What is proper way to remove rear brake drums from 2003 Hyundai Elantra?

Nearly all cars with rear drums have threaded holes on the face of the drum into which you can insert long bolts. As you wind the bolts into the holes it pushes the drum off the hub. The holes may be of several thread sizes, metric or U.S., so be careful that you use the proper size; you don't want to run the wrong size bolts in and strip the threads.

Don't forget to release the parking brake.

I defer to bejay who is more knowledgeable on that particular model. Still curious why you're pulling one on such a new car.
