My tire was loose i replaced the bearing in my rear passenger tire and the drum looks like it came apart at the bottom what do i do do i replace the drum itself It maybe scratched up on the inside maybe needs turned, or even replaced a parts store can help you with that part. The link above should cover the rest of your questions, even has an exploded view of the drum components to make sure the guts are in right. Just make sure that you can put the drum on easily when you replace or reinstall after you have it turned. You want to be able to feel it hitting the break shoes but do not want it to be tight when putting back on you need a little clearance in there or the break will drag all the time.

How do I remove rear wheel bearings for replacement?

The bearings are pressed in. You can remove them yourself and it's about a 45 mins per wheel job. You will need a brass punch, hammer, tub of grease,block of wood, and a socket the same size as the bearing and a bench to work on.
Best to take the drum to a break repair place and have them remove them and press in the new ones.

Rear wheel bearing

If you have ABS then the wheel bears are not replaceable, and the entire hub needs to be replaced as a unit. The OEM part # is 4340250G11

If you do not have ABS then they are replaceable. The inner bearing is part # 0926225061, and the outer bearing is part # 0926220069.

The rear wheel bearings are pressed in the brake drum with a spacer in between.

Remove the rear brake drum and place it on a work surface.

Tap out the opposite side with a screwdriver/punch and a hammer. (i.e. tap out the inner bearing when the outside of the brake drum is facing you, and tap out the outer bearing when the inside/brae shoe side of the drum is facing you)

Tap in the new bearings making sure that the sealed sides are facing out.

Trying to take off rear drum brakes off a 93 shadow and having trouble...any tricks?

You're probably fighting the "lip" of the drum. Take a small ball peen hammer and tap one side while you gently pry the other and switch sides after a few seconds. You do stand the chance of breaking the hold down springs, that's ok. They are cheap to replace and they come in kits which cover both sides(usually).

I have a pug 406 2l hdi i have had a problem with the breaks

That sounds like a bad brake rotor or drum. If the brake rotor or drum is thick in one spot and normal on the rest that will cause the pedal to pulsate every time the the rotor or drum reaches that part of its rotation. The solution to this problem is to remove the front and rear rotors or drums and take them to a machine shop so they can be smoothed out, bear in mind you may need to replace them if the thick spot is too great.

The break small cylinder is leaking at the right side back.

just keep in mind brakes are a saftey item.
if you could have both rear wheels and drums off then dis assemble linings then remove wheel cylinder and replace, assemble up the same as other side to copy. borrow some maintenance repair books from library or google procedures from manuals with drum brakes all have same principals.some front wheel drive vehicles have wheel bearings that need repacking with grease when removing drum and hub as one and more importantly have the do up nut by feel rather than torque up to setting hub nut and some drums come straight off from hub leaving bearings and hub on vehicle.
garage jack, saftey stands, wheel brace to remove wheel nuts, brake hose clamp, side cutters(pliers),flat head screw driver, hammer, socket set, spanner set,mostly 10mm ring and open ended spanner for wheel cylinder

Rear break drums

The rear brake drums are retained onto the spindle assembly with a cotter pin which locks a nut in place.Remove the cotter pin,and spin the nut off,then remove the washer behind the nut,and the brake drum assembly slides off.You must catch the outter wheel bearing as the assembly is sliding off.When reinstalling,the bearings need to be set with just about .001" of free play.Reinstalling TOO tight will burn up the bearings.
