Default How to remove STUCK Drum Brake

Hey guys,

So here is my latest video on how to remove a stuck drum brake. What a pain this one was. Took me 2hrs to do this job!

If you have any methods, comment and let me know (for the next video possibly).

Also, if you like the video, give it a thumbs up and/or leave a quick comment on YouTube (it helps me out).

Thanks!

The adjuster was frozen so it wouldnt move... Will a big hammer damage the wheel bearing?
