Make sure the wheel turns and adjuster backed off . If you can see a Countersunk screw in the face of the hub remove it. If hitting it fails , usually you can see two small 8,10 or 12 mm holes in the face of the hub . Find the correct bolts and screw them into the the hub , it should force the the drum to pop off . What car is it , and does it have tapered wheel bearings on the outside of the drum?

Don't listen to the last guy. The drum does not just slide off. You have to remove the axle by removing the eight 5/8" bolts and pulling it out. Inside the hub you will find a ratcheting lock nut. Visible will be 4 slots where a special socket fits. You can buy the socket from a parts store or you can just use a 1/4" punch and slowly hammer to slowly thread the nut off. Drivers side is left hand thread while the passenger side is right hand thread. Remove the nut and the outer bearing will fall out (so catch it before it hits the dirt). Then slide the drum off. While you inside there it is a good idea to replace the axle seal. It's about $30 and an easy change.

back the adjuster to the point you can just trun the caliper or the drum with little force. you will hear a little rubbing sound from the brake pad.

Jack up rear of car till tire is off the ground.
Remove lug nuts & remove wheel.
Remove phillips screw(s) from drum.
Using a hammer, strike the drum to loosen it from the hub.
Remove drum by simutaneously turning it and pulling it outward away from the vehicle.
