Hi:
First, make sure the e brake is off. Next, on the rear of the backing plate, you will find a rubber plug. Remove the plug with a screwdriver. Inside is the self adjuster that automaticly adjust the brakes as they wear. There is a star wheel you will see. It will need to be loostened so the shoes move away from the drum, thus allowing the drum to come off. Also, don't be afraid to tap on the sides of the drum with a hammar to loosten rust and dirt.

If you have any other questions, let me know.

Joe
