1996 Toyota Paseo Question: removing rear drums

how do you get the rear drums off? I have removed the tire and dust cap and backed off the star wheel, not sure if I need to remove center nut and bearing or if it's just rusted on there good. -
Answer 1
looks like the spindle nut has to be removed http://www.napaonline.com/Search/MultiImagePopup.aspx?A=BK_6301566_0281414990&An=599001+599999+101996+109999+50070+59999+2070021+3999999+12602+12684 and you can see the hole in the drum here http://www.napaonline.com/Search/MultiImagePopup.aspx?ImageIndex=2&A=NDA4401720_0260410382&An=599001+599999+101996+109999+50070+59999+2070021+3999999+12602+12684 But pay attention how tight the nut was and the cotter key location -

Thought that might be the case but didn't want to remove it if not neccessary. Thanks for the info and sights. Very helpful. -
Answer 2
it should have two small holes on face of drum that are theaded for a 12 0r 13 milimeter bolt,which you theat into the holes which should loosen the drum so it will come off -

I thought that but there are no holes in the drum, another suggestion was to remove the cotter pin and spindle nut so think i'll try that. Thanks anyway -
