After placing the rear axle securely on jackstands and blocking the front tires, remove the tires and wheels. The brake drum may slide right off, but sometimes three screws hold it, and they need to be removed. The adjuster may also need to be turned for the drum to slide off. Before taking things apart, take a photo or draw a diagram of the components to aid in the reassembly.
