Brakes problem
1995 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 140000 miles

I am trying to change the rear brake pads. The pads are into to the drum and I cannot remove the drum. How do I loosen the self adjusting screw when there is no hole or port to access the screw?

Do you
have the same problem?

Here is a picture of what I gathered off of ALLDATA. There should be a knockout stamped in the drum. The only other option is grinding/shearing off the heads of the holddown pins, or prying until the holdown spring washers pull through.
