UNABLE TO REMOVE REAR DRUMS TO REPLACE BRA

2003 Saturn L200

Brakes problem
2003 Saturn L200 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 75,000 miles

Hi,
I wanted to visually check my rear brake shoes to see if I need to replace the shoes but I cant remove the rear drums.I removed the phillips screw and sprayed with WD40 and gently tapped the drums
but no luck. Is there a tool used for this purpose. Any help would be greatly appreciated.I have also attached a picture.

Your pic didnt go through. If there are 2 threaded holes in the face of the drum use the proper bolts and thread them in, it will force the drum off the hub. If no holes, you may need to get a little rougher with the hammer and hit the face of the drum to shock it off, be careful not to hit the wheel studs though
