The rear drum on your Sonata is a slide off drum, If it dosnt want to slide off, its just stuck. Take a hammer and smack it a few times in between the wheel studs being careful to not hit the studs. This should break it loose.

Expert:  Ron replied 6 years ago.
There is no difference on the 2001 and 2002, both are slide off drums.
