    There should be 2 threaded holes which allow you to insert bolts into and "push" the drum out away from the hub. The parking brake is off, right?

    Mr. Anytime is right, use the threaded holes to pull the drum off. The reason it wont come off easily is because the drum has a wear ridge so count on turning or replacing the drum.

    You can also try backing off the self adjuster assembly but this isnt quite so easy as the bolt trick . you crawl under behind the brakes and pop out the oval shaped rubber plug on the brake backing plate. Then stick your screwdriver #1 inside and push the little lever back (toyota says use a wire, which is a good idea, there's not much room in that little hole).

    And use screwdriver #2 to turn the gear. Turn it in the way that makes it loose, youll know fast which way. And then turn the gear til it wont turn any more and hopefully the drum will now come off.



    If it is still stuck after all this dirty work, use a big big 3-jaw puller to get the drum off. If you need to do this i wouldn't worry much about damaging the drum in the process - any drum that's stuck on this good is probly due for the scrap heap anyway.
