Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla
Be sure your parking brake is off.
Safely jack and support the rear corner of the vehicle and remove the tire/wheel from the car.
The drum *should* slide right off.
If you live in a northern area where rust is an issue, take two 12mm bolts and insert them into the two shallow threaded holes on the front of the drum.
Turn them in equal amounts, using plenty of penetrating oil and patience, and the bolts will force the drum off the hub.
Do not rush or skip the penetrating oil, or you will strip the holes out, they are not very stout!
If you have aftermarket drums that do not have the threaded holes or the holes are stripped out, tap the facing area of the drum (where the wheel touches it) with a hammer using moderate pressure, and working in a circle around the face of the drum. This will loosen the rust and aid in removal. Check periodically for outward movement, if it goes a little bit but gets stuck, continue tapping with the hammer.
It will take longer than the bolts, but will work with patience.
