    It may already be gone. If there are two small empty holes (one of which
    has the threaded portion of the hub underneath), then the screw wasn't
    reinstalled when the drum was removed previously.

    Chances are it's just rusted on or there's a rust ridge preventing it from
    sliding over the shoes. I have about a 3 pound plastic hammer I hit them
    with to knock them loose. What's that in metric, about 1.2kg? If they
    break loose from the hub but still won't pull all the way off, you'll
    probably need to remove the console and loosen the parking brake cable to
    get enough play to remove the drums.
