Should be a hole in the plate, might be covered or pluged with a rubber stopper. this hole is for getting to the bolts from the rear, you just have to spin the hub one bolt at a time and you need an extension for your sockets.

    If this model does not have the service hole, then the only way is to pull the axle.

Remove rear brake drums


Light Duty Models
  1. Raise the vehicle so that the wheel to be worked on is clear of the floor and install jackstands under the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel. Remove the three retaining nuts and remove the brake drum. It may be necessary to back off the brake shoe adjustment in order to remove the brake drum. This is because the drum might be grooved or worn from being in service for an extended period of time.
  3. Before installing a new brake drum, be sure to remove any protective coating with brake cleaner or a suitable fast-drying degreaser.
  4. Install the brake drum in the reverse order of removal and adjust the brakes.

Heavy Duty
  1. Raise the vehicle and install jackstands.
  2. Remove the wheel. Loosen the rear brake shoe adjustment.
  3. Remove the rear axle retaining bolts and lockwashers, axle shaft, and gasket.
  4. Remove the wheel bearing locknut, lockwasher, and adjusting nut.
  5. Remove the hub and drum assembly from the axle.
  6. Remove the brake drum-to-hub retaining screws, bolts or bolts and nut. Remove the brake drum from the hub.

To install:

  1. Place the drum on the hub and attach it to the hub with the attaching nuts and bolts.
  2. Place the hub and drum assembly on the axle and start the adjusting nut.
  3. Adjust the wheel bearing nut and install the wheel bearing lockwasher and locknut.
  4. Install the axle shaft with a new gasket and install the axle retaining bolts and lockwashers.
  5. Install the wheel and adjust the brake shoes. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.

How to change rear wheel bearing in Mazda 6 2002 1.8


Pretty easy job, if you have rear disc brakes on the car remove the caliper and brake rotor and you will see the hub bearing it just bolts one of two ways from the rear of the backing plate there will be 4 bolts holding it on, or there will be a dust cap in the center of the bearing, remove it and you will see a nut remove the nut and take the hub off and replace. If you have rear drum brakes remove the brake drum and remove the hub the same way should not have to remove the brake shoes at all if you are careful they will stay in place.

REAR BRAKE DRUM WON,T COME OFF


Ok you've some of what I would do, but try this. First AGAIN spray with a good penetating oil, the hub, the lug studs, now a rubber is going to do less than nothing. Take a GOOD size METAL hammer ( would use a 5lb sledge ) and LIGHTLY tap the BACK edges ( edge closest to shock absorber ) True hitting the drum too hard can cause damage. You have to be gentle but strong. If it still didn't move ( you better have removed any clips on the studs :) I would take a BIG flat blade screwdriver between the drum and brake backing plate, and kind of persude that drum with my hammer, while pry it off. Hope this helps
