-clockwise, then remove the large washer. Now, tap the top of the brake drum with the palm of your hand, and the front bearing should pop out. Then slide the brake drum off. If the brake drum does not come off, you will have to turn the brake shoe adjuster inward. The brake shoe adjuster is located in the slot in the back near the bottom ball joint. Pull brake drum off.
