Question about 2001 Kia Sportage
Exactly that, the brakes locked-up..
What to do to get the drum off: secure the front wheels with blocks, lift the rear axle, take off the wheel, disconnect the brake line to that wheel only, remove the nuts around the middle of drum. remove the two Phillips head screws and put them in the other two holes on the drum, tighten them both a little each at a time and watch the drum slowly slide off. If the blockage puts too much effort on those screws get another ones that can be screwed using a wrench. When the screws go in as far as they can(be careful not to round the holes out), you can use a screw driver to finish prying off the drum, or you can slide hammer it off, You can aid the sliding by pressing on the shoes inward from the moment they are accessible.
