no year, or car stated, no photo either.
no body type car, (Tracker, Metro,Storm,Prizm)
all are different.
the Tracker in the first years, (wild guess body)
had, bolts 4 on the inner ring on those DRUMS.
the come off (LHT) turned CCW.
Then starting in 1992? the dont have these ever again.
and added just empty screw hole there, that the FSM book
tells you, insert an 8mm bolt here, and turn CW, and the drub backs off, the axle boss.
not pretend I will, it has none of that, just a ***** drum.
and is common, we hammer them off, with emergancy brake OFF
front wheels chocked front and rear, so car cant roll.
We never use metal to metal hammering breakable cast iron drums. we use a 2x4 or a rubber mallet or a dead blow hammer (soft)
then they come right off. (some times.)
you need brake experience to know the bad actors in brakes.
here, ill tell you in few lines. on that. can go pages, but no...
the auto adjusters in the brake shoes can rust and seize
and the drums drag hard,or same with wheel cylinders.stuck.
so if they dont move, try to find read access ports here,
a rubber plug and off it, and try to back off the adjuster per the Factory service manual.
also tap the rubber hammer round and round outer edge to get those pesky shoes to go loose.
take your time and not make it worse.
easy peasy japaneezy.
