loosen emergency brake both sides..open wheel cylinder and let fluid run as you pry gently side to side in between drum adn shoe through backing plate /drum area to collapse the shoes some..... use wd40 or quality rust buster at center of drum /axle area to loosen grip of rust fused metal at hub to drum ..tap tap with hammmer around circumference of drum to dislodge adn loosen shoes from drum and drum from axle..good luck.. be patient work slowly

No just make sure your emergency cable is off and take a large hammer an hit it around the edge or corner lightly and spin at the same time also try pulling with your other hand as you spin this is a technique all mechanics use its very unlikely that you will have to loosen up the shoes with a brake spoon.REMEMBER THE OUTER ROUNDED EDGE ONLY WHERE ITS THE THICKIST.

back the adjuster to the point you can just trun the caliper or the drum with little force. you will hear a little rubbing sound from the brake pad.

You need a pullers to get it off.But if your lucky putting a screwdriver between the drum and back-plate and pize it when your hitting with a hammer it may come off.good luck.

THE BRAKE LINING ON ONE OF THE SHOES MAY HAVE LET GO AND OVERLAPPED THE OTHER ONE,CAUSING IT TO BIND UP..IF NOT,TRY OPENING BLEEDER SCREW AND SEE IF IT RELEASES..IF IT DOES,REAR BRAKE HOSE MAY BE HOLDING WHEEL CYLINDER PISTONS OUT KEEPING BRAKE ON..YOU'LL NEED TO REMOVE AFFECTED DRUM AND INSPECT BRAKES AND REAR HUB/BEARINGS
