Question about 2005 Kia Rio
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

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.

I would suggest getting a "Chilton Book" for that car..
It has all the "how too" info along with pictures and diagrams..
You can find it in you local parts store - or online..
Have a great day !

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.

You may want to revisit those rear brakes to make sure the parking brake linkage is hooked up properly. There is usually a spring that needs to go over the parking brake linkage and make sure the cross bar is facing the right direction and holds both the shoes and the parking brake linkage.
