SOURCE: Rear brake diagram
Look at other side rear brake, if you can't transpose it in your mind, then stick a big mirror in front of the other side and take a photo of the brake image in the mirror ... hmmm, you may end up thinking like this after a while. I don;t know that that is a good thing;~).
good luck, ..ajm

All your major auto parts stores have web sites that can help you with your project with instructions and diagrams. Also i think chiltons has a web site to.

most drum brakes are pretty much the same. once you've got the wheel off, it is just a matter of beating on the drum until it releases. get a big hammer and beat the living daylights outta the drum, but try not dent it or break it... it will eventually release. the brake shoes are in there. take a picture of them if you want, so you can refer to it when you put all those springs back in there. also take both wheels off and work on one side at a time so that you can refer to the other side if you get confused. you must bleed your brakes when you are done so find a helper to pump the brake pedal while you operate the bleeder valve.

SOURCE: cannot remove rear rotor
you can also spray a good amount of W-4 or any kind of rust solvent where the disc sits on the hub. Let it stay for a while make sure it is soaked, make sure the car is in Neutral not in park!! What you would want to do then is hammer with a 4LBS plastic mallet from the inside out of the rotor by rotating it in three to four different positions. Repeat this process a couple of times and it will come off. Make sure there is no locking washer on the wheel bolts, if so you will have to cut them off. Trust me i just changed mine two weeks ago and it worked fine!

There should be two bolts that hold the caliper to the axle assembly. Remove these two bolts and slide the caliper off. At this point check the rotors for abnormal wear or grooves. Depending on how many miles you have on them I would replace them regardless. Before you insert the new pads into the caliper I like to use a C clamp and a piece of flatstock to force the pistons back to their original location. If you don't do this you will not be able to fit the caliper over the rotor. Before installing the caliper if you did buy the new rotors use some brake cleaner to remove any of the cosmoline oil that they are shipped with. Remember to chock your front wheels or use jackstands if you have enough. Good luck!
