- Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
- Remove the rear tire/wheel assemblies.
- Thread two 8 x 1.25mm bolts into the threaded holes two turns at a time to lift the drum off the hub.

If resurfaced, recheck the inside diameter. If the drum exceeds the specification, replace the drum. Compare the measured brake drum inside diameter to the following specifications:
