Here are the steps;

) Block all the other wheels. safety
) Put the vehicle gearshift in PARK. safety
) Release the handbrakes.
) Slightly break the rear wheel lug nuts seal while on ground. Just loosen do not remove.
) Jack up the rear wheel.
) Check to see the wheel will turn so you know the brake shoes are not binding against the drum.
) Now you can remove the lug nuts and wheel.
) Remove the drum. Some times the drum has frozen on with rust. You may have to use a hammer and hit along the drum near the outer edges to break it free.

Rear left tier


Tire* -- I don't know if I would suggest doing this yourself, but try taking the tire off, (this requires you to jack the left rear *tire* off of the ground), and checking to make sure your brake is disengaged, meaning that neither the drums (or pads if it is the sport neon) nor the parking brake is still engaged. If neither are, you have a more serious problem on your hands, but if they are engaged, remove the drums and reassemble. Make sure your springs are in the right spot.

I need to know how to take out the drum from my rear tire


You can go to Alldata online. The web site has the information you are looking for.
The back side of the drum for the rear brakes there is a little whole covered by a rubber cap.
I would remove the rubber cap. The inside of the brake drum there is a gear called a star gear. You need to take a flat tip screw driver and move the star gear so the tension is taken off the pads. Then you have to pry off the drum. IF this seems to difficult you should take the vehicle to a local mechanic for brake service.
