put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

You need to back off the adjuster located at the top the brake assembly.There's an rubber grommet on the backing plate.You need to use a short flat screwdriver and ratchet back the star wheel in which you acess through the small hole in the backing plate.Now there's an arm that rests on the notches of the star wheel of the adjuster so the brakes don't back off, as the going down the road.This needs to be pushed away from the star wheel in for you to back off the adjuster.This will contract the brake shoes away from the drum.This will allow you to remove the drum.
**A word of caution: if you don't move that arm, You'll be able to adjust the star wheel!but your now expanding the shoes closer to the drums! If it doesn't have automatic adjusting brakes so,you'll have to expand the shoes one click every 7000 miles or click it then spin the drum,continue to adust until you feel an slight drag on the drum as you spin it!

you need a special tool avalable at most parts stores. its a disc brake piston turning tool. you have to rotate piston clockwise while pushing in on piston. you can fabricate something that enguages the slots and push and turn till all the way in.make sure to note position of slots and put them in same place as was before or the pin on the pads wont enguage the slot
