Question about 2005 Pontiac Vibe
Rear brake drum will not budge, how can I get it off?
I'm assuming you have the parking brake off right? You need a rubber mallet and start taping all around it to break it free it will come off.

Remove the brake caliper
Remove the disc, (rotor)
Remove the 34mm nut on the axel shaft
Remove the three (3) bolts from the back side
You will need a wheel puller (three jaw will work well)
Place the puller over the hub and tighten, this will push the shaft out of the hub. Now you have to pull the hub assy. out of the mounting bracket. I found hitting each side,of the hub with a lead hammer to work well. Don't forget to disconnect the ABS senser on the back side of the hub assy.
Do not over tighten the 34mm axel nut when you install the new assy. If you use an impact whrench on it you will damage the bearing.

SOURCE: 2006 Pontiac Torrent rear drums
They pull off just like any other vehicle, unless you live in an area where they use salt. Brake and suspension parts on these rust and sieze quickly. Soak with penetrating oil and keep tapping around perimiter. I do this for a living, and I've had Torrent drums take me hours to break loose (I'm surprised the wheels even came off)

will have to remove the door panel unless it has a small piece in the upper corner by the mirror. should have three 10mm nuts that hold it on.
