You might have to back the pads off by hand. See if theres a adjustment tab on the back side to fit a screwdriver and release the tension.

Get Out The Hammer
LOL i have had the hammer out since last night...i think the drum was rusted on to the hub so i just sprayed some WD-40 on it and hopefully that did the job...i was just wondering if there was anything else I had to do...But thanks for the info

Thats all I can reccommed - in all my years of brake jobs either the hammer or some WD for a hour or two has seemed to work...... let it sit and see if it helps.... Good luck

I've never worked on the drum brakes of my xB but I know many auto parts stores carry/loan drum pullers. You may want to give your local shop a call and see if they have a puller you can borrow. I know Autozone loans tools for free. The other route is two pry bars on both sides and a hammer. Good luck.

look on the drum, there is the 4 hole for the studs, and there are 2 more small ones, u can stick bolt in there (if u can match up the thread pitch, its usually a 12mm bolt with 8 1.25? i think? ) and screw it untill the drum comes off of the backing plate, be careful you go evenly on each side, or else that drum will crack.

yea tried the 2 holes but both were really rusted and they just broke off...but the good ol handy hammer worked after everything...

before you put it all back together, apply some anti-sieze to the hub where it protrudes through the drum. this will help keep it from sticking next time you take it apart.
yes do it do it
