Question about 2005 Ford Focus
Some people will tell you to remove the four bolt behind the drum but i think it is much easier to remove the middle bolt with a 30mm ratchet. But be careful to torque correctly the nut in place. I think it's 140 lbs i'm really not sure. If you do it by the four bolt, be careful with the abs sensor, i break mine lol

Undo the four bolts behind the drum and it will come off easily.

Need to remove large muti piece nut. be careful & don't overtorque or it ill fall apart. Drums are hard to pull off due to brake shoes worn into drums. may ned wheel puller.

if you have rear disc brakes all you have to do is take the two bolts off and lift the caliper off and pull the pads out but now if you have drums there is a rubber boot behind the whole drum assembly take it out use a screw driver or a brake tool to back off the tension of the shoes

use a large c-clamp to bottom out the caliper pistons remove the caliper bolts .slip out the pads and remove the caliper from the disk
hang the caliper from a coathanger wire to avoid damaging the brakeline after replacement of the pads;brake bleeding is not needed Rotors are held on to the axle like a wheel; with bolts
