SOURCE: Brake drums
Try using a hub puller. I used one with sucess on my 2004 Aveo. The Aveo has studs that are installed in the brake drum (rather than in a hub behind the drum). I used a hub puller with arms that bolted to the wheel studs with a center screw that drives down on the spindle (visible after the drums dust cap is removed). Remove the cap and the spindle nut, install the puller, and a few turns are all that are needed to pop the drum off.

SOURCE: CANT GET DRUMS OFF BACK BRAKES
If you can spin the drum that means the brake shoes are not tight to the drum so just take a hammer or dead blow and hit the drums a few time that should loosen it up. You can use bolts to push it out but I can't remember what size they were off my head, I know a 12mm socket will fit over it.

1.Release parking brake.
2. Apply the brake pedal at least 10 times.
3. Raise and support vehicle with jack stands, etc.
4. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.
5. Remove the lock ring and the caulking nut from the spindle.
6. Remove the drum from the spindle.
Note: Pull the drum straight off the spindle.
There is an opening on the inside for adjusting the tension,It's under a rubber cap.You can use a screw driver to make the adjustment

On my Golf 1.9TDI (2005) both top and bottom Calliper fastenings have a 7mm Allen bolt thus you will need a non standard 7mm Allen Key not 12 point

A couple of days ago my brake lights on my 2004 Chevy Aveo wouldn't work, so I attempted to remove the lamp covers to check the bulbs. Also, before this my shifter would get stuck in park and could only be released by pressing the unlock gadget next to the shifter. Back to the brakes...Well, you open the trunk and remove the two screws just like the manual said, but it was very hard to pull off. There's 2 prongs holding the other half of the light on. The lamp will come loose by prying it (very hard). You think the cover will break, but it'll come loose. The bulbs were all OK.
After much frustration and internet info, the STOP LAMP SWITCH, GM#96436331 ($9.30 at Chevy dealer), which is located under the dash and has contact with the brake pedal, was defective. Once replaced, both my brake lights AND SHIFTING problems were cured. So if the brake lights suddenly don't work or you have problems getting the vehicle out of park, check the switch by pushing the prong (end that has contact with brake) of the switch in and out. If it doesn't retract smoothly...that's the PROBLEM. Good Luck.
