Default 2000 Camry Brake Question

Could someone tell me how to pull the drums off the rear wheels. I tapped
them with a hammer and pulled but that didn't work. Someone told me that
there are two small set screws on the from the of drums that release the
drums. I see the screws, but do I unscrew them to release the drum. or do I
screw them further in to push the drum off the assembly? How does this
work?

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

unscrew the screws. You will need to take a big ball peen hammer which is
heavier than a nail hammer. Hit the flat part of the drum near the studs but
not the studs.do not hit the axle.It will take a few heavy hits. Use the
flat end of the hammer. The hammer will need to weight about 5 or ten
pounds. You may spray wd 40 on the drum around the studs.The drum should pop
loose. do not hit pull or pry the outer edge of the drum. If the screws are
stripped you may have to take a small chisel and hammer, put the chisel on
the outer edge of the screw and hit until it loosens up.

I don't claim to be a brake expert. My rear drum brakes tend to last a
long, long time, but you might want to get a Haynes repair manual. It
is possible that, if the brake drums are worn, and the shoes are
adjusted tight right up to them, you'll need to back off the
adjustment to remove the drums.
You use a screwdriver through an access hole on the star adjusting
wheel.

also make sure the hand brake is off. when you get the drums off you can
wash the brake assy off with a water hose, will not hurt the brakes.
