SOURCE: Rear Brakes drum 2004 Kia Rio
The rear drums are held on by a spindle nut. You first must remove the dust cap then unstake the nut and remove it. Behind that is a retaining washer and the outer bearing. The bearings can become a little stuck in which case a hammer can usually persuade them to loosen up.

brake drums ar faily simple to change, if u take the wheels off ul see a little centre cap, behind the cap theres a 21 mm nut, be careful not to mix up the nuts cos they are opposite threads, n/s is left hand thread.
remove the nuts (i advise replacin the nuts) then tap the drum while u spin it jus to loosen it off then jus pull it off, be careful with the bearing cos they'll fall out, IMPORTANT! when tightening the centre nuts back up they jus need to be nipped up NOT tight, jus enough to take the play out of the bearings but keep it spinning freely, when put the wheels back on make sure theres no play in it

i myself went through a process close to this with my 2003 Kia Rio. The bearing on my rear drivers side welded itself to the spindle. meaning everything except my brake assembly and the drumb had to be replaced. after getting a new spindle and bearings grease and oil seals i put it back togother. two days later i started to have the problem again. the thing is you cant tighten the lock nut too much its something an experianced wheele worker has to do its all about how it feels when you tighten it, everything still needs to have room to move like the bearings for example, if the lock nut is to tight they wont spin youll end up losing alot more than just bearings again if its put togother wrong. 2nd when you work with bearings when you do one side you do the other, dont want to replace half a set of moving parts, and chances are if one bearing is going out the other one will follow closely. 3rd make sure you have enough grease in there, not enough will resault in friction and heat. remember everything needs room to move good luck

ok first you have to take the wheel off
then you will see the caliper there'
there are to bolts behind that take them out
then take the caliper off dont undo nothing else
take the old pads out
use a caliper to push the cylinder back (its what pushes the brake in)
put the new brakes in the same way they came off
do the bolts up
then pump the brakes
is the cylinder is to hard to push back you will have to realse the pressure buy undoing the bleeder then you will have to bleed them again (but in this case they should move easy

Assuming that youve got drum brakes, they are self adjusting and cany be ajusted and more then they want without frying something, if they are not adjusting properly your self adjusters are probably frozen.
You can get them from kia for 20 bucks a piece and if you do get them unfrozen make sure to check the teeth on them, they are very fine and very commonly strip off, kia call them strut assembly.
