    there possibly is a threaded hole to run a bolt into that will press the drum off the hub plate


    what year and model do you have?


    as far as how to do it, you need a manual. its a long explanation. either that or just go with it and put it back together the same way you took it apart.


    you really need the brake spring tools to make life easier

    Brakes

    If you haven't done rear brakes before take one side apart at a time or take a picture before you remove anything so you have a reference to see how it goes back together. The springs should be color coded. Also, one brake shoe usually has less friction material than the other, the short shoe always goes towards the front.

    Don't take any chances, brakes are nothing to fool with. Ask around and I'm sure you will find someone who has done it before to give you a hand for a couple of beers and a hamburger.
