SOURCE: Brake drums
Try using a hub puller. I used one with sucess on my 2004 Aveo. The Aveo has studs that are installed in the brake drum (rather than in a hub behind the drum). I used a hub puller with arms that bolted to the wheel studs with a center screw that drives down on the spindle (visible after the drums dust cap is removed). Remove the cap and the spindle nut, install the puller, and a few turns are all that are needed to pop the drum off.

u need to remove small rubber dust cover from back side of brake backing plate. then with a sturdy but small screwdriver,thru this hole, u need to locate auto adjuster plate inside drum, u push small driver against this so it is pushed off the adjuster cam, then with flat screwdriver, or adjusting tool, at same time as u are holding adjuster plate, back off adjuster wheel as far as it will go this is akward to do, but brakes need to be backed off to enable drums to be removed drums wear and develop a lip on edge u should then be able to slide drum off. if still hard tap with a hammer while pulling drum

Behind the brake mounting plate there is a small hole with a rubber plug on the top portion.
Remove the plug. Look from the back of the vehicle and you will see a star wheel in the hole. Stick
a long skinny screw driver with a large blade and rotate it in the direction of risistance.(clockwise).
You will hear a spring poping noise. Rotate a few times and the drums will turn freely.
Then you can slide the drums off.
