Default removing rear drums

Anyone ever remove the rear drums before on the rear brakes? I've done brakes before, but these things just won't come off by tapping on them(from then inside of the car to the outside). I've removed the screw that appears to be holding the drum in place, but it's still not budging.

The car is a 2002 Hyundia Accent GS model. Can anyone give me some advice?

I did that. If you read, all it says is to remove the brake drum!!! It doesn't say how it comes off!!!

I am just trying to see if my drums are stuck or if I am missing something. Do they just pull straight off? Do I have to remove that screw? Is there a trick to getting them off???

My drums are stuck on too. I got around it by removing the bearing nut (the big ass one in the middle, under the dust cap). Take that off, and then CAREFULLY pull the whole bearing/drum assembly off the spindle.
This is assuming the LCs have the same rear bearing design as the x3, but I can't see it being totally different. On mine, the bearing is self contained... nothing uses the spindle as a bearing surface, so just make sure the spindle is clean before you put the rest back on.
Let us know if that works.

Edited to say: The bearing nut on my car is like a 32 mm or something huge like that. You'll need a 1/4 drive (I think it's that) too.

So how did you separate the two once you removed the whole assembly?

Basically you just have to pull like a mother f*cker and work that beast off.:devious: No easy way to do it that I know of... it just freakin sucks. Use a hammer to tap on it when it gets stuck coming off and use a rubber mallet to force it back on. You HAVE TO PULL ABSOLUTELY STRAIGHT to get it off and the opposite to reinstall it.

Never run out of real estate, traction & ideas at the same time.

There are screws that hold the drum on. If the drum is still stuck, take a hammer and tap the drum in several places and pull it off.

I remove mine every once in a while to inspect the brakes and do minor adjustments that the auto adjuster doesn't pick up. When I do need to replace the drum brakes, I will be putting on a different brake setup.

I tried the "pull-like-a-motherf*cker-and-work-that-beast-off" approach, but it didn't work, so that's why I just took the whole bearing off with it. Oddly enough, these are NEW drums that won't come off... I replaced the original ones last summer and the drums slid off no problem at all, but the new ones are on there good...

I have put a little lithium grease on the hub where the drum slides onto it. After that, drum slides right off. Sometimes I have to open up the hole ever so carefully if it is too small.
