mine was rusted to the drums backing plate the guy had to remove the whole lot to get it off so unplug abs unplug handbrake and remove the whole back plate to the drum then knock the hub through it was badly rusted on and the guy said every one hes done with drums is the same i was standing with him as he done it so i know hes not fibbing no need for wd40 or heat just a knock with a hammer does the job since the hubs caput anyway
The hub sticking to the back plate after the bolts removed is quite normal though, it's not really a big task to scud them with a hammer to knock them off.
i had a job doing my misses dads 206, drums on rear.. tried for ages with the pig of a nut. heat, power bar, with tubing on it for more leaverage. once i got it off eventually the drum was siezed on, but turned freely constantly (even with handbrake on). so i went work and got a 5tonne press, hooked it on the drum with 5 legs all pulling equally, i gave up once it bent the centre shaft... he took it garage, he said they litterally had to smash it off and replace the full assembally
Haha, yes brake drums are another matter! I'm surprised the pins holding the shoes didn't burst and you end up pulling the whole lot off. That's happened to me before. I will be happy when they stop producing cars with drum brakes!
