Best Answer

On most drum brakes, there is a rubber plug located on the back of each drum. This keeps debri from getting into them. If you take the plugs out and insert a small flat head screw driver, you should feel on object in there. It is a star nut that controls the tension of the shoe pads. You need to release the tension by rotating the star nut in one direction (can't remember which way it is, sorry). If you reach a point where it stops and the drums still don't come off, you've gone the wrong way. To be sure, you can take a rubber mallet on gently bang on them to loosen them if they are rusted. After you do your work, reverse the turns to tighten the shoes back up but not too tight to where the drums don't turn. Don't forget to put the plugs back in or else you could get a bunch of debris in between the drums and the shoes.

Do you need to take off tires to inspect brakes?
