  1. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  2. Remove rear wheel and tire assembly. NOTICE: Do not pry against brake backing plate. This will bend backing plate. IMPORTANT: If difficulty is encountered removing drum, use a small flat blade screwdriver to turn the star wheel adjuster assembly. Shortening the length of the adjuster will provide sufficient drum-to-shoe clearance for drum removal.
