Drum has two slot for bolts to pits in. the bolt serve as your jack to take your drum's off. and remember the way the cable pits. the same it back.

there should be three or four large nuts on the inside of the drum. now these nuts are on realy good so it takes a lot of force to get it off if you have trouble getting it off you should get an extender to help with the force. Now with the break fluid going every were it could be cause you broke the metal tube.that is easy to replace. just follow it up and undo it.

1.Release parking brake.
2. Apply the brake pedal at least 10 times.
3. Raise and support vehicle with jack stands, etc.
4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
5. Remove the lock ring and the caulking nut from the spindle.
6. Remove the drum from the spindle.
Note: Pull the drum straight off the spindle.
There is an opening on the inside for adjusting the tension,It's under a rubber cap.You can use a screw driver to make the adjustment

hello, sounds like something is unpluged, dash lights have small bulbs in the basils, they do not normally blow, do you have the wright tail light bulbs in , they are not all the same, i would check them first, if you had to , you could run a jumper wire from your parking light in front to the rear tailights, just the running light only, there is two or three wires that run to tailights, you might could try that, friend of mine has done that,

the constant velocity joint is either held on by bolts (most likely reverse thread but might not be) or just the pressure of the carrier (holds the brake components) you may have to loosen (you can take out if you need) the front strut inorder to finagle it out, disconnect the strut from the carrier at the bottom of the strut, and depending on the setup of your car (im unsure of toyotas) you can either pull the carrier up and out of its holder (via the ball joint) or turn it and push it to the side (if you disconnect the tie rod to help turn the carrier or take it out, you will have to get a professional to re-align your car) so just turn the carrier using the steering wheel if you dont want to pay for an alignment.
WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT PULL HARD ON THE CV JOINT. the bearings will pop out and youll either have a really hard time getting them back in or your gonna buy a new one.
(dont loosen the center nut on the strut if you dont want to die) only the side 3 nuts on the strut tower.
(this job is usually a pain so grab a prybar to help and do it carefully and dont get aggrivated. you may need a friend to help.)
(last thing, if you need help getting everything back together, place a jack underneath a stable place on the A-arm to re-tension the spring so you can bolt everything back together without too much fuss.)
any questions do not hesitate to ask, this job can be dangerous and you wont have a moving car if you do something wrong.
Hope this helps!

I don't know how to take them off, but they are definitely drums. I have them too. It can be done really reasonably at Just Brakes or Midas. I take mine to Just Brakes.
