Question about 1997 Toyota Corolla
Sounds like your calipers on your front wheels are freezing,
u might have to replace them with a set of new ones and
a new set of pads.

Under normal circumstances, the drum should slide right off once the wheel is removed.
If you have built up rust holding it on, there are two threaded holes near the center of the drum to aid in removal.
Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off.
Be sure to keep them lubed, as they will strip out easily if not.
If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success.

Please DO NOT drive in with the vehicle in this condition!!!!
What you have going on is that the brake caliper (part that holds your brake pads) is bad and sticking. Just remove it, get a NEW one from any chain autoparts store,and replace it. You will have to get a new set of pads as well,as due to the binding, the ones on there now are trashed.
Again,PLEASE do NOT drive in this condition as yours and your fellow drivers ,as well as your passengers safety is at stake.
