simple really

1- Jack up car and take off wheel
2- take off centre cap on hub
3- remove split pin
4- remove Castle nut
5- pull drum off and take the outer bearing and washer from the drum.
6- hopefully it will come off easily, if not refer to haynes manual of how to release self adjuster.
7- clean with brake cleaner
8- fitting is the opposite, just grease the bearings and tighten castle nut to the correct torque setting.

jobs dun!

And the Torque setting for the castle nut is FT.

And if the drum dont wanna come off, but you want it off, hit it flat on its face (dont hit the side as you could make a flat spot on the shoes). If bashing it doesnt help cause its probably never been removed, get a flat bladed screwy or a small pry-bar and bash that in to push it forward.

Its a daily thing i do working for LR.

no point taking the drums off to clean inside them, the brake dusts comes out anyway, they arent sealed, there is a few mm gap round them
