Removal & Installation
CAUTION Dust and dirt accumulating on brake parts during normal use may contain asbestos fibers from production or aftermarket brake linings. Breathing excessive concentrations of asbestos fibers can cause serious bodily harm. Exercise care when servicing brake parts. Do not sand or grind brake lining unless equipment used is designed to contain the dust residue. Do not clean brake parts with compressed air or by dry brushing. Cleaning should be done by dampening the brake components with a fine mist of water, then wiping the brake components clean with a dampened cloth. Dispose of cloth and all residue containing asbestos fibers in an impermeable container with the appropriate label. Follow practices prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the handling, processing, and disposing of dust or debris that may contain asbestos fibers.
CAUTION Use of a brake drum puller or a torch is not recommended. Brake drum distortion can result.
NOTE If the brake drum is rusted to the axle shaft pilot diameter, tap the center of the brake drum between the wheel studs.

WARNING Whenever a wheel is installed, always remove any corrosion, dirt or foreign material present on the mounting surfaces of the wheel or the surface of the wheel hub, brake drum or brake disc that contacts the wheel. Installing wheels without correct metal-to-metal contact at the wheel mounting surfaces can cause the wheel nuts to loosen and the wheel to come off while the vehicle is in motion, causing loss of control. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury.

Behind the brake mounting plate there is a small hole with a rubber plug on the top portion.
Remove the plug. Look from the back of the vehicle and you will see a star wheel in the hole. Stick
a long skinny screw driver with a large blade and rotate it in the direction of risistance.(clockwise).
You will hear a spring poping noise. Rotate a few times and the drums will turn freely.
Then you can slide the drums off.

I don't know how to take them off, but they are definitely drums. I have them too. It can be done really reasonably at Just Brakes or Midas. I take mine to Just Brakes.
